This was the last, last minute wine tour we decided to do. I'm so glad we did. My only negative is that we didn't visit it first because then we'd have bought a lot more. The tasting was $20 for two couples (cheaper than the...More

Yes... The Icewine slushy was very appealing and delicious actually, but the winery wasn't quite aesthetically pleasing from the outside. Didn't seem as appealing as the others we had passed. It didn't have that "oooo la la" factor. But it specialized in Icewine, so if...More

Thanks for taking the time to write about The Ice House Winery. Its true, our winery is a refurbished peach packing barn from 1890's, and is not fancy, but we are happy you found our Slushie to be delicious!
