Jackson-Triggs Winery for re:porter, the journal of Porter Airlines
Over the past few years, I’ve had the immense pleasure for shooting for the inflight magazine for Porter Airlines, re:porter. It’s printed on a matte stock, the design is crisp, and much like the Porter flying experience, it’s smooth and professional.
For this issue I shot a cover piece profiling the Jackson-Triggs winery, which is celebrating its 11th anniversary this year. Built by the award-winning practice of KPMB Architects, is a stunning and functional hub for the winery in the picturesque countryside of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Known primarily for its ice wine, Jackson-Triggs has recently narrowed its focus, concentrating on the varietals, like Sauvignon Blanc, which head wine maker Marco Piccoli thinks can be most successfully grown in Niagara.
Marco and I spent a few hours touring the facility, highlighting many of the facets of Jackson-Triggs winemaking. The facility is a real marvel; from the contrasts of the Douglas Fir beams and the stainless steel vats in the wine making area, to the intimacy of the underground barrel room.
Be sure to treat yourself to a Jackson-Triggs Summer tour when you have the chance, and gain a renewed respect for Southern Ontario wines.
