Date: Fri Jan 19 22:31:29 2018
It's that time of year again when our cellar will be awash with the fruity fragrance of fresh pressed grapes and the heady aroma of fermentation in the air. Nothing like it!
We pick our wine grapes when the grapes are at their peak flavor and each year we invite our friends to help us with the fun harvest experience. Right now it looks like we'll be picking grapes within the next two weeks (either the first or second Saturday in September). Want to help? Read on for more information.
Visit us! Make sure to stop by the winery soon to try our wines and spend some time sipping wine and relaxing in our gathering room, wandering in our vineyard, and checking out our latest gift shop items. We're open Tuesday-Saturday: 10am to 5pm; Sunday: 1pm to 5pm; and closed Mondays.
See you soon!
Volunteers over 21 are welcome and will be rewarded with a bottle of wine and lunch!
Medals: Raspberry & Chokecherry
Cheers to our winemaker Ken!
ASK FOR QUALITY WINES. Eagle City Winery is proud to report 18 of our 20 wines are IQ certified! What does that mean?
Quality Wine Assurance - To increase consumer awareness of Iowa's wine quality the Midwest Grape and Wine Industry Institute has assisted the Iowa Wine Growers Association (IWGA) to establish the Iowa Quality Wine Consortium (IQWC).To be awarded IQWC status, wines submitted will need to pass both laboratory chemical analysis and sensory evaluation to be recommended by the Wine Institute Director and approved by the Iowa Quality Wine Consortium (IQWC) board.

KEN ON CAMERA: The Wine Diamonds documentary film team visited us late last winter and filmed an interview with owner/winemaker Ken Groninga and then afterwards shot a short web series episode called, "on the road."

FUN WINE FACT: In ancient Greece, a dinner host would take the first sip of wine to assure guests the wine was not poisoned, hence the phrase "drinking to one's health." "Toasting" started in ancient Rome when the Romans continued the Greek tradition but started dropping a piece of toasted bread into each wine glass to temper undesirable tastes or excessive acidity.
