Extreme Makeover – wine edition

 Both pullthecork and Jackson-Triggs have had a makeover.  In my case it was as easy as changing my WordPress theme. Jackson-Triggs, however, has come out with new labels and new categories for their wines.  Not only do they look great, they are very easy to navigate when searching through the Ontario section of your LCBO store. Also, the stylized Maple Leaf is very cool.


The Gold series are single vineyard wines expressing the artistry of the winemakers. You pay for this artistry but the wines are top-notch Canadian wines. The Silver series is price at $15-20. I would pick up their Gewurztraminer at this price! That’s a good Ontario white.

The Black Series, my personal favorite in the $10-$15 range, is the new look for Jackson Triggs Proprietors’ Reserve.  J-T make one of my favorite Cabernet Franc / Cabernet Sauvignon blends and I often show off Ontario wines to my American relatives with the Meritage.

Oh, and it’s not like I need another reason to covet the iPhone but these series all have a QR (Quick Response) code on them.  You can scan the QR and get all the technical details of the wine, tasting notes, and food pairing notes.  It really is like living out an episode of The Jetsons. Nice makeover JT.
