Most of the grapes still gripping to the vines in Nagara-on-the-Lake are just for the show - the harvesting happened in mid-December before the recent deep freeze.
Winemakers told the CBC's Debbie Lightle-Quan that the yield this year was a little less than average, but the quality looks good.
"We've had so many opportunities to pick these grapes," said Bruce Nicholson, a winemaker with Inniskillin. "We get that minus eight minimum that we want and as you know we've had a lot of cold temperatures."
The majority of the ice wine made in the region is shipped overseas to places like China where it is considered a delicacy.
Niagara winemakers will begin to bottle the harvest sometime in early spring.
