Our Story

About Ice Cream Cellars

Ice Cream Cellars is the product of an extensive research and development project, spearheaded by two visionary entrepreneurs and friends, Raphael Yakoby and David Kanbar. Raphael (creator of Hpnotiq and Nuvo) and David (formerly EVP of Skyy Vodka and co-creator of Skinnygirl) had the vision for a blend of confectionary flavors with fine wines, creating a truly unique and elevated wine experience.

What do we mean by “elevated”? Ice Cream Cellars was inspired by the tasting notes that one often hears or reads wine experts use to describe great wines, such as hints of coffee, chocolate, raspberry and vanilla. Raphael and David thought blending these beautiful flavors with our fine wine, would elevate that experience. In addition, Ice Cream Cellars had to have the look and viscosity of a wine specialty, with our delicious flavors blended in perfect harmony.

While “industry experts” said they were borderline off-their-rockers to even try, luckily they found a blender who was just as crazy. It took almost two years of pain, but they finally achieved perfection.

So why the name Ice Cream Cellars? Raphael and David thoroughly enjoy Ice Cream; it’s one of their favorite treats. It’s not only delicious, but it can be enjoyed anytime, just like wine. So, the flavors were developed around an Ice Cream theme. One sip and you will taste the ice cream flavors come through with our delicious fine wines.

The results speak for themselves. Ice Cream Cellars’ blends are simply delicious, yet none of our flavored wines are cloying, rich or overly sweet, so they can be consumed anytime, for virtually any occasion, with or without a meal.

All of our flavors (whether red or white) should be served chilled. Enjoy responsibly!
