This winery produces ice wine, something that is wonderful. The cellar is beautifully furnished and a very pleasant place to be, especially in mid-winter when we visited. The staff carefully explained the production of ice wine and provided some tastings including some ice wine. Beware, the production process means the wine is not cheap. We would have purchased a bottle... More

Ice House Winery has a unique niche with ice wine, a great atmosphere, and a fun and informative staff! Making only Ice wine is a risk, but this winery does it well and the staff member who poured us our tastings was so passionate about the winery and took his time to explain the nuances of the different ice wines!...

By far the best value, and most entertaining tasting of my whole trip. Very reasonable price gets you 3 types of icewine. Straight up, and as a slushie! Really great customer service comes into play with the pairings and the history of the place. Can't recommend this enough.

I discovered this winery by accident a few years ago and love it. We were in Niagara on a recent weekend and had to stop in. Got there not long after they opened so we had the full attention of the young lady (wish I remembered her name, she was very nice and helpful). The tasting experience was great, starting... More

In an area of vineyards and wineries this is one you must NOT miss! An Ice Wine experience! Try the slushies once before you leave the area and you'll be hurrying back for more.

We called in on the way from Niagara to Niagara on the Lake at about 11.30am, and had the tasting session with Debby. Great fun, and my wife's initial 'you can't possibly waste ice wine by putting it in slushies or adding it to white wine!' turned to 'that's delicious - how much can we get in our luggage to...

A must visit to the only winery in Ontario that specializes in ice wine, only. $15 ( 2 for 1 coupon on their website) gets you a taste of their slushies(to die for), their three ice wines and a cocktail featuring an ice wine. Very educational and delicious. Just a few miles north of Queenstown on the River Road.

With our coupon from our hotel, we had to try these ice wine slushies. Wow, what a treat! Two different ice wines in a shot glass and a straw on a warm October day. Loved it. Totally worth the brain freeze that came with it
