Eaglemount Winery was founded in 2006 in one of the original homesteads in the area. We started making wine and then hard cider from the wonderful heirloom apples from our homestead orchard in 1996. Some of the varieties include: Gravenstein, Winter Banana, Jonathan, Roxbury Russet and more. We also have a cider orchard with French and English varieties of cider apples. As our passion for winemaking blossomed, we found premium wine grapes from small eastern Washington vineyards. Our underground cellar proved to be the perfect place to age these wines. Our tasting room is open Friday – Saturday 11-5. www.eaglemountwineandcider.com
