Niagara Grape & Wine Executive Director, Dorian Anderson, is quoted in a media statement.

“After having to press pause on Icewine festivities for a few years, we wanted to come back in a huge way for 2023 with a jaw-dropping new venue. The Niagara Power Station really lends itself to the type of creative expression and exploration that Icewine is all about. Our guests won’t just get to explore Icewine and local foods in unique and unexpected ways, hosting Cool as Ice at the Niagara Power Station will allow our guests to explore and enjoy Niagara Falls in incredible new ways as well.”
