|Name||Vidal Icewine Pelee Island|
Pelee Island is Canada's largest independent winery and also the largest estate vineyard covering 600 acres. Nestled in the western basin of Lake Erie, Pelee Island is Canada's Southern most inhabited tip of land. Home to over 10,000 indigenous species, Pelee Island is the environmental pride of Canada. Below the 42nd parallel, it is as far south as Rome and is Canada's warmest region with a growing season over 50 days longer than mainland Canada. No insecticides are used in the vineyards and only a 100% island grown natural fertilizer, sorghum soudan grass, is applied.
Enjoy superb tingling acidity and extraordinary length of ﬁnish of Vidal Icewine as a sipping wine or as an accompaniment to semi sweet desserts.
