There is a new reason to venture out on a chilly January weekend this year, 29 reasons, in fact. Visitors to the NEW Winter WineFest will be able to sample over 50 wines from 29 area wineries, and this year Icewine will share centre stage with some of Ontario’s best sparkling and premium VQA wines.
The not just Icewine festival which will be hosted in Jordan Village January 16 and 17th will allow wine enthusiasts to sip and savour from a list of specialty and reserve wines not offered at any other wine festival.
The shift away from the traditional Icewine Festival was one of the first changes implemented by the Twenty Valley Tourism Association when they took over the management of the event this November. The Jordan Ice Bar has been very successful, but we wanted to create something that is distinctly Twenty Valley an event that better showcases the variety of premium wines available here, says Dori Andrewes, Event Manager for the Twenty Valley Tourism Association. Many of our most celebrated and popular wineries don’t offer Icewine and were not able to be a part of past events. It makes sense to put our best wines on display, and to highlight the range of talent in Twenty Valley.
