If we like the wine, being an 'expert' doesn't make much difference AFAIC. It's the same with cigars, my favorite is the Partagas D4's made in Cuba. My travel buddy and I visited their factory in Havana, but that was many moons ago. The first time we drank ice wine was during our tour of Germany. They served us a small portion that we had to pay for. I think it was $3.50 for a small shot glass. It's a labor intensive wine, so the cost is usually higher than the average cost of table wines that most of us are accustomed to. Canada also produces ice wine. It's my understanding that their quality is comparable to the ones in Germany; right climate, right soil.
