Benjamin Bridge was established in 1999 by Gerry McConnell and the late Dara Gordon. The winery is located in the heart of the Gaspereau Valley on the Bay of Fundy, an area who’s cool climate is strikingly similar to the Champagne region of France, making it the perfect place to produce their world-class Méthode Classique sparkling wines. Today Gerry and Dara’s twin daughters Ashley & Devon McConnell-Gordon lead a small family-like team alongside chief innovator and head winemaker, Jean-Benoit Deslauriers. Their use of regenerative farming & low intervention winemaking practices has resulted in a remarkable collection of wines that represent the distinct and unique terroir of Nova Scotia.
