Jackson-Trigg what have you done!!!

Once upon a time we could enjoy a flight of wine with pairings of excellent food. From this experience we would glady purchase wine. In fact we would buy the wine and attempt to recreate the pairing of food. Then you changed. Have a glass of wine and a few bits and bobs of food to go with it. I had to hope I chose well with the wine! This time, 18 August 2013, there is a food stand of bread, cheese or sandwich and get your glass of wine at the counter. Really Jackson-Trigg? You have ruined what was absolutely first-rate about you. Why?

I see no reason to come back. Next time its Strewn or Inniskillen! Sadly no longer you.

Even the washrooms were a let down. Not clean. Ugh.

“Beautiful grounds!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

We absolutely loved our tour of the Jackson Triggs Niagara Estate! The grounds are serene and well-kept. The tour was informative and fun at the same time. It only costs $5 to take the tour and if you buy a bottle of wine at the end, they take $5 of the cost of the bottle making it a free tour. Great way to spend an afternoon and to get away from the hustle and bustle of Niagara Falls.

“Great location, fine wine, poor food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

My sister and I wanted to combine our wine tasting with lunch on the patio alongside the vines. Even on a busy Saturday there were plenty of spaces, but the menu was very limited - cheese basket or ciabatta sandwich with meat. We both opted for the sandwich which turned out to be filled with what in the UK we'd call corned beef. Even a slice of tomato would've gone long way towards rescuing it, but no such luck. The wines we tasted afterwards almost made up for this, especially the sparkling Merlot. Thumbs up for the wine, thumbs down for the food. Other wineries do better food - but then the other wineries we tried had a 1 hour wait, and the patio is a major plus.

“Jackson-Triggs Winery - worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

First you need to correct the spelling of the winery's name. It is Jackson-Triggs. You can check out their web site, but it's more fun to check out the winery itself. http://www.jacksontriggswinery.com/index.cfm?

It's within easy biking distance of Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. We biked there on a gorgeous October day 2 years ago and had a wonderful time. The building itself is a simple, post-modern design which works all four seasons, with a huge fireplace for the winter. Their ice wine is some of the best we have tried, and we bought several bottles for ourselves and gifts. They also have an amphitheathre suitable for concerts (or even a summer wedding). One of the best of the Ontario wineries!
