Assistant Viticulture (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )

Full Time

  McConnell-Gordon Estates LTD

  Gaspereau NS, Nova Scotia

Benjamin Bridge is a sparkling wine house nestled in Nova Scotia’s picturesque Gaspereau Valley on the Atlantic coast. Its cool climate is moderated by the powerful Bay of Fundy - promoting natural acidities and long ‘hang-time’ of the classic Champagne varietals, which are critical to producing sparkling wines of richness, structure, and finesse.  Primarily, a classic sparkling wine producer, Benjamin Bridge's other strength is brisk, aromatic whites - wines that take full advantage of the same very precise climatic traits that craft great sparklings. Nova 7, coined “Nova Scotia’s iconic wine”, pioneered an effervescent, aromatic, off-dry style in the province crafted on a foundation of quintessential freshness.
