Bear River is a maritime climate paradox. There is calm air, exceptional summer sun and no fog. These conditions create a vineyard climate found in few areas of eastern Canada.
The vineyard environment and aspect in Bear River ripens eight varieties of vinifera. Well drained glacial soil and steeply sloping rows, warmed by the inland flow of the sea creates an ideal vineyard climate.
Bear River Village is suspended over the tide on stilts, with hillside homes and churches clinging to the steep slopes and streets that rise from the river. The tidal estuary flows inland from the Annapolis Basin creating maritime vistas and unforgettable images of winding seaside roads and rural countryside.
