Route 925, Pré d'en Haut

A Historical Place

Located in Pré-d'en-Haut, just outside Moncton, New Brunswick, Belliveau Orchards invite you to discover the region it has called home since 1932 , at the height of the Great Depression, a gentleman named Sébastien Bourgeois returned to his village after having succeeded as an entrepreneur in the US. His intentions were two-fold: Create employment for people in his community and take advantage of what he recognized as prime apple growing conditions. Indeed, the rolling hills of clay loam soils, the moderating effect of the Bay of Fundy, and the healthy-looking apple trees that already dotted the landscape motivated him and others to establish their first 100 trees.

Family-owned and operated, They offer a wide variety of fresh produce, juices and wines, available at its country-style market. The winery and cidery is owned by Robert Bourgeois. His son sam is folowing in his footsteps.

Domaine Latitude 46 Estate Winery

110, rue Principale Street,
Memramcook, NB,
E4K 1A9


The 6 acre winery is owned by Dr. William Fitch and Linda Fitch. Having had a dream to own and run a small winery, a chance meeting with the real estate agent holding the listing led to deeper examination of the lands and building. Unfortunately, all the wine-making equipment had been sold off, but the vineyard equipment was still there. They saw a great opportunity to fulfill the dream, at a great location close to Moncton, a major city population. This led to negotiations and an offer to buy. The rest, as they say, is history.

Located on the banks of the Petitcodiac River, the vineyard sits on a gentle south facing slope and holds six acres of vines. They grow Frontenac Red, Marquette, Petit  Perle, Sabrevois, Frontenac Blanc, L’Acadie, ES 2-3-17, Seyval Blanc, Oceola Muscat, Frontenac Gris. The winery produces 200 cases a year.

The finches purchased the property in 2012 and opened in 2017.

Magnetic Hill Winery is situated in a lovely old homestead originally built in the 1870s, and is designated as a Heritage property. The winery opened in 2005 is owned and operated by Jeff and Janet Everett.

The Evertts have been farming since 1987 and developed a large strawberry and raspberry u-pick but was tired of dealing with Mother Nature and wanted to create a value added product that could be sold all year long. Wine has always been their favourite choice of beverage so they decided to create a winery.

The name comes from the Magnetic Hills. Magnetic Hill has been a top attraction in New Brunswick for over 100 years. Originally part of a provincial highway, Magnetic Hill was eventually sold to the City of Moncton and preserved as a tourist attraction while a bypass highway was built around it. Magnetic Hill Park won a Top Attraction award with Attractions Canada. See for yourself - put your vehicle in neutral and let it roll uphill without power! Magnetic or magic?

Winegarden Estate

851 Route 970,
Baie Verte

Werner Rosswog
his wife Roswitha Rosswog arrived in Canada from Germany in 1983. His  family would become a catalyst for a new industry in their adopted province. Winegarden Estate was the first fruit wine-distillery in Atlantic Canada. Forging a new industry where none existed before was not easy, but through tenacity and perseverance, the owners of Winegarden Estate paved the way for future growth of agri-tourism in New Brunswick and opened doors previously closed to the cottage wine industry.

Underlying many of the cottage wines produced in New Brunswick is the talent and expertise of Werner and Roswitha Rosswog of Baie Verte, outside Port Elgin. Together with their daughters Elke and Christina and son Steffan they opened Rosswog Farm Distillery in May of 1992. When the cottage winery program came into being in 1999, the Rosswog family worked cooperatively with Gagetown Cider to produce the first apple wines. They have also been essential to the success of Ferme Maury, Tierney Point Winery and Tuddenham Farms. In 1998, Rosswog Farm was incorporated as Winegarden Estate Ltd. and in 2017 they celebrated their 25 th anniversary . They carry a selection of over 50 wines and liqueurs.

VM Cuvée – The initials VM represent not only the Valiant and Minnesota grapes this wine is made of, but also Dr. Victor McLaughlin of Riverview, NB, a passionate grapevine selector. He donated more than two thousand selected vine cuttings to Winegarden Estate Ltd. because he was happy to find a New Brunswick winemaker who made the production of grape wine from locally grown grapes possible. Naming this wine after him is our way of saying thank you to Dr. Victor McLaughlin and his wife, Peggy. Cheers!

Winemaker Steffen Rosswog
