Are you looking for a venue to host your next “Girl’s Night Out?” Perhaps you’re looking for lodging this weekend along the river for a weekend getaway. Or maybe you just want relax with a glass of wine. Then look no further, because the Eagles Landing Winery and Vineyard has all your wine needs, and a beautiful venue for a Bed and Breakfast whether you decide to stay for an afternoon, or stay for a weekend! Sitting along the Mighty Mississippi River in Marquette in Clayton County, It’s my favorite winery to visit that has a beautiful view of the Mississippi River.
The Eagles Landing Bed and Breakfast has five available lodging rooms, and offers a delicious, home-cooked traditional American, German, or Norwegian style of breakfast, and it’s all served family style. After a delicious breakfast, I love to relax along the bank of the Mississippi with a glass of “Marquette Maid” wine in one hand, and a good book in the other.
The Eagles Landing Winery produces local “Marquette Maid” wine, which offers many different varieties of wine to suit everybody’s wine needs, including deep reds, crisp whites, fruity berry wines, and sweet dessert wines. No matter your preference, “Marquette Maid” has a wine for you. My personal favorite is Mrs. Sippi, a light semi-sweet red wine made with a blend of Marechal Foch and Frontenac grapes. It’s bold, it has a nice amount of sweetness, and it just feels right to have a “Mrs. Sippi” along the Mississippi.
This summer, June 16th and 17th come and join me to celebrate the release of the winery’s 2017 summer release of new wines, and the re-release of Summer’s Crush, a semi-sweet table wine that is crisp and clean, with flavors of peach and apricot, made from the Frontenac Gris Grape. This wine is made in memory of Cindy’s Grandpa and Grandma Valley, and is a gold medal winner. So for you Summer Crush lovers out there or those who want to try it for the first time, it’s coming back!
So whether you’re looking for the perfect venue for your next weekend getaway, or a setting to enjoy a dry red with a good book, come join the family at the Eagles Landing Winery, where they turn grapes into wine and strangers into friends.
