Icewine Harvest Returns to BC

January 22, 2013

After last vintage's second-earliest start on record on Nov. 19 and 20, 2011, the majority of the Icewine harvest in the Okanagan was on Jan. 11 and 12, 2013. Harvested at minus 8┬░Celsius or below, the wine made from these frozen grapes must reach quality standards including 35 Brix of sugar to be called true Icewine.
