THE UNION PARTNERSHIP

Union wines is the result of a joint partnership between winemaking legend Dr. Allan Jackson and sommelier, Andrew von Teichman. The union of their VQA experiences lead to a brand that is sophisticated but unpretentious. Their vision and passion for the future of Ontario winemaking rests in the art of blending multiple grape varieties to create consistent, reliable, award winning wines.

ALLAN JACKSON

As a founder of Vincor Canada, and the Jackson Triggs brand, Allan needs no introduction. He is considered one of this countries great winemaking legends, decorated for winemaking achievements from coast to coast.

ANDREW VON TEICHMAN

Similarly, Andrew’s background in wine began at Canada’s largest estate VQA winery, Pelee Island, where he started working in the family business in 1993 as a cellar hand. After 10 years at Pelee Island, followed by over three years at Vincor, Andrew followed his entrepreneurial passion by partnering with Allan in the fall of 2009.

Launched in September of 2010, Union has become one of the top selling craft VQA brands at the LCBO, and has become a favourite wine choice of consumers and the press. As an LCBO wine buyer put it: “Union is just simply fabulous. There’s no other way to describe these fantastic blends. Wines this rich and complex often cost over $40 or more. Winemaker Allan Jackson has created another winner. Yum.”
