Producer

Inniskillin is a Canadian winery located in Niagara on the Lake in Ontario and is noted for its production of top quality Icewine. It was founded in 1975 by Austrian chemist Karl Kaiser and Italian-Canadian agriculture graduate Donald Ziraldo, who worked tirelessly to introduce better vines and improved winemaking techniques to Niagara, and, who making the most of the extreme Canadian winter, produced their first Icewine in 1984. Their vineyards surround the winery on the Brae Burn Estate and are planted with Riesling and Vidal grapes. The mineral rich soils, warm summers and cold winters offer the perfect climatic conditions for the production of premium Icewine. Inniskillin harvest their grapes at a higher brix level than the usual minimum set by the VQA and their wines have a higher level of residual sugar – this gives their wines a richer, more intense flavour and means they merit a higher price.

Region

The southern parts of British Columbia and Ontario are Canada’s two main wine growing regions. Ontario is made up of four main sub regions, with a range of aromatic white grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer taking the majority of vines. The harsh winters can cause problems for wine producers; however Ice-Wine is produced in almost every region of Canada and these freezing temperatures are essential for its production. If you are interested in tasting a top quality Canadian Ice-Wine, we would suggest you go for our 2012 Inniskillin Riesling Ice-Wine.
