Winter in Niagara might mean a drop in temperature but it also means one of the most delicious festivals has arrived – the Niagara Icewine Festival.
From January 10 – 26 Niagara is taken over by the sweet decadence of icewine. The festival involves dozens of wineries, several community partners and thousands of revelers taking in the many events that pop up throughout the region.
Below is a list of just some of the events taking place during the Niagara Icewine Festival.
Flash & Panache: Icewine Cocktail Competition: You can’t miss one of the festival’s “coolest” events! The Niagara-on-the-Lake heritage district becomes centre stage for cocktail mixologists who combine icewine with many different flavours and mixes to find out who is king of the icewine cocktail.
Niagara-on-the-Lake Icewine Village: Experience 27 different wineries in the winter wonderland that is the Icewine Village. Found in downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake, visit the wineries serving up not just glorious glasses of icewine, but expertly crafted meals designed to pair with each of the different varietals.
Sparkle and Ice: The century-old courthouse ballroom in downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake plays host to this evening dining event that will feature Signature Kitchen Chefs and personal ice glasses in addition to the star of the show – Niagara’s icewine.
This is just a small sample of the events happening during the festival; to truly see it all you have to join in on the fun for yourself!
