Hello Wine Friends!

Can you believe the State Fair is just around the corner?  Where did the summer go?  Well, we still have a few very pleasant months to enjoy the beautiful Iowa weather and to get out and explore.  Visiting Iowa wineries is one thing many of our fans enjoy and we're happy to encourage your trips.  Of course, we love it most when you come to our winery and vineyard!

We'd love to have you visit us.  We're open Tuesday-Saturday: 10am to 5pm; Sunday: 1pm to 5pm; and closed Mondays. 

Hope to see you soon!
Ken & Carolyn

DECISIONS´┐ŻDECISIONS: "Many people who come into our winery make the statement that at most Iowa wineries they visit they like one or two wines and that is about it. Their comment is that at Eagle City Winery they like so many of the wines that they have a hard time making a decision as to which wines they want to buy.  We like to hear that." ~Ken
