Bruce Nicholson from Inniskillin

Bruce Nicholson is Inniskillin’s award winning Senior Winemaker in Ontario. A Niagara native, Nicholson ended-up spending the bulk of his career in BC, making wine at Jackson-Triggs in the Okanagan. He returned to Ontario to take up the wine making legacy begun by Karl Kaiser at Inniskillin to rave reviews.

With the recent release of Inniskillin wines, including the 2011 Pinot Gris that Jamie Drummond singled out as excellent (see his notes here), I caught up with Nicholson via Skype in his winery office. I recorded the call to make the video below, in which I ask Nicholson about his job, the range of Inniskillin wines and the differences between wine making in BC and Ontario. It’s a little rough. Apologies: we’re learning as we go with some new software.
