Canadians didn’t invent icewine… but we did perfect it | We Are The Best

Although Canada didn’t invent icewine, the country has certainly mastered the craft of making it. Canada produces over a million litres of ice wine every year, one quarter of which is exported around the world.

For Inniskillin winemaker Bruce Nicholson, each year is filled with harvesting, pressing and distilling orchards of grapes into one of Canada’s sweetest exports.

Inniskillin produces about 200,000 litres of icewine every year, exporting two-thirds of their product to over 86 countries around the world. They’ve attracted international acclaim, even winning the prestigious Grand Prix d’Honneur at France’s , Vinexpo in 1991.
