No, you don't consume ice wine on a stick like a Popsicle. This special beverage is made from grapes that are allowed to get very ripe and then freeze on the vine. The grapes are harvested and pressed while frozen. (The water in the grapes does not pass through the press but stays behind in the form of ice pellets.) The result is a superconcentrated and extremely sweet delight. Ice wine makes a delicious treat all by itself or can be paired with decadent treats.
If you visit the charming Finger Lakes region of New York state, be sure to visit the Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars, one of the most beautiful tasting rooms beside Seneca Lake. Don't miss the wondrously bright late-harvest Riesling and Vidal ice wines. You'll find they taste even better when you're beneath a soaring ceiling with wood beams and surrounded by stunning views.
