"Twilight in the Vineyard - what a stunning setting for a concert! The quiet horseshoe-shaped hillside is designed with 10 tiers, each providing a comfortable 6-foot wide spot to place a chair or blanket (depending on your preference). All this facing a beautiful wooden stage with an arched canopy for a covering. To get to this beautiful venue you walk past the Jackson Triggs winery with miles of exceptionally kept vineyard to the right. When you arrive you are greeted by the friendliest staff, ready & willing to make your stay a very pleasant one...[Jim Cuddy] finished off the evening with "Head Over Heels," which was very fitting for me because that was exactly how I was feeling about the whole "Twilight In the Vineyard" experience!"
"Plays are not the only offering in Niagara-on-the-Lake in the summer. The region is renowned for its wineries, most of which offer tours and tastings. But state-of-the-art Jackson-Triggs [Estate] Winery, just minutes from NOTL, offers more. Their ‘Twilight in the Vineyard' performing arts programmes are a delight (I attended a performance last year and it was a memorable evening - Ed.). Here guests can enjoy a pre-show tour of the winery before taking their seat in the open-air amphitheatre to enjoy a performance, glass of wine in hand and with a variety of gourmet snacks to look forward to in the intermission."

"An event like no other you've experienced; when me and 500 (or so) of my closest friends brought lawn chairs and a love of music to the Jackson-Triggs Amphitheatre, located behind the winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake, to watch and listen to the Philosopher Kings. The amphitheatre is a beautiful, intimate venue, nestled at the back of the vineyard, where, as promised, "there isn't a bad seat in the house"; and the canopy is the star-filled sky - which after dark was a sight to behold.
Your favourite Canadian band under the stars at this small venue is a refreshing change from the monster venues of the big city shows. These JT shows sell out quickly, so if you want to go don't "think about it"; as Nike says "Just Do It" - you'll be glad you did. Heck I'm still singing the songs and wishing for another glass of Sauvignon Blanc, and its only 7:52 in the morning (the next day). It's small, intimate concert events like these that truly make attending one worthwhile."
