Icewine Process

It all started in 1975 when Donald Ziraldo and Karl Kaiser established Innskillin Wines. They became one of the early icewine pioneers when Karl produced icewine from Vidal grapes in 1984. The process for making icewines requires freezing cold temperatures. It has to be constantly below minus eight degrees Celsius for the grapes to be harvested. Since 1984, Inniskillin has mastered the process and gone on to win several awards, both Canadian as well as international, for its iconic icewines.
