"Great service and great people who genuinely care... [Water'n'Wine] has saved us hundreds of dollars."

Water'n'Wine Sorefront

Water’n’Wine has been serving Nova Scotians since 1994. In 2012, the operation was expanded to include on-site brewing. Hundreds of Nova Scotians could now have their wine made in-store, and take home their made-to-order craft wine at a fraction of the liquor store price.

In 2016, we began offering all-grain brewing ingredients for passionate home brewers.

Today, we're Colchester County's largest brewing store and as passionate as ever about wine, and making your money go further.

Now that you know the history, let's meet the team.
