“Liquid Gold” Ontario is the world’s major producer of Icewine due optimum

weather conditions that require hot summers and cold and sharp wintersImage

2. Guided Wine Tour. Where you learn that in order to make Icewine

grapes must be natural frozen at the temperature of – 8°C (18°F)

Image

3. Oak. Provides a total aromatic experience of the wine a.k.a “bouquet”

Image

4. Award Winning Wines. At the end of every tour, you have the option to

purchase the wineries’ best harvest

Image

5. Niagara on the Lake is home of most of the 135 Vintners Quality Alliance

(VQA) in Ontario

Image

6. One Million is the estimated number of visitors to wineries per year

Image

7. The “classic” pairing. Cheese and Wine

Image

8. The “non-classic” pairing. Icewine and Hot Sauce. It is actually very good

Image

9. Wine Connoisseur. After a couple of hours, you become more analytical

and identify the nuances between: colour, bouquet and taste.

Peace,
