Ice wine: delicate, complex, and rare. Let it be the star of your dessert course! (Monthly Recipe: January 2015) It was ten below zero, yes Fahrenheit, this morning in western New York. Perfect weather for harvesting ice wine grapes, because they would be solidly frozen. To celebrate Lake Erie Wine Country's First Ice Wine Festival, "Frozen: Savor the Lake Effects", this month's recipes are dedicated to ice wines. Here are some of the staff's recommendations and recipes.
