Delaine Vineyard is dedicated to providing premium quality vinifera grapes for the Jackson-Triggs' Niagara Estate winery. Once an apple orchard, the vineyard also serves as a research centre dedicated to maximizing fruit quality by tracking the impact of different clone and rootstock combinations, pruning techniques, soils, and climatic conditions on a range of grape varietals.
This vineyard is taking a visionary approach to viticulture in the region. The majority of grapes planted are red varietals including Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah. The white varietals: Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer, and Semillion, complete the vineyard.
