5 Star Winery Reviews for The Ice House Winery

 

“Loved it here!”

When our plan to ride the Whirlpool Aero Car got cancelled due to high winds, we needed something else to do. I knew about the Ice Wines in the area, but had never tried them before. We just happened upon The Ice House on our way around the Niagara On The Lake area. The place from the outside is not inviting like many other wineries, but don't let that stop you. I loved the original look on the inside and quickly made our way over to the wine tasting area. We tasted all 5 wine options (including a Riesling) and I think I might have overused the word "Yum" during the tasting. The Cabernet Slushie was one of my favorites and I can't wait to make it at home! My husband and I splurged and bought one of their 5 wine packages (this is EXPENSIVE wine), but I do not regret it for a minute! We were given a lot of great educational knowledge on how the ice wines are made (lending to the understanding of why these are so expensive) and we were also told several recipes. I Highly recommend this winery!

“Delightful Experience”

We stopped by The Ice House and sampled their delicious ice wine. We really enjoyed our time there. I am not a drinker, but their ice wine was superb. They are very friendly and helpful and guided us to a delicious restaurant in the area. Would highly recommend a stop by their winery!

“Best Little Ice Wine in Canada”

I'm going to keep this simple. Best Ice Wine Anywhere! We were lucky enough to be really treated to a tasting extravaganza by one of the owners, Karen, She expertly explained the Ice Wine making process. She explained the nuances in tasting the ice wine. They provided amazing charts about the tasting experience. When you go, have the chart in front of you. It was crazy how you could taste the different flavors, in order, just like the chart says. A pricey experience, but worth every penny. If you are in the Niagara Fall or Niagara-on-the-lake area, you have to make this place a Must-Do.

Canada is the world's largest producer of ice wine (or Icewine as it describes it in Canada) due to their stable cold winters. Ice wine is a wine made ​​from grapes harvested and pressed while frozen, -8 degrees when it is manufactured in Canada. Ice wine is a sweet dessert with a high acid content, which means that despite a high sugar content, the taste fresh and not too sweet. The harvest is very labor intensive and the amount of harvested often small, which makes isviner is relatively expensive.

The Germans were the first production of ice wine, already in 1794, they came up with the idea.

Caroline has selected Niagara-on-the-Lakes winery for ice wine (where the vineyards succeed each other over a long distance) and the award-winning The Ice House Winery is one of our goals for the day. In addition to the manufacturing excellent ice wine, they are also the only winery exclusively produces ice wine, or "Canadian liquid gold" as it is sometimes called.

Vinmästaren Jamie Macfarlane and his wife  Karen King, along with his staff taking to effect development of ice wine to a higher level. By devoting 100% of his time and with an innovative mindset, creating the ice wine with the highest quality. Macfarlane says that ice wine is like classical music - complex, intense, harmonious and balanced. With such a mindset, one can not fail, it breathes perfection to his fingertips and their ice wine is very tasty.

The Ice House Winery has won several major awards, and you happen to pass by, do not miss their refreshing and cool The Ice House N'Ice Slushie which is a big favorite.

We have the privilege to test their ice wine served by very knowledgeable and pleasant Sarah, who tells about the different flavors and allows us to test the ice wine both pure and mixed with "ordinary" wine in a very good cocktail.  The latter is the favorite for the day!

The ambiance is fantastic! In the old barn there is yeast tanks and isvinet made while you stroll around in the cozy shop and tastes of perhaps the world's best ice wine. I can certainly recommend a visit if you are near Toronto or Niagara.

The address of The Ice House Winery is  14774 Niagara Parkway,  Niagara-On-The-Lake, ON,  Canada L0S 1J0
