Niagara-on-the-Lake’s historic Queen Street transforms into an enchanting winter wonderland as the town comes together to play their part in wine country’s annual celebration of Icewine. The Icewine will flow as the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake pour Niagara’s liquid gold and the renowned Signature Kitchen Chefs will tempt your palate with savoury and sweet Icewine-inspired culinary creations. When it’s time to warm up your toes pop into one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Landmark Shops. Admission to Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Icewine Village is free and samples by purchase of tokens.

Shaken, stirred, muddled and mixed. When Niagara-on-the-Lake’s mixologists include Icewine into their cocktail repertoire, exciting things happen. Only one person will take away the top honours, but we suggest you sample each cocktail and judge for yourself. This event has become a highlight of our festival— don’t miss this party! Admission to the Icewine Cocktail Competition is free, sampling by token.

January 25, 7-10 PM
Celebrate Icewine at an amazing dinner in the historic Courthouse on Queen Street. The evening will start with a sparkling wine reception in the Queen Street Icewine Village under the winter sky, followed by an outstanding meal featuring premium VQA wines and mouthwatering culinary creations from the Signature Kitchen Chefs inside the grand, century-old courthouse ballroom, and concluding with an outdoor icewine toast. This will be a night to remember, with live musical entertainment and dancing! $100/per ticket and includes wine and food. Phone 905-468-1950 for more details.
