"Warm up your Winter" according to Ice Wine Festival organizers. The main street in the Old Town will be transformed into a Jazz, Ice wine lounge, Jan 24-25 from noon-6pm. With ice furniture, sculptures and ice bar. Featuring the music of Juliette Dunn. www.niagaraicewinefestival.ca
More than twenty of Niagara's wineries will be featured in the lounge pouring tastings of Icewine and other VQA wines alongside samplings of regional cuisine from a selection of the partner restaurants of the town's Fabulicious event held every February. Taste Icewine inspired food pairings from the Charles Inn, DeLuca's Country Kitchen, the Epicurean, Hillebrand Winery Restaurant, Restaurant at the Oban Inn, Old Winery Restaurant, Pillar & Post, Prince of Wales, Queen's Landing, Riverbend Inn, Stone Road Grille, Terroir la Cachette and Zee's.
Icewine mixed with vodka will create an unconventional twist on the martini for lounge guests. These quintessential Canadian cocktails will be neither shaken nor stirred, but ‘luged' - poured through an icy chute and mixed as it winds through a metre high block of ice into waiting glasses.
Come and visit the town, stroll the street and browse through our merchants stores.
