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 and patiently wait.  Our vines are tough but this has been a very 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 soon as they can.

While spring is just around the corner we're really excited to let you know we've finally gotten label approval for two new wines: Harvest Blend, a blend of grapes, cranberry and rhubarb; and Strawberry Wine, made with fresh strawberries.

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!

Ken & Carolyn

VINEYARD UPDATE:
  If Winter ever ends we'll be pruning our grapevines in late March.  We're getting our pruning shears ready by sharpening them, taking a peek at our vines and crossing our fingers that this extremely cold winter hasn't harmed the vines too much.  The good thing is the grape vines we have in the ground at Eagle City Winery are bred to handle the cold weather of Iowa.
