They have also received acclaim for their icewines The Wine Current wrote
Owners Harvey and Alma Hollingshead use only their own grapes to make a range of well-priced wines, and their
Vidal Icewine 1999 - VQA
shows what they can do . It has the typical icewine flavours (tropical, mango, peach, apricot) with honey notes, and it has a spine of clean acidity that cuts through the natural sweetness very effectively.
Great wines do not happen by accident. Serious winemaking starts in the vineyard. It continues through harvest, fermentation and cellaring, All practices whether in the vineyard or the winery are focused on one solitary goal- the best possible wine achievable
