Hi Scoober ♥
I'm back ... here is the info ...
Icewine is a very sweet dessert wine. It's produced from (Reisling and Vidal in Canada) grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. With icewine, the freezing happens before the fermentation not afterwards. It is a very risky production and requires the whole crop to be picked within a few hours at a moments notice. This results in small amounts of icewine (eiswein - German) being made world-wide, making it quite expensive. The cellar workers must work late at night or early morning in the cold never a heated room. Canada ( Ontario) and Germany are the largest producers. We have it up here in our area too. We also have a lot of wineries up here. Natural icewines require a hard freeze. If that doesn't happen, the crop is lost. Wines labeled ice wine or late harvest are not icewine. To be called icewine you must follow the regulations and are inspected during the harvest. The bottle size is half bottle or smaller and start at $50 a bottle. Chateau Chantel will sell this crop next fall at $70 (half wine bottle size). I hope this was interesting. It's another thing that is an up north item that we are used to.

We can share a bottle and sit on your porch. Mom won't mind if I take a bottle. She was upset with dad who took her most pricey bottle to have guests try it. He poured glasses and they didn't like it and tossed it in the sink. He should have just given them a taste to see if they liked it ...GRRRRR!
