Do you know one of the many great things that come out of the below freezing temperatures and fresh coats of snow that fall in mid-January?
Ice Wine is a type of dessert wine produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. When the frozen grapes are pressed, the smaller, more concentrated grapes make a very sweet wine. The wine is known for its extravagant sweetness and intensity. Its magical balance of acidity and sweetness gives it a texture that is surprisingly elegant and sets it apart from other dessert wines. Ice Wine production is risky and results in relatively small amounts of Ice Wine being produced world-wide.
You can find Ice Wine at vineyards along the Niagara Wine Trail, which is located just a short drive from the Red Coach Inn. The Niagara Wine Trail is the fastest growing wine trail in the country and currently hosts 16 wineries.
