I had the great opportunity of having Sandra on my side to get me introduce to the exquisite world of Ice Wine. She was extraordinarily knowledgeable with a top-notch passion for providing the best customer experience.

What You'll Get


Identifying different flavour notes in wine is a mark of refinement, like discerning the pedigree of a horse by its taste in jazz. Sip on singular vintages with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $10 for a wine tour and tasting for two (a $20 value)
  • $19 for a wine tour and tasting for four (a $40 value)

Guests explore the winery's fields and vines before heading into the tasting bar for a sample of three premium icewines with a food pairing, a N'icewine slushy for two, and a lesson on the art of blending icewine. Tours run daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. through the end of August; starting September 1, tours run daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Ice House Winery

Though most people may picture winemakers among sunny coastal knolls, Jamie Macfarlane can often be found staying up late each December, waiting for the thermometer to hit -8 degrees Celsius. It's at that point—frigid, quiet, dark—that Jamie knows his vidal grapes are ready for harvest. Left to freeze, thaw, and freeze again, the grapes have already matured throughout the season, allowing the robust notes of apricot, peach, butterscotch, and honey to develop under the outer layer of stone-cold skin.

Once the mercury hits -8 degrees, Jamie and his team head out to the vines to handpick the grapes while they're still frozen. They rush them to the winery, press them through the night, and transfer the concentrated must to the fermenting tanks before the sun rises and demands its keg of morning coffee. The Ice House Winery grows vidal, cabernet, and riesling varietals. In the tasting bar at The Ice House Winery, visitors can peer at these batches-in-progress as they lean on a rough-cut support beam or barrel table, listening to Jamie spin yarns about the days when his grapes were still young and in diapers.
