Ed has been very busy this year between all of his winemaking duties, he managed to find time to move the tasting room across the hall to our new location.
We are now able to offer seating, fruit and cheese plates to accompany your delicious glass of wine.
It was wonderful to see all of our wine club members come and celebrate our beautiful new spacious tasting room last weekend! Wine, music, food and smiles all around. Everyone got to enjoy lots of wine and take home their very own logo wine glass!
The end of the evening was topped off with a drawing of a 2 night stay at The Cottage at Eagle Creek Winery. The name of the lucky winner is Lisa Bergman. Congratulations Lisa!!
You will see some new faces when you visit us at the winery or the tasting room and we are all looking forward to seeing you this summer.
It's been a great year and we owe it to all our loyal customers ... so ... Thank you!

Renaissance man of Eagle Creek From military career to winemaker, Ed Rutledge has a passion for action

Ed Rutledge, owner of Eagle Creek Winery in Leavenworth, is a former military officer who later worked as director of sales for a major book company. He started winemaking as a hobby, but it has grown to an operation that produces about 1,000 cases of red and white wine varieties annually.
LEAVENWORTH Call him a renaissance man if you will, but Ed Rutledge will tell you hes just a guy of many interests.
His latest interest has been making and selling wine at Eagle Creek Winery. Over the past 10 years, he planted a vineyard and built the winery, tasting room and guest house around his own home that he also built on Eagle Creek Road. He and wife Pat moved to the area from New York in 1991.
He recently remodeled a Leavenworth storefront for a new downtown tasting room, dVinery, at 617 Front St. The intricate designs carved into the bar are his doing, as well as the carvings, murals and other artworks at the home winery and guest house. The winery annually produces about 1,000 cases of red and white wine varieties, all of which are sold at the two tasting rooms and through a wine club.

Spring is here and it is bottling time! Our Favorite Winemaker, Ed is bottling some delicious Cabernet Sauvignon just for you! Only a few years from now, we will be pouring it into our own wine glass and enjoying it.
When done here it is off to foiling and then to putting the labels on those wine bottles perfectly!
Wine is the thinking person's health drink.
