15 of the best wineries in Canada


Jackson-Triggs Winery, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario

Just an hour south of Toronto sits quaint, yet tourist laden, Niagara-on-the-Lake. With a community centred around wine production, the region is a haven of cobblestone sidewalks, upscale lunch spots, cafes, marinas, and parks, which also makes it a popular wedding destination in the summertime. Jackson-Triggs is a recognizable Canadian favourite, and the facility does it justice. The staunch, tall rectangular building is often littered with locked-up bikes from the more active tourists (or those taking advantage of the limited GO Train trips to Niagara wine country that run in the summer). The high ceilings and glass walls of the huge entranceway allow you to walk through to the back patio to see rows upon rows of grape-growing vines. An outdoor amphitheatre hosts live events, including their Summer Concert Series. Jackson-Triggs has been named the best winery in Canada three times, and also sources from vineyards in the Okanagan Valley. More info: www.jacksontriggswinery.com
