An appreciation for craft and an immense love of art, beauty, and design underscores every detail at Culmina.
Vision & Creation
Culmina Family Estate Winery is the result of a lifetime of experience in the wine industry for Don, Elaine and Sara Triggs. Having worked in the industry for a combined 40+ years, Don and Elaine began in 2006 with a simple goal: to make the highest quality wines possible from their own family estate.
Culmina is a family-owned wine estate operated by the Triggs and a small team of dedicated professionals. For the Triggs, ownership does not mean standing on the sidelines, but rather a full-time, hands-on commitment to every aspect of the business. Their singular objective: to maximize the quality of the wine produced from their Golden Mile Bench property.
“Winemaking at Culmina is a creative pursuit driven by the passion and expertise of our Vignerons.” ~ Sara
Culmina is lucky to have the opportunity to work with exceptionally talented Viticulture and Oenology professionals. All hailing from France, Jean-Marc, Alain, and Pascal offer a wealth of industry experience from both Canada and abroad. Their educational and training background encompass both winemaking and grape growing disciplines, giving them perspective on the entire wine production process, from vineyard to grape to bottle.
