Ferrante's Ice Wine Grapes

Ice Wine grapes hang until late December or early January. We are waiting until we receive 3 consecutive days of 17 degrees Fahrenheit or below temperatures.  This is crucial to the ice wine making process. Note: Generally, grapes contain a higher amount of water than sugars, so once the temperature drops below freezing point the water in the grapes becomes frozen.  This allows the sugar to become concentrated and when pressed is pure flavor and natural sugars.  The amount an ice wine grape gives off is approximately 1/5 of the juice you would normally maintain from an unfrozen grape.

The grapes will get picked, then pressed, then fermented, filtered, and bottled.  This process needs to be monitored closely in order to insure that nothing is lost in the Ice Wine making process.
