Eros, our organic ice wine!
We have spent the last twenty years creating the balanced environment and fertile soil needed to sustain organic agriculture. Here, on the final slopes of the Adirondacks, we enjoy an abundance of natural spring water and the perfect microclimate needed to grow our delicate fruit.
These conditions give us a terroir distinctly unique, we can grow organic apples to perfection here in the northeast, like no one else can!
Using only our own apples, we put over 15 different varieties into our ice wine, yielding unique tones aromas and flavours . We feel that the natural factors that influence a fine wine are most important.
Local climate, temperature, rainfall, sunlight, location of the orchard, altitude and slope, soil type, structure, composition, water retention and drainage are most crucial and have a definite influence over the wine’s flavour, which is why we never buy fruit from anyone else!

Eros is a limited production, first press fine wine. No short cuts are taken. Our perfectly grown fruits are naturally frozen to -30 c in our unique Quebec climate, where the temperature can go up and down by 25 c in a single day, giving us the perfect platform for natural cryoextraction.
Once the sun ,air ,cold and other elements have extracted most of the water from the now-frozen fruit, it is pressed whole, using presses that can put out over 5000 pounds of force to crush the rock hard fruit.
We then collect the sweet nectar and allow it to ferment naturally, without the use of yeasts or chemicals, a high -risk proposition that takes a 2 years to complete.
The entire vinification procedure is totally organic. We use nothing ti influence the wine and add no sulphates.
This is why organic wine is much better for you .not only do conventional ice wines contain a massive dose of all the concentrated pesticides that were used to grow the fruit ,there are over 40 different types of chemicals that can be used in the vinification process as well. No wonder you get a headache from drinking wine!
With great pride and joy ,we bring you Eros, elixir of the gods!
