Have some Wine with your cheese!
THE PERFECT PAIRING…
We are thrilled to be offering EB Wines for purchase with our boxes and boards. In 2002, EB’s founder, Ed, decided to plant 25 two-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines in his backyard. Two years later he was able to harvest just over 100 pounds. In addition to the harvested crop, Ed purchased 500 pounds of grapes and blended them with the fruit from our backyard vineyard, and our first wine was produced.
As a family endeavor and one in which Ed has been paramount to the winery’s success, it was decided to name the winery “Eddie’s Backyard.” As an avid and knowledgeable wine maker, Ed is involved in all aspects of the winemaking process. He continues to expand his knowledge and education though participation in the Orange County Home Winemaking Society.
Since 2002, EB Winery has produced over 60 different wine varietals. Their wines have been entered in numerous competitions: Orange County Fair, Los Angeles County Fair, California State Fair, San Joaquin Fair, Indiana State Fair, and the Wine Maker Magazine International Competition. The dedication of Ed’s work has garnered over 190 awards and counting. In 2009, our 2007 Syrah was selected as the Wine Maker Magazine International Competition Grand Champion from 4,476 entries. Similarly in 2013, their 2011 Pinot Noir was awarded as Best of Show Red Wine, topping 2,300 other entries.
In 2014, EB Winery was created to carry the brand forward utilizing Ed’s talent for making award-winning, custom wines. They currently produce most of their handcrafted wines in Encinitas, California while sourcing grapes from California's finest vineyards.
