Hello Eagle City Winery Friends,

Happy Spring!  After such a long, cold winter we were happy to get out into our vineyard and do some pruning this past several weeks.  We're hopeful the very low temperatures haven't hurt our vines this year. 

We're already planning for our annual Spring/Summer Winery Open House (July 12-13) and hope you can make it this year.  Our events are family-friendly and give us all a chance to reconnect (or if you're new to Eagle City Winery, a chance to visit a little and for you to try our wines).  The results from the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition are in and our Black Currant and Eagle City White did very well.

We'd love to have you visit us soon and remember we're back to our normal business hours.  Open Tuesday-Saturday: 10am to 5pm; Sunday: 1pm to 5pm; and closed Mondays. 

Hope to see you soon!

Ken & Carolyn
