Jackson-Triggs Okanagan Estate Winery is open year round. Jackson-Triggs is a blend of our founders’ names,
Allan Jackson and Don Triggs, who established the winery in 1993. They also have another vineyard in Niagara.

They are Canada’s most awarded winery. Pretty awesome to see all their hard work pay off.

Driving through the estate was awesome too since there were winding roads of grapes.

Their wine tastings consisted of both Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin wines.

There is a long bar and of course since it’s a popular winery, there were a lot of people. We had to wait a little bit to get to the bar.

The tasting room was nice and there are 2 areas.

We tried their complimentary wines which consisted of a red and their ice wine.

We took a liking to their 2014 Jackson-Triggs Reserve Riesling Ice Wine. Usually we don’t like ice wine but this one was really good.

Honey golden in colour with intensely sweet densely layered flavours of tropical fruit, apricot and honey backed by crisp acidity, a thick mouth feel with an extended elegant finish.  This Icewine pairs beautifully with rich seafood, sushi, and a variety of ripe cheeses.

It was one of the memorable wines from our roadtrip, so a few weeks later we bought a bottle of the ice wine for a friend.
