Our Vidal Blanc Ice Wine has been served at the United Nations, ordered by the White House and featured on NBC's Today. In the 1980s, Art and Joyce Hunt became the first major producers of genuine ice wine in the United States, and it remains our marquee wine today. Our specially-chosen Vidal Blanc grapes are left on the vine through the normal harvest period, allowing them to develop further complexity of flavors and sweetness. If the grapes are able to survive this period through successive cycles of frost, light freezing and Indian summer, we wait for a cold front that can deliver an extended period of 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit. At that temperature, the water molecules that make up most of the grape freeze, but the rest (which provides the flavor) does not. We hand-pick the grapes at this temperature and press them frozen to produce a trickle of golden nectar. Slow fermentation at cool temperatures yields this rare and lusciously sweet wine that bursts with honey, apricot and exotic fruit flavors. Serve well chilled on its own, or with a wide variety of desserts, as a grand finale to a fine meal. A bottle serves approximately four 3-ounce glasses.

Spectacular! The rich, complex flavors and smooth texture play wonderful games with the entire mouth. This is the wine which has brought us back to this producer time after time. It really shows off both the Finger Lakes region, and more importantly the skills of this vineyard.
