Our farms are located on the floor of what once was called Glacial Lake Iroquois in the Niagara Region of Ontario Canada. Some 12,000 years ago our land was covered in over 300 ft. of ice. The uncovered land is some of the most nutrient rich soil in the world, land that at one time sustained Glacial Ice, now sustains some of the best icewines in the world.

Our icewine production is completely hands on, we are actively involved in the complete process, from planting the vineyards , to working the fields and pressing the grapes, to vinifying the juice, our wines are truly hand built. It is our goal to continually provide ultra-premium icewines, grown in ultra-premium soil in an ultra-premium location for the consumer who appreciates the finer things in life.

Our first vintage is a 2010 Cabernet Franc icewine; it is a $225.00 bottle of wine per 375 ml bottle, we have a limited supply of 1500 cases.

In 2011 we plan on producing the same amount of Cabernet Franc Icewine as well as a few hundred cases of Vidal Icewine, by 2012 we will have added Guertztraminer, Cabernet Sauvignon , Gamay and Merlot to our list of ultra premium Icewines, in 2013 we plan on producing and adding limited quantities of Sauvignon Blanc, Reisling as well as Chardonnay Icewine to our product line.

We have the capacity to produce up to 20,000 cases per year when we are fully operational, with a selection of at least 9 unique varieties divided into 2 groups, Red Ice and White Ice, ranging from $225.00 to $40,000.00 + per bottle.

The Reason our wines are so full of flavour

Glacial Lake Iroquois was a prehistoric proglacial lake that existed at the end of the last ice age approximately 13,000 years ago. The lake was essentially an enlargement of the present Lake Ontario that formed because the St. Lawrence River downstream from the lake was blocked by the ice sheet near the present Thousand Islands. The level of the lake was approximately 30 m (~100 ft) above the present level of Lake Ontario.

The lake drained to the southeast, through a channel passing near present day Rome, New York. The Rome Sand Plains has several sand ridges that geologists think were formed at this time. The channel then followed the valley of the Mohawk River to the Hudson River.

The lake was fed by Early Lake Erie, as well as Glacial Lake Algonquin, an early partial manifestation of Lake Huron, that drained directly to Lake Iroquois across southern Ontario, along the southern edge of the ice sheet, bypassing Early Lake Erie.

The subsequent melting of the ice dam resulted in a sudden lowering of the lake to its present level, a potential trigger for the Younger Dryas episode.
