People are surprised at how Northern Ice Vidal Icewine pairs well with the chili powder heat, yet that is precisely the type of food pairing that goes best with this complex and crisp concentrated wine. When we first served this to our family and friends, they told Jamie “This is the best chili recipe you have ever made. Stop trying new recipes and use this one from now on. This is how chili should taste.”
The origins of Chili are uncertain, but it's natural to think of it as an North American classic. Chili has many regional interpretations, and within each region almost as many recipes as there are cooks. Niagara has Icewine as its specialty so we think it is fitting to add an extra splash when you are serving this tasty dish.
