By far the best value, and most entertaining tasting of my whole trip. Very reasonable price gets you 3 types of icewine. Straight up, and as a slushie! Really great customer service comes into play with the pairings and the history of the place. Can't recommend this enough.

I discovered this winery by accident a few years ago and love it. We were in Niagara on a recent weekend and had to stop in. Got there not long after they opened so we had the full attention of the young lady (wish I remembered her name, she was very nice and helpful). The tasting experience was great, starting... More

In an area of vineyards and wineries this is one you must NOT miss! An Ice Wine experience! Try the slushies once before you leave the area and you'll be hurrying back for more.

We recently visited Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the Lake and we went to several wineries. The Ice House was by far the best experience, the best value, the best tasting experience and the most informative tour!

We called in on the way from Niagara to Niagara on the Lake at about 11.30am, and had the tasting session with Debby. Great fun, and my wife's initial 'you can't possibly waste ice wine by putting it in slushies or adding it to white wine!' turned to 'that's delicious - how much can we get in our luggage to...

A must visit to the only winery in Ontario that specializes in ice wine, only. $15 ( 2 for 1 coupon on their website) gets you a taste of their slushies(to die for), their three ice wines and a cocktail featuring an ice wine. Very educational and delicious. Just a few miles north of Queenstown on the River Road.

With our coupon from our hotel, we had to try these ice wine slushies. Wow, what a treat! Two different ice wines in a shot glass and a straw on a warm October day. Loved it. Totally worth the brain freeze that came with it

The first visit to the Ice House was in 2011 and they had just opened to the public for tasting. I was smitten the first time and my husband and I keep coming back. Listening to my husband talking with Karen, and I was amazed that he even remembered when they took their first harvest. This makes our 3rd visit... More

This was the last, last minute wine tour we decided to do. I'm so glad we did. My only negative is that we didn't visit it first because then we'd have bought a lot more. The tasting was $20 for two couples (cheaper than the other, well known winery down the road). She brought out a few wines, explained the... More

Stopped here because of the Ice Wine Slushies, (which were fabulous) stayed because the staff was charming, knowledgeable and welcoming! Two ladies and our taste host, Dave, made us feel special and poured us delightful tastings. We even received an excellent tip on a local restaurant and Dave called and made us reservations. Cannot praise the Ice House enough! This... More
