2024 NYS Ice Wine & Culinary Festival
March 2 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Taste the Best Ice Wines in New York State
Join us for the annual NYS Ice Wine & Culinary Festival - the largest celebration of traditional Ice Wines made in NYS. Authentic Ice Wines are a challenge to produce and are therefore rare and special. To qualify as a true ice wine, the wines must be produced from grapes that have been frozen on the vine. The frozen grapes must be picked and pressed within hours of the first sustained freeze. Because of this labor-intensive and weather-dependent process, very few wineries even attempt to make ice wine. New York is also one of the very few places in the world that has the climate to support traditional ice wine production, thus producing a rich, sweet and smooth wine.
Fill your commemorative glass with additional samples from Casa Larga and visiting NYS producers. The celebrations continue with winter activities, vineyard rides, an ice lounge with celebrity bartenders, bespoke vendors for shopping, photo opportunities and more.
