Ice Wine Trail 2021

Ice Wine Trail

The cold of Northeast Ohio brings out the sweet nectar frozen on the vines in snow laden vineyards located south of Lake Erie.  This creates a microclimate that allows Ohio winemakers to grow grapes and make exceptional ice wines.

Ice Wine harvest is typically done in the early morning hours when temperatures dip well below freezing.  The natural water content that is found in the grapes needs to be frozen when harvested.  This results in a concentrated thick extraction of juice which in turn is used for Ice Wine.  Typically, the brix level is between 37-40 brix which is ideal for producing this decadent dessert wine.

Ice Wine varietals in the Grand River Valley region include Vidal Blanc, Concord, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay. Each varietal has its own set of unique characteristics that are sure to be palate pleasing. Flavors of sweet peach, apricot, honey, cherry, and citrus can be found in these delicious Ice Wines.  Pair any of these dessert wines with pungent cheeses like gorgonzola and goat cheese or go sweet and enjoy with chocolate hazelnut spread or white chocolates. The possibilities are endless!

The winegrowers of the Grand River Valley encourage you to come sample the finest Ice Wines in the valley!
