MADISON, Ohio — Get your glasses prepared. Tis’ the season for ice wine.
On Sunday morning, Grand River Cellars in Geneva started choosing grapes to make their candy drink, and 3News Meteorologist Matt Standridge was on scene to point out you the way it’s accomplished.
Every year, the winery waits till the coldest nights of the 12 months to select the grapes at their sweetest, roughly when temperatures dip beneath 18 levels Fahrenheit for six or extra hours.
As a result of nature of the drink, climate performs a giant function in getting the right crop for ice wine. Only some areas on this planet can efficiently make ice wine.
The water contained in the grape freezes, however the sugar stays, permitting the grape juice to develop into much more concentrated. That is when the grapes are picked by hand.
After the grapes are pulled from the winery, urgent begins.
It appears easy, however that is what makes it nice.
