New Vintage Wine Maker's Dinner Event Marco Piccoli and Chef Ron Kneabone

Chef Ron Kneabone

Executive Chef at Terrapin Grille

Fine dining is Ron Kneabone's passion and profession. Beginning in 1987 after graduating from the Culinary Institute of Canada in Prince Edward Island Ron Kneabone travelled across the country and around the world. Ron Kneabone's inspiration and experiences are formed in part by spending over a decade in Strasbourg, France.

Ron Kneabone left the flavour paradise to return to Canada and establish a strong presence in Niagara. Starting with a popular Winery in Vineland, his work took him beyond Wine Country to the Honeymoon Capital. Ron Kneabone had full creative control taking on both administrative and kitchen duties at the Terrapin Grille Fallsview Restaurant in Niagara Falls. It is extremely rare for a chef of his calibre perform all of the work that Executive Chef Ron Kneabone does - and there are no signs that he will be stopping.

Outside the workplace Ron Kneabone has been a college instructor, womens hockey coach, and arts benefactor. His generousity and work in Niagara has made a lasting impact. In the wine community Ron Kneabone is known for being a driving force and amazing client to world-class wineries like Inniskillin.

Marco Piccoli

Winemaker at Jackson-Triggs Niagara Winery

Marco brings enviable knowledge and skills to his work at Jackson-Triggs having worked on numerous vintage over the past 10 years. He’s worked in Italy, Germany and Argentina, gaining valuable experience in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres.

Keen to learn more about new world winemaking and the unique terroir of the Niagara Peninsula, Marco accepted an internship at the Inniskillin Niagara Estate Winery and was rewarded the position of assistant winemaker at Vincor International in Niagara Falls.

In September 2005 he became a winemaker at Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate Winery where he works closely with Amy Bond, Jackson-Triggs’ Assistant Winemaker and Keith Bown, VP of Winemaking, Vincor Canada to bring Jackson-Triggs recognized style to each wine that he makes.

"Wine is alive, and expresses its unique vigour from the vine right through to our palate," Marco says, "and I enjoy infusing each grape with part of my own personality."
