We stopped in for a visit at the ice house winery. I am not a wine drinker but I must say this was some good stuff. My wife did the wine tasting of the slushies and gave me a sip. Well that was enough for me to give it go. The hostess asked if i liked whiskey. I concurred and she mixed a shot of their wine and a shot of whiskey...Wow! I now drink the ice wine several different ways by mixing it with whiskey and gin. Can't wait for summer to make some slushies to cool off. Very nice people there. We will stop back in next time were in town.

If you enjoy ice wine or have never tried, and want to, then this is the place to be. All they do is Ice Wine. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner who gave us a detailed and informative view of the process and then enjoyed a sample of there "Ice House Slushy". We then proceeded to do a sampling, which led to a purchase of there fine wines to bring home. If your visiting the Falls, and enjoy wine, then this winery is worth the visit.

If you like ice wine the ice house is the place to go. You have to try the slushie. I enjoy traditional ice wine and was surprised to find the icewine cabernet sauvignon was fantastic.

I have been on many brewery trips and this was only my second to a winery. The are totally different just like the drinks.
The setting for this winery is lovely and it is very well fitted out to make a tasting visit appeal to small groups and couples... it does that well.
I had heard of ice wine and as I was driving I had to miss out on the tasting and sales pitch but we bought some anyway. It's much dearer than a bottle of single malt whiskey (UK prices) but it certainly is different and very nice.
A good place to visit for an hour.... it gets 4 stars for being interesting and lovely fixtures and fittings.

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.
