PGA Golfer Mike Weir Launches Icewine
With seven PGA wins to his credit Canada's Mike Weir is recognized as one of the better golfers to ever come out of the Great White North. He's also trying to build a name for himself as a winemaker.
The next step in the process for the Mike Weir Estate Winery is the release of its inaugural icewine during the Niagara Icewine Festival (www.niagaraicewinefestival.com) taking place throughout the region from Jan. 19-28. The Weir 2005 Vidal Icewine, a sweet and intensely flavored dessert wine, will be sampled at events during the festival.
Weir has partnered with NiagaraÂs Creekside Estate Winery to a line of premium wines, with proceeds going to The Mike Weir Foundation, which supports various charities in Canada.
