VISION & CREATION

Culmina_viewnorth-5

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 2007 with a simple goal: to make the highest quality wines possible from their own family estate. Channelling their lifelong passion and resources into their family-run property in the Golden Mile, Culmina represents their commitment to excellence as well as their desire to craft icon quality wines reflective of their origins.

Culmina is located on three spectacular adjoining benches, scouted for its rich vineyard potential and developed from virgin land. Visitors to Culmina may explore a very limited release of Culmina’s carefully crafted wines – including the highly anticipated Grüner Veltliner – to learn about Culmina’s unique approach to viticulture and winemaking, receiving personalized attention by the Triggs and the rest of the Culmina team.

ARTISTRY & SCIENCE

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 family-run vineyard estate.

Culmina is supported by exceptionally talented Viticulture and Oenology professionals. At the helm of the local team is Jean-Marc Enixon. Hailing from France, Jean-Marc offers a wealth of industry experience from Canada and abroad, infusing his passion in all aspects of the grape growing and winemaking cycle. His tenure at Culmina follows three impressive vintages from BC winemaking Icon, Pascal Madevon, who still supports the project in an on-going basis following his transition to Consultancy.

Since Culmina’s inception has also been Alain Sutre, Consultant from Bordeaux. With his education and experience encompassing projects both in Canada and overseas, in areas of vineyard development, winemaking and grape growing disciplines, Alain provides invaluable input into the entire production process, from vineyard to grape to bottle.
