Ice wine is a special variety of wine that is also known as a dessert wine. It is very sweet and is made from pure grape juice, but it differs from regular grape juice in that it is squeezed from frozen grapes which extracts an even sweeter juice with a higher concentration of sugar. Click below to see what we have to offer.
The accidental discovery of Ice wine dates back to the last part of 1700 in Germany. Due to a cool summer and unexceptionally cold winter, wine producers created Ice wine by pressing juice from frozen grapes. The result was quite impressive. The first Canadian Ice wine was produced in the 1970’s. A combination of pioneer spirit, high quality, strict selection of the grapes and human skills has now ensured Canada Ice wine a place on the world wine scene.
