McEachran Homestead Winery
McEachran Homestead was settled in 1857 by John McEachran, the great-great-grandfather of Herbert Greenlee, the current owner. In May 2010, it was born from a passion for quality wines. We are directly and meticulously involved with every stage in wine production: from growing the grapes on our two-acre vineyard to finishing and bottling the wine. We practice the philosophy of honoring the grape, not by ageing and adding flavors to the wines, but by keeping the integrity of each grape's flavors intact and allowing the freshness of our wines to speck for themselves. We proudly offer many seasonal fruit and 19 varieties of grape wines for purchase. We also have indoor and outdoor spaces available to hold events, such as weddings, showers, graduations.
