Ice-tini Recipe

While we prefer icewine straight and unmixed as a dessert, we’ve seen many icewine dessert cocktail recipes. This one is still our customer’s all time favourites:

1 ½ oz Erie Shore Vineyard Vidal Icewine

1 ½ oz Vodka

Pour ingredients into an ice filled cocktail shaker and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with cranberries for the Holidays, or seasonal fruit & berries through the summer and fall.

Wine of the Month!!

We are thrilled to be the August 2010 Wine of the Month as chosen by Essex Wine Review!  Our Sellar Secret 2007 is the newest wine in our spotlight.
"Erie Shore vineyard is located in the heart of Essex County's cottage country and it is no surprise that local cottage residents have discoverd this wine to sip on while at their weekend home.  It is so popular that the vineyard can't keep it in stock.  On two recent visits to the winery I tried to buy more of this wine only to be told that it was temporarily sold out.
One sip and you will see why it is so popular.  It's tropical, refreshing and a perfect match for a hot summer day in August.  It's only available at the winery, so if you see it on the shelf, BUY IT before someone else does.  It won't last long."
We are pleased to once again have it on our shelves!!
