Jackson Triggs Okanagan Estate Winery
38691 97th Street
In 1998, Jackson-Triggs leased a 410 acre site called the Osoyoos Lake Bench from the Osoyoos Indian Band. Located along striking mountain slopes that stretch above Osoyoos Lake, the vineyards enjoy plentiful sunlight thanks to its southwesterly exposure. The vineyards, planted on moderately sloping terraces, feature predominantly sand and gravel soils. High heat during the day is balanced by the night time cooling effect of the lake, providing optimum conditions for vine growth and grape ripening. Classified as the only desert found in Canada, the area's unique climate and soils combine to create an ideal "terroir" for growing a wide selection of premium quality varietals.
