If you are intimidated by, but really wanting to dive into, the whole Wine Culture, Jackson-Triggs is a great place to start. Get a ticket for their winery tour and learn from them about winemaking basics. This tour is informative and starts at the vineyard and ends in a tasting, where you can learn a few basics of how to taste wine. A small amount of your tour fee is rebated toward purchase of a bottle of wine. J-T creates a large variety of wines including the beloved Ice Wine that this region is known for. The winery itself is impressive architecturally, and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. When we were there in July, we merely described a type of wine we were looking for. The winemaker came out and told us we would be happy with a certain vintage, but he only had 6 bottles remaining, and we couldn't taste it. We bought it based upon his word. He was absolutely right; it was superb.
