The OBSERVER

WESTFIELD - This week's frigid weather in western New York with 25 inches of snow reported in Ripley and Westfield on Monday - was good news for the ice wine producers concentrated in Buffalo's "ice wine triangle," the roughly 70-mile area near Buffalo that includes Niagara and Chautauqua counties as well as the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario, Canada. This region, with the all-important Niagara and Alleghany Escarpments which help to capture moderating lake air, is one of the very few regions in the world, along with the Finger Lakes, Germany and Austria, which can claim to have the right climate and the right geography for the production of high quality ice wine grapes.
