Come, celebrate the delectable harvest from Niagara’s frozen vineyards. Made in only a few areas of the world, icewine is a specialty of the Niagara region and is the sole focus of the Niagara Icewine Festival, held in mid-late January each year.
From the Niagara Icewine Gala, to wine and culinary pairings, outdoor activities along the famed Wine Route, the 23rd Niagara Icewine Festival is the perfect venue to celebrate the upcoming winter season and the incredible icewine harvest.
