Icellars Estate Winery

A Certified Organic, Certified Sustainable, Regeneratively farmed winery in Niagara, Ontario, Canada making premium small lot wines. We aim to alter our land the least possible when farming.


Icellars Estate Winery is a small boutique VQA member winery located in Niagara Wine Country.

Icellars vineyards and winery are fittingly located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, birthplace and origin of the Canadian Wine Industry. Small batch wines are produced from the farm and inspired by classic winemaking styles deeply rooted in the history of viticulture and winemaking.

The 60 acre fallow land was carefully selected by owners Adnan and Elif ICEL based on precise research of ideal growing conditions for premium vinifera varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petite Verdot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Viognier. Extensive investigation included soil testing and weather data analysis as well as consultation with scientists, local grape growers and neighbors to determine which varieties would perform best in the vineyard.

The winery uses mainly estate grown fruit from its 48 acres hand-manicured vineyard. The vineyard is overseen and inspected by owners Adnan and Elif, who walk their vineyard on a daily basis, knowing each vine intimately. They sometimes source premium single vineyard grapes in very good years.
