ICE WINE MARTINIS – The Most Elegant New Year’s Cocktail

FIRST, what’s so special about ice wine?

Ice wine in 26 seconds:

  • Canada did not invent ice wine, but they sure have perfected it, and turned it into a country icon akin to maple syrup, hockey, and Tim Horton’s coffee.
  • The difference between ice wine, late harvest and select late harvest is the sugar level. Ice wine has the highest sugar level on the sweet scale.
  • Icewine law states that the temperature must drop to -8C for optimal picking.
  • Icewine is the sweet concentrated nectar of the ‘iced’ grapes, left on the vine until the juice is concentrated to its ideal level.
  • Canada’s Niagara-on-the-Lake is the main hub and biggest producer of ice wine, hosting the Ice Wine Festival annually.

READ GEORGIA and MATT’S STORY

Travel to the historically breathtaking Niagara-on-the-Lake and fall in love

CAUGHT!
Matt was the one man Georgia could not forget even though she made sure she would never see him again after their scandalous night together eight years ago.

So, when he walks into the Niagara-on-the-Lake bistro one snowy holiday evening, she is horrified and looks for the first place to hide. 

Matt is still the devastatingly handsome, suave and sophisticated man her heart remembers and trusted so dearly years ago. Only this time she finds out he’s a king in his own country; a detail that went unmentioned during their brief time together. 

Now, Georgia has a secret of her own. Their beautiful moment together produced this new king an heir!

AUTHOR NOTE:  This is a sweet romance
