Jackson-Triggs: Artfully Made Wines
The Niagara winery is shining a spotlight on local artists
A Canadian winemaking pioneer with 30 years of expertise in crafting winning bottles, this Niagara-on-the-Lake gem is also a leader when it comes to championing diversity. Through its Local Artist Series, Jackson-Triggs is working to make the wine world a more inclusive place by amplifying the voices of local talent from underrepresented communities. The winery scoured Ontario to find rising stars to showcase on its beautifully designed custom wine labels for these limited-edition bottles. The Merlot and Chardonnay feature up-and-coming Toronto artists, Mark Clennon, a soul musician who recently released his new EP, Foreign, and Witch Prophet, who creates a fusion of jazz, R&B and hip hop and just announced her album, DNA Activation. For a perfect pairing, scan the QR code on these special bottles to get a curated playlist of the featured artist, then cue the music while sipping a wonderful Jackson-Triggs wine.
