The Kisses Trio - Ice Style Dessert Wines
While we make many fine wines that have won awards at national and international competitions, our ice style wines – The Kisses - are our signature and perhaps what we are best known for. These amazing wines present the kind of fascinating, memorable, and unexpected taste experiences that appeal to a wide array of wine lovers, even those who don't think they like sweet dessert wines. Like the Niagara Peninsula just across Lake Erie from us, our excellent vineyards and snowy and icy winters that start soon after harvest season create the perfect setting for making delectable late harvest dessert wines from frozen grapes. Our traditional ice style wine – Eskimo Kisses – has been consistently well received in competition for many years, routinely winning gold at competitions across the country.
“We judged seven best of class flights, and almost all of the wines were exceptional...Presque Isle in Pennsylvania makes some fabulous dessert wines, and if you can find their Lake Erie Eskimo Kisses, made with Vidal, buy it. I actually drank the whole glass, which never happens at a judging.”

Our Kisses Trio ice style wine line consists of three products – a traditional late harvest ice dessert wine called Eskimo Kisses, a chili pepper infused version called Hot Kisses that is a remarkable and perfect blend of sweet and hot, and our cinnamon infused version called Cinnful Kisses that is a wonderful flavor blending of sweet and savory with the rich aromatics of cinnamon.

The Kisses are value priced in the late harvest and ice wine dessert wine category and coupled with the range of amazing flavor experiences they offer, these three wines have great crossover appeal beyond those customers looking just for classic dessert and ice wines. They are a perfect accompaniment to finish off an elegant dinner party for friends, they pair wonderfully with Indian and other spicy foods and with ice cream, and as a trio they make for a fascinating tasting showing how the introduction of pepper and cinnamon profoundly alters the flavor profile in unexpected and delicious ways.

We have also found that The Kisses are a great foundation for making wonderful and inventive cocktails. With their sweetness they can replace simple syrup in craft cocktail constructions while introducing a whole new universe of flavor characteristics. We have worked with the craft mixologist at The Cedars Social, one of the premier craft cocktail bars in Dallas, Texas, to develop some fantastic cocktail recipes around the Kisses.
