Built in 1699, this home is known as “The Mission“ and was built at the request of Abbe M Thury, a few miles from Grand Pre. In 1755 the Mission and land became property of the King of England and the Chancery. By 1760 the Township of Newport was created and the home and land was granted to two young men from Rhode Island, named Aaron Butts and George Brightman. In 1980 the property was purchased and the current owner spent three decades meticulously restoring the estate which includes 50 yr BC split cedar wood shingle exterior. The land and buildings make an ideal location for a winery.

This property, thought to be the oldest building east of Quebec city, is truly a rare and unique offering. The cellar of the property is made up of two rooms of rock walls and barrel shaped ceilings. The root cellar, with hewn beams and stone walls, makes for an ideal tasting room. This lower level is accessible through a heavy French cart wide door reinforced with iron.
