Did you know there are 3 BIG wine references throughout all of the Star Wars movies? From rolling hills like Northern Italy to the big robust wines from the South of France, if you love wine and Star Wars this is a must read article.
Icewine really is Canada’s gift to the world of wine. This sweet and delicious wine is created when grapes freeze on the vine and then are pressed. It takes a hearty grape to withstand our cold Canadian winters (and patient winemakers to see through the weather), but sipping and sharing it is worth all the effort. In fact, you only get one drop of luxurious juice per grape, now just imagine how many grapes it takes to make one bottle of Icewine? That should help explain the price of it too! Icewine can be made from grapes like Vidal, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonny and even Shiraz. It’s a wonderful treat to open and share with friends and family and don’t worry if you don’t finish off a bottle, I have some tricks on ways to reduce, reuse and recycle this magical and delicious juice.
Here are some easy ways to enjoy Icewine all year round.
