Municipality of Chester

Here's to creativity and one of kind flavours from Nova Scotia!

Here's to our wines, and ciders, and beers, and spirits - dreamed up and hand crafted right here in the Municipality of Chester!

Made fresh with local ingredients, attention to detail, and a desire to deliver a truly unforgettable product.

Cheers to all of that and to your visit!


RED BARN - New Ross

Located on a rustic, five-acre span of farmland in New Ross, Nova Scotia, the Red Barn fruit winery is home to a stunning array of orchards and berries. Pure juice is extracted from their luscious supply of apples, raspberries, cranberries, wild blueberries and from neighbouring orchards. Fermented locally using traditional methods, the result is a wine that's fresh, aromatic and entirely Nova Scotian.  For more on their award-winning wines visit



After a great Grand Opening August 2019 Black Harbour Distillers is ready to welcome you to their great new space and introduce you to their great new tastes. The old Fox Point Community Centre 419 Highway 329, Hubbards) has been completely renovated to include a bar, function space and great outdoor space including a deck, fire pit area and basketball courts too.  Naturally you can purchase Black Harbour's unique array of blended spirits there and check out their craft distillery as well. For more on their offering and upcoming events visit their Facebook page here.



Their cider reflects their values: natural ingredients, exceptional taste, and outstanding craftsmanship. Bulwark's signature blend, is made with apples from the Annapolis Valley, with the focus on a synergy of acids, tannins, and sweetness to create a balance that best reflects their terroir. Their apples are freshly pressed on-site, and juice is fermented one batch at a time. Adjustments are then made to each, ensuring a premium signature blend every time.

TANNER & CO BREWING - Chester Basin

This small brewery in the heart of Chester Basin focuses on traditional German Ale recipes in tribute to brew master Dan Tanner's German roots and to his relatives who were first to settle on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. But in keeping with Tanner's culinary experience he's always up for experimenting and the results of his single batch nontraditional brews are truly inspired.
