Join us Jan 22nd for The Wine Lades Shimmer of Gold Icewine Tour taking place during the annual Niagara Icewine Festival.Sure to be a stupendous day, a wintry wonderland awaits you, come and celebrate Icewine and winter, with us, at the annual Niagara Icewine Festival. We’ll visit three personally selected wineries where our small group will enjoy a unique VIP wine experience just for us. In between visits, we’ll spend a little time in the village, with the festival offering up fabulous wines, superb foods, and lots of shopping and entertainment. The ice sculptures and roasting marshmallows are always a hit too!
Our first stop will be Inniskillin www.inniskillin.com Inniskillin often referred to as the birthplace of the “modern Canadian winery”. It was the first winery to receive a winery license (1975) in Ontario since prohibition. Also in 1984, founders Karl Kaiser and Donald Ziraldo made the most of the extreme Canadian winter to produce the first Icewine, a pivotal point for Inniskillin and the Canadian wine industry. The world began to take notice. The turning point for Canadian Wine had also arrived where in 1991 Inniskillin’s Vidal Icewine won a Grand Prix d’Honneur at Vinexpo in Bordeaux. Now almost every winery makes Icewine – the best of astounding luscious freshness.”!
Our special experience at Inniskillin:
Extreme winemaking in extreme Canadian winters-experience three styles of Vidal Icewine along with tasting the Vidal grape from the Inniskillin Icewine Vineyards. Discover the difference a glass makes with a comparison using the Riedel Vinum Extreme Icewine Glass- a collaboration inspired by Inniskillin! Enjoy with the pairing of an unique dried fruit bread!
