Ice wine really isn't an exotic thing only found in Alaska. It has been made in Germany for a long time (Eiswein) and is also made in New Zealand, Washington state, and Idaho, among other places. They even make it in Ohio. There is one winery in Alaska that makes it at Denali, which is probably what Nadine saw on TV. It is much more popular in British Columbia so you'll likely find a larger selection in Victoria. It is a dessert wine and very sweet. It is likely you can find it at a nearby wine store - probably one with a larger inventory than most. If your state allows interstate wine sales you can probably order it on-line.
