Hello Wine Friends!

This cold weather makes us just want to curl up in front of a cozy fireplace and enjoy a glass of mulled wine (recipe included) and take it easy.  It's been a busy and wonderful season at Eagle City Winery and our Fall Open House was a blast and we're so thankful you joined us. As the Holidays approach we would like to encourage you to give the gift of wine to your loved ones, family and friends and soon we'll be releasing our Christmas Tree shaped bottles of wine (in red and green bottles) that are sure to be a hit again this year (Limited Release).

When was the last time you visited us at our winery near Iowa Falls?  We'd love for you to 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!
Ken & Carolyn

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."  Click here to watch the short video: https://youtu.be/w_djLgueJOg - learn more about the film project by visiting: www.winediamondsfilm.com\
