Cabernet has acclimatized extremely well to the Niagara Peninsula so it is a good candidate to make into Icewine. We tend these blocks of Cabernet like the others carefully managing the yields and of course keeping the bunches clean by removing any berries at the first signs of breakdown. Then we wait. And in late January, when the temperature dropped to -13ºC we hand-harvested the bunches by the light of the moon.

The impressive entrance to Château des Charmes Winery (pictured below) with the formal gardens and the classic façade are reminiscent of an ancient French estate. Hardly surprising, as Château des Charmes has a long history of winemaking, dating back seven generations to Alsace.
Founded by industry visionary Paul Bosc, this family estate winery is set among 35-hectares of pristine vines in the St. David’s Bench. By the early 1970s, Paul was crafting Ontario wines that surprised many in the wine world. In 1978, he established Château des Charmes as a 60-acre estate winery and planted the first commercial Canadian vineyard growing only vitis vinifera grapes….this is truly Canadian wine history in the making.
