Agriculture department backs wine research

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada has announced it will spend $400,000 on a wine grape research programme at its research centre in Kentville, Nova Scotia.

The research is intended to help the province’s wine industry by investigating varieties, growing techniques and processing, to help grape growers and wineries take full advantage of the region’s unique microclimates and land.

Lawrence MacAuley, federal agriculture minister, said in a statement: “Nova Scotia is quickly establishing an international reputation for wines, as are many regions across Canada. This research will identify new opportunities for growth and increase demand for Nova Scotian and Canadian wines.”
