Inniskillin is a Canadian winery based in the Niagara Peninsula of Ontario, specializing in ice wines made from grapes left to freeze naturally on the vine. The winery was founded in 1974 by Donald Ziraldo and Karl Kaiser, and it played a key role in establishing Canada's reputation as a producer of high-quality ice wine.
In addition to ice wines, Inniskillin produces a variety of table wines using grapes from the Niagara Peninsula and other regions of Ontario. These wines include Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Franc, among others. The winery also has a small vineyard in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, where it produces wines from grapes grown in that region.
Some of Inniskillin's most popular wines include its Vidal Icewine, which has won numerous awards and is often cited as a benchmark for Canadian ice wine, as well as its Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc table wines. The winery also produces a number of limited edition and reserve wines, which are made in smaller quantities and are typically available only to members of the winery's wine club or through select retail channels.
