At Lightfoot & Wolfville, the safety and comfort of our guests, staff and community is always our top priority. We have implemented several new safety procedures and policies such as, but not limited to: enhanced sanitation and hygiene practices, with access to hand sanitizer and hand washing stations throughout the facility and the addition of a full-time custodian role to help carry out the required additional cleaning. We've also added a new full-time concierge position, to implement guest screening, contact tracing and to aid in the safe movement of guests to their destination within the facility. We've installed several plexiglass barriers in close contact areas and have reduced capacity throughout the facility, adding physical distancing markers and signage as needed. Our staff are wearing masks while indoors and whenever six feet of physical distancing cannot be maintained, and have received robust safety training regarding sanitation, physical distancing and understanding the symptoms of COVID-19 symptoms. 

Please note that effective Friday, July 31st 2020, following Nova Scotia government regulations, guests will be required to wear non-medical masks when visiting the winery. We ask that you please wear your mask upon entering the building, when visiting the Wine Shop and washrooms. Once you are seated at your table, or at your designated tasting area, you may remove your mask to enjoy your food and drinks. Our staff will also be wearing masks while indoors or whenever six feet of physical distancing cannot be maintained.

We welcome visitors with well-behaved dogs to a specific, grassed area of our patio with picnic table seating. As this area is uncovered, it is open on good weather days only, and we are unable to accommodate advance reservations. Walk-ins will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis in line with our restaurant hours.

Please note that dogs are not permitted under our marquee tent, inside the facility or on the stone section of our patio. Dogs must remain on-leash at all times and must not be left unattended. If a dog becomes disruptive to other guests (e.g. excessive barking), they be asked to leave.

If you plan to dine with us, we strongly encourage you to make a reservation. While we do accept walk-ins when availability allows, we oftentimes reach capacity in the restaurant. Due to the nature of our climate, we only take advance reservations for our covered Marquee Tent dining area. Our uncovered patio seating is available on good weather days for walk-ins on a first come, first served basis. Please see our restaurant page for a link to reserve.

We offer both appointment-style private tasting experiences and walk-in tastings, when available. Please see the "tasting" section on our visit page for further information on our current tasting offerings.

In the event that you are looking to make a change to an existing private tasting reservation or to cancel, please contact us directly at (902) 542-7774 or Tasting reservations can be modified or fully refunded up to 24 hours in advance.
