Having recently lost our own mother in October 2009 after a lengthy and debilitating stroke, we understand firsthand how awful this illness is and how preventable it could have been. We know that our family is only one among many that have been struck by this. Every 7 minutes, someone dies from heart disease or stroke and heart disease and stroke is responsible for one out of three deaths per year. We are proud to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario and hope that you will join us in this wonderful cause. We hope to see you there and raise a glass to your health! A glass of red wine from time to time is good for your heart health! Cheers!

Meet the winemaker. Our 1st celebrity winemaker is Marco Piccoli of Jackson-Triggs, Niagara. He will showcase the signature wine, that has put Canada on the world wine map, Icewine. Growing up in north eastern Italy in one of the world’s most established wine regions, it is hardly surprising that Marco Piccoli’s interest in winemaking started at an early age. However, it wasn’t until his late teens that his true passion was fully realized. Having worked on a number of vintages over the past ten years in Italy, Germany and Argentina, Marco’s experience in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres has provided him with enviable knowledge and skills that he now brings to his work at Jackson-Triggs. Brimming with a passion for winemaking that reaches far beyond the cellar door, Marco enhances the Jackson-Triggs style with his own signature. “Wine is alive, and expresses its unique vigour from the vine right through to our palate,” he says, “and I enjoy infusing each grape with part of my own personality.” Recognizing that his challenge is to continue to create wines of exceptional quality and value, Marco looks forward to being part of Jackson-Triggs’ success well into the next decade. View a recent interview with Marco Piccoli at Jackson-Triggs here. Entertaining, knowledgeable and charming Marco Picolli will showcase the signature wine, that has put Canada on the world wine map, Icewine. Although icewine or “Eiswein” was first created and continues to be made in Germany, Niagara’s entry into this extreme winemaking, although recent, has many experts around the world touting Niagara’s icewine as quite possibly the best in the world! Experience Marco Piccoli’s Cabernet Franc icewine, anticipate the alluring aroma of raspberry and plum with a hint of fig, intense flavours of berries and rhubarb with a silky lingering finish, Embrace the words and the passion of Picolli while you sip and savour this specialty nectar, often referred to as the “Nectar of the Gods”. Many thanks to our generous sponsors for making this all possible.
