The internationally-recognized wines and Icewines of Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin will be featured prominently in the Terrapin Grille Fallsview Restaurant and throughout the Marriott Fallsview. Customers who purchase the Wine Getaway Package, will be treated to an on-site exclusive tasting of Jackson-Triggs wines. At each winery they will experience a VIP tasting including Icewine and receive a special gift.
“The names Marriott, Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin resonate with class, sophistication and quality,” says Anthony Annunziata, Vice-President of Marketing for the Marriott Fallsview. “Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin are among the best wineries in the country. A partnership between the best in hotels and the best in wineries, in the heart of Ontario’s wine country, makes perfect sense.”
Marriott guests will enjoy wine tastings of Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin wines at the hotel’s wine bar in the Terrapin Grille, tour of the Jackson-Triggs Niagara-on-the-Lake vineyard and winery, VIP wine and icewine tastings at Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin and unique food pairings as recommended by the expert staff at both the Terrapin Grille and the wineries.
The premium wines of Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin are the ideal complement to the new menu at the Terrapin Grille, with its emphasis on fresh ingredients grilled over open flame, bringing the best flavours to the palate. Set this cuisine and wine pairing against the backdrop of the majestic Niagara Falls, and your meal becomes more than a dinner — it’s an experience.
Matching the best Niagara wines with the finest of Niagara’s harvest cooked over the grill of the Terrapin is a big reason why Niagara region was recently voted the No. 1 Food and Wine Destination by TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice Awards, the largest online travel community.
“At Marriott Fallsview, we try to do everything best in class,” says Annunziata. “That’s why the partnership with Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin made sense. These wineries share many of the same values and concepts: that Niagara is a destination that can and does offer best-in-class experiences, whether staying at the Marriott, or touring the Jackson-Triggs or Inniskillin Wineries.”
The Jackson-Triggs Winery tour offers a rare glimpse behind the scenes at how fine Ontario wines are crafted, starting in the 11.5-acre vineyard and going through every aspect of making wine in a cool climate viticulture region — in one of Canada’s most technologically-advanced wineries. Each tour finishes with a VIP tasting in the winery’s boutique.
“It’s an incredible opportunity to partner with the Marriott Fallsview and have the support they want to offer us in return,” says Maria Moessner, Account Manager/Sommelier with Jackson-Triggs. “We complement each other with a lot of similar concepts. The Marriott Fallsview is a destination hotel, one of the finest in Niagara Falls, and Jackson-Triggs is a spectacular property, with several awards for our wines and architecture and an outdoor amphitheatre that supports Canadian talent.”
