The story of wine at Icicle Ridge Winery started in the Fall of 2000 when we made our first wines… twenty gallons were made in two very small oak barrels. With the generous help of several local friends, we began crafting our first Romanze Blend, an unusual blend of Merlot, Lemberger, and Cabernet Franc. That label has become the hallmark of our red wine releases and is highly anticipated by our friends and wine club members. While some of the varietals have changed over the years, the dedication to quality winemaking and staying unique remain the same.
Since that time, we have focused on several red varietals and always emphasize an approach to red wine which is rooted in drinkability. Careful management of our new and old oak barrel program provides the perfect character to our red wine releases with just the right amount of oak to enhance the flavor while leaving the fruit in dominance on the palate. We couldn’t be any prouder than we are of our current releases of our red wines.
And that’s just the story about our red wines. We have award winning white wines that hit just about everyone’s palates. From dry, off-dry, and hints of sweetness, we are certain you will find one that will fit your lifestyle. And for the many who have already discovered our FRUIT WINE, you know what we mean when we say…” Get it now, ‘cuz it won’t be on our shelf the next time you are here!”
