Hello Eagle City Winery Friends,
With the official start of spring only a few weeks away we look out over
our vineyard, still covered with crusty snow and temperatures below zero

challenging winter for our grape vines and we're hopeful they will feel
the warm sunshine of spring and sprout with beautiful green shoots just as

a blend of grapes, cranberry and rhubarb; and Strawberry Wine, made with
We're still keeping abbreviated winery hours until this weather breaks, so
before you stop by, please give us a call. If you can't make it to our
winery you can always find our wines near you and, in fact, we ship to
many states across the US. Your support during the winter months is very
welcome and we are grateful for your business. Thank you.
See you soon!
