Nova Scotia offers $1M incentive to double grape production

Nova Scotia will spend $1 million to nearly double grape growing in an effort to boost the province’s wine industry. “We’re putting in a small amount of public money to leverage a lot of private sector money,” said Premier Stephen McNeil, who announced the Vineyard Development and Expansion Program Tuesday at the Avondale Sky Winery in Newport Landing, N.S. The program will pay each grower up to $6,550 per acre to cover land clearing, tile drainage, plant material, stakes and contracted labour.
