    A gorgeous collection, with full-colour photography and delicious recipes
that explains the art behind Canada's wine delicacy.

    Icewine: Extreme Winemaking by Inniskillin Wines co-founders Donald
Ziraldo and Karl Kaiser is a beautifully illustrated book that reveals the
painstaking methods and skills used to create one of Canada's most desired
delicacies - Icewine. Niagara Peninsula is renowned for the quality of its
Icewine, and from Japan to Europe Icewine is synonymous with the highest level
of luxury goods.
    Donald Ziraldo takes readers on a personal tour through the amazing world
of cool-climate viticulture and Icewine-making. Ziraldo draws on his insights
and experience to bring to life what is an exacting science, an expressive
art, and an earthy celebration of regional terroir.
    The complex factors that determine a fine wine-soil, grape varieties,
pressing, cork quality, and cold climate, which are all needed to produce
Icewine-are all colourfully presented in this handsome keepsake volume.
    Winemaker Karl Kaiser adds a chapter on the scientific aspects of Icewine
making. Beautiful photographs complement more than 20 scrumptious recipes from
the late, resident chef Izabela Kalabis-Sacco that rely on Icewine as a main
ingredient. Food and wine pairings provide the perfect finish for this
luxurious volume, designed to immerse readers in the velvety smoothness of
Canada's most precious beverage.

    Donald J.P. Ziraldo is the co-founder with Karl Kaiser of the
award-winning Inniskillin Wines and pioneered Canada's estate winery movement.
He has worked to bring Icewine and Canadian wine to the world. He is an
educator and creative entrepreneur who is the recipient of a stream of awards
and accolades for his business acumen and cultural contributions. Inniskillin
was purchased by Constellation brands in 2006 and the winery now joins a
company with a worldwide reach. Ziraldo is a collector of Art Deco objects
d'art, skis internationally, and is a founding member of the VQA in Ontario.
