Wine Wednesday: Post Familie Winery

My blog each Wednesday is going to discuss the wine offerings of Arkansas from individual vineyards, wines, winery festivals, wine events and more.

Post Familie Vineyards
The oldest commercial vineyard between California and New York, Post Familie Vineyards has been run by five generations of the Post family since 1880. Today, five Post brothers, along with two Post sisters, run the operation. Post offers an array of wines, juices and jellies as well as an extensive line of wine-related accessories in its gift shop, and is planning to expand its visitors center.

In addition to tasting the wine, some of the most fun I’ve had is listening to the Post siblings talk about their family and growing up within the winery. They have fun stories and memories to share along with a great passion for what they do. You’ll hear some of that on a tour or in the tasting room.

The winery is most noted for its Muscadine wine and its popular Chardonnay dinner wine; but, also sells about 15,000 cases of grape juice annually. Post has won more than 80 awards in international, national and regional competitions in the past year.

Their retail store is open from 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and noon-5 p.m. Sunday. Tours are available upon request between 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. The Tasting Room is open from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Post is located in Arkansas Wine Country at 1700 St. Mary’s Mountain Road in Altus. Phone 479-468-2741 or 800-275-8423 or visit for more information.
