About the Winery
Icellars Estate Winery is a boutique winery located in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake. It was founded in 2010 by the ICEL family. Small batch wines are produced from the farm and inspired by classic winemaking styles deeply rooted in the history of viticulture and winemaking.
The 60-acre fallow land was carefully selected by owners Adnan and Elif ICEL based on precise research of ideal growing conditions for premium vinifera varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The winery uses estate grown fruit from their hand-manicured vines.
Total yearly production is currently around 4,000 cases with plans to increase slowly with new plantings. The vineyard has a very warm microclimate suitable for big reds and Chardonnay. Chardonnay is the only white grape planted on the estate. The winery is focused on high-end wines with 100% of the wines are aged in French oak barrels from 12 months to 24 months. The winery building is designed to be zero carbon footprint with gravity flow winemaking. To learn more visit https://www.icellars.ca/.
