My husband John had his birthday on Wed. April 7th. Our friends Henry and Carol had tickets to Inniskillin for free wine tasting and a free bottle of Ice wine. The wine tasting was Yummy as usual but I had never tasted Ice Wine before. We tried Vidal Ice Wine (OMGosh) how sweet it is.YUM!! Our free bottle was a 50ml. size. They could have made it a bit larger. We also learned how to drink Ice Wine. You hold your glass at the bottom of the stem of your wine glass not around the bulb of the glass. It makes a big difference on how the wine tastes. I wouldn't have believed It if I hadn't tried it myself. We also learned that if you drink red wine it should always be poured into a decanter first to get air into the wine. Just opening the bottle to let it breath doesn't cut it. Of course it had to be tried out when we got home, to go with the pizza and wings we had for supper. I did not have red wine as I would be under the table in short order. Red wine and I don't get along very well. We finished the night off by playing a game of cards called Golf then watch the results of Dancing With The Stars.
