Wolfville Magic Wine Bus

Magic Wine Bus Overnight with Dinner

Wolfville Magic Winery Bus Package Special

The Old Orchard Inn and the Wolfville Magic Winery Bus have partnered together for a Winery Getaway special. Limited to Thursdays and Sundays of the 2020 Wolfville Magic Winery Bus Season. Package savings of $50.

A North American one-of-a-kind, this hop-on, hop-off excursion visits five of the most storied and beautiful local wineries. Experience firsthand the unique terroir that creates some of the most memorable wines in the world; learn a little about the region’s history and rooted connection with food; and best of all, get a taste for why this region has a reputation as the centre of wine country in Atlantic Canada. The bus travels in a continuous one-hour loop all day (each time passing through Wolfville). Hop off and expect to be at each winery for about an hour, with enough time to visit four wineries.

A classic double-decker bus will whisk you away for an incomparable day of tasteful adventure in the heart of Nova Scotia wine country. After your winery excursion, where guests spend an average of 4 hours on the tour, return to the Inn for a relaxing evening and a beautiful dinner. The Wolfville Magic Winery Bus will pick up at the Wolfville Tourist bureau at the designated times; 10:30am (excluding Sunday), 11:30am and 12:30pm. Please select one during booking process below.
