Ice House (The)
This 12-hectare vineyard, planted along the Niagara Parkway, has had one purpose since 2005: to create the best and most innovative Icewine for the world. Founder and winemaker Jamie Macfarlane is right on track with the international success of Northern Ice: a trio of “toasting style” Icewines - Cabernet Sauvignon, Vidal and Vintner’s Reserve - each a Grand Gold winner at Europe’s Monde Selection competition. The winery, a refurbished 18th-century peach barn, welcomes visitors for year-round tours, tastings and Jamie’s newest Icewine innovations, including Icewine Slushies and Icewine Spirit. Group tours and corporate functions for up to 50 visitors are welcome, complete with seminars with Jamie, the world’s most experienced Icewine maker.
