About Ice wine
If you would like to learn about Ice wine, add The Ice House to your list of wineries to visit in Niagara on the Lake and taste the most exceptional style of premium Ice wine in the world. In 2005, Winemaker Jamie Macfarlane converted an abandoned 19th century peach packing barn into the winery and today, it provides an engaging Ice wine experience for visitors from all over the world who come to Niagara Falls and the Niagara Region and wish to sample and learn about this crisp premium Ice wine, called Northern Ice.
When visitors hear how this Icewine is made, and why the Niagara wine region is so exceptionally well-suited for Icewine, their interest is sparked and they give a warm reception to this cold-harvested wine.
Jamie Macfarlane, wine master, and his wife Karen King, sensory expert, have ushered in the creation of a new range of red and white Ice wines that have garnered International favour. Their desire to break out of the dessert wine category of Ice wine has led them into a new understanding of the “Art of Blending Icewine”. The key to this concept is that pure Ice wine is a concentrated wine that provides a high overall impact of flavour.
Paired with highly seasoned appetizers or tapas such as Indian and Mexican food, this elixar stands up to these intense and lasting taste experiences, creating a perfect pairing. A 3-time winner of the Monde Selection Grand Gold Medal, Northern Ice is a toasting style of Premium Ice wine on its way to being a worldwide favourite.
For the adventurous wine lover, Northern Ice provides a balanced, intense up front complex fruit flavour which can be added to a simple wine or alcohol to create amazing cocktails. If you like The Ice House Slushies, you are going to love playing winemaker with Northern Ice.
