Niagara Icewine Festival

The Niagara icewine Festival is happening very soon. A true Icewine can only be made from grapes that have naturally frozen on the vine -hand-picked when the thermometer dips to -8° C or lower. Often this is done at night as timing is crucial.

The festival, with live music (Whitehorse YAY!), food and of course wine will be held in Jordan Village next weekend. Our gallery (The Jordan Art Gallery) is in the village right beside Cave Spring cellars. Come in and warm up-I will also have a few available Niagara Vineyard paintings on display including this one.

I finally took the time to photograph the whole of this painting-(rather than the snippets I've been sharing). I'm happy with it as it seems to culminate my time in Shetland.

Pending funding I have been invited back to Shetland for another residency-more to follow.
