Why We Love Niagara's Icewine FestivalBy Robert Hickey | December 19, 2013 By Robert Hickey | December 19, 2013
The annual celebration of all things icewine returns to Niagara in January with two full weeks of food and drink programming.
The Icewine harvest season varies from year to year as growers are dependent on Mother Nature; Niagara producers took to social media last week to announce an early start to grape picking and pressing this year, with temperatures dipping below minus 8˚ Celsius. Harvest signals the return of the Niagara Icewine Festival: an annual celebration in January that turns the region into a wintery wonderland of incredible wine and food experiences.
Here are the top five must-check-out events;
