What is “ice wine”?

Ice wine is made from freezing wine grapes, and then removing excess ice. This results in a much more potent solution from which to ferment intensely sweet, acidic wines.

The term “ice wine” comes from the German expression “Eiswein”.

Mainly produced outside the United States, several Oregon wineries do produce ice wine.
