Roll out the barrels at the Niagara Icewine Festival
January 14, 20120
Winter arrived in Niagara only a couple of days ago but it was sweet news for organizers of the Niagara Icewine Festival that kicked off this weekend.
Under sunny skies and chilly (but comfortable) temperatures and a light dusting of fresh snow, the main event of the first of three icewine weekends in Niagara featured all kinds of wine, icewine-inspired food, music and even barrel racing down the main street of Jordan that has been transformed into a tent city of wine and food goodness for the weekend.
It was all in good fun as locals and visitors crammed into the main square in Jordan to enjoy food, wine and the great Canadian winter. Here are some photos from Saturday’s first day of the Twenty Valley Winter Winefest that continues for the next two weekends in Niagara-on-the-Lake, St. Catharines and at most wineries in Niagara.
