Discover Prestigious & Awarding-Winning Icewines 

A bottle of Inniskillin Icewine being opened.

Inniskillin is more than just a winery; it's a legacy that started in 1975 when its founders made history by establishing Canada's first estate winery post-prohibition. The legacy of this premium, world-class Canadian wine continues, bringing passion and obsession to crafting prestigious and award-winning wines. Inniskillin’s Icewines have gained global recognition, earning the title of the #1 Icewine in the world for their outstanding quality and craftsmanship.  

Icewine is a rare and luxurious wine made from grapes naturally frozen on the vine during the harsh Canadian winter. This natural freezing concentrates the sugars and flavours in the grapes, resulting in a wine of exquisite sweetness and complexity. Here are a few Icewine recommendations to sip and gift:   

Inniskillin Vidal Icewine: Intense aromas of mango, apricot, and honey, beautifully integrated with flavours of peach and candied brown sugar, held together by crisp bold acidity. 

Inniskillin Riesling Icewine: Tropical aromas and flavours of lemon and lime. The acidity of Riesling allows for a refreshing mouthfeel amid the many layers of flavours that unfold. 

Inniskillin Cabernet Franc Icewine: Abundance of rhubarb and raspberry aromatics, complemented by flavours of cherry and strawberries and cream. A beautiful balance of richness and acidity.
