Ice WineCanada surely isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you think about wine. With its freezing gray weather it doesn’t exactly lend itself to wine production. However, Canadians have found a way around this slight location problem and have become leading producers of ice wine. Ice wine is made from grapes that are frozen directly on the vine; this process produces a sweet dessert wine.

Japan, Koshu Wine Sake
Japan, Koshu Wine Sake, the famous Japanese rice wine has been around for centuries. But more traditional wine production is a newer practice in Japan. Historically, Koshu is a tart-sweet grape that most people outside of Japan do not appreciate. However, lately, Japanese producers have been striving to create a wine that can compete on the global market. This means not adding sugar to the wine and keeping the grapes protected from too much sun – with paper origami hats!
