On a damp and chilly September Monday, Mom and I arrived at the Winery to check it out. Upon going inside, we were greeted by the Retail Manager, Denise, who went back to a meeting in the back of the winery. No one was at the bar and sampling station, so Mom and I explored the small winery on our own.
The Winery at Eagle Knoll offers several white and red wines and an inexpensive Blush wine that was the cheapest thing available for sale at $6.95. The rest of the wines were $8 and up and were in small bottles that wouldn't last very long in our house.
The interior and exterior of The Winery are nicely kept, and the inside is small with a bar and table for one to sit at. There is also a fire place and area for children to play in while the adults check out the winery. I wasn't very impressed with the winery and the lack of service it had. A young girl showed up at the bar a few minutes after Mom and I came in, but she only was getting wine for the folks participating in the meeting. A loud man in the meeting was talking about being rearended that morning in his rental car. Lovely!The good things about The Winery at Eagle Knoll was the location and the interior of the place. The bad things were the lack of service, the high prices of the wines, and feeling like you weren't welcome there. I doubt if Mom and I are going to return to the Winery anytime soon.
