Trail Estate Winery

 

This boutique winery produces uncompromising terroir-driven wines. Winemaker Mackenzie Brisbois utilizes native yeasts (wild ferments) and minimalist techniques to craft Pét Nat Sparklings, Chardonnays, Skin-Fermented Whites (Orange Wines) and Cabernet Francs with depth and character. Each wine tells the story of its site and vintage. Cellar tastings can be booked online (reservation required), or bring a picnic and enjoy a glass outside.

WINEMAKER PROFILE

Learning, living and drinking in the culture of amazing wine while working at Norman Hardie Winery and gaining experience during harvests in South African (Bouchard Finlayson and Sumaridge) and New Zealand (Central Otago Wine Company) shaped her style. Taking on a new project, Mackenzie moved from Prince Edward County to Nanaimo, British Columbia (Chateau Wolff). Having sampled various wine regions, Mackenzie is confident that the limestone soils of PEC are where she wants to put down her roots.
