Inniskillin Icewines at Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games

With vineyards in the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario and the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Inniskillin Wines is Canada's premier estate winery producing truly distinctive and elegant wines from premium grape varieties grown in Canada.

Proud to be an Official Wine Supplier for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics and Paralympic Winter Games, Inniskillin Wines will present ICE GATE in the Richmond O Zone, an official celebration site for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.  ICE GATE is a monumental art installation created by Canadian artist Gord Halloran; using ice as his canvas, Halloran created a massive and boldly coloured painting whose colours will fluctuate with the changing temperatures.

ICE GATE is a fitting affiliation for Inniskillin Wines as there is a joint appreciate for ice crystals, present in both this work of art and in Icewine.  Inniskillin Icewine, enjoyed by wine lovers in 69 countries around the world, is a perfect icon to connect to Canada.  Inniskillin Icewine was selected by Oprah Winfrey’s ‘O’ magazine as a Valentine’s Day suggestion, and it was served to accompany the dessert course at the Nobel Prize dinner at which President Obama received his Peace Prize in December 2009.  These are testaments to the global prominence that Inniskillin Icewine holds.

Located across from ICE GATE, Inniskillin Wines has erected a 60 foot tasting bar, the Icewine Gallery, where wine lovers can sample Icewine and enjoy a wintery VIP lounge area.  Screens will play videos showing the magic of crafting Icewine and samples of Inniskillin Vidal Icewine Commemorative Edition from Niagara, Inniskillin Vidal from Niagara, and Inniskillin Okanagan Riesling Icewine will be available.

Open from February 12-28, 2010, the Icewine Gallery hours of operation are 3:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 12:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.  Costs are $5 for a half ounce sample, or $10 for three half ounce tastes.
