Does the American Niagara side focus on ice wine made from riesling or vignoles or other varieites?

The Canadian stuff is also damn expensive--how much does the American version cost?

Interesting stuff!

The American side is really just making its first vintage. Both wineries I mentioned are using Vidal grapes, but I'm sure down the line Riesling, Gewurz, and even Cab Franc will be used. The Vidal I tasted was super concentrated with apricot and cotton candy aromas. I heard that the half bottles may fetch around $35-40 from the 2007 vintage.

As uncomfortable as that must have been, I am sure you will understand that I envy you greatly for that experience. I want to be able to take part in an icewine harvest before I die. That alone is worth 10 extra points on the Wine Wonk-o-meter.
