Cristall Wine Merchants, Nova Scotia's leading independent wine retailer, offers some of the most interesting wine values in the Halifax area. Situated in Bedford, part of the Halifax Regional Municipality, we are a full service wine retailer offering hundreds of wines from around the globe - the vast majority of which are in the $10 - $20 range.
Our focus is value
To achieve the best price possible we import over 95% of our wines direct from the cellar door side stepping middlemen such as regional exporters, local importers and agents. By doing so we are able to bring unique wines to Nova Scotia at the best prices available. You reap the benefits of direct buying by getting outstanding, handpicked wines at great prices.
