Ice Wine (Vignoble Sainte-Pétronille)
Our winters may give our wine producers a hard time, but they also allow us to create our specialty: ice wine. Ice wine is a type of dessert wine produced with grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. This freezing concentrates the sugars, producing a sweet wine with a refreshing acidity. Sample this delicacy at the beautiful Vignoble Sainte-Pétronille, on Île d’Orléans, a 15-minute drive from downtown Québec City. The tasting room and terrace overlook unfurling vine hills, and there is no better setting than the Montmorency Falls for enjoying the winery’s delicious creations.
