We’re still not traveling, but Eagle Creek Vineyard is just a short drive down the river from Northern Kentucky, we visited last week for an afternoon. Located on Main Street in Warsaw just a few doors away from the well-known Jewells on Main, Eagle Creek Vineyard was a nice diversion on a dreary, rainy day in February. Owners Dave and Beth Lynn have created a nice place to visit that’s made even nicer because they have good wine. Their wine list includes many of the sweeter wines such as Concord, Niagara, and Catawba, native grapes that are well known to most Kentucky wine drinkers. Purchasing juice mostly from New York, the winery also feature dry reds such as Shiraz, Malbec, and Dornfelder as well as dry whites like Sauvignon Blanc and Vignoles. Sauvignon Blanc and Dornfelder were our favorites.
My favorite dry white is Sauvignon Blanc and I’m always excited to find new offerings especially in Kentucky, this was a pleasing find. The wine offers the crisp, acidic, tart apple flavors with the herbal aromas that lovers of this wine expect. Dornfelder, a German grapes, is not often found in Kentucky. We were pleased to see the wine on their list prior to visiting, but their offering on their wine list was sweet. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and found they had a dry Dornfelder. For those unfamiliar with this grape, the wines have a dark fruit taste with dark spicy overtones and made for lovers of a nice dry red wine.
The weather was somewhat dreary and wet, so photos of the outside were not possible, but here’s a glimpse of the tasting room which provides a cozy welcoming place to enjoy some good Kentucky wine. A visit to Eagle Creek Vineyard is a nice way to spend an afternoon.
