Arkansas Wineries-What?


Wine, Vineyards, and tastings…let your mind picture and savor this. Sonoma Valley or France, right? Surely your mind didn’t think, Altus Arkansas, this will be my wine haven. No? Not surprising.

I read a great article “Winery tours hit spot for me, pop” that covers some of the main wineries in Arkansas. The article doesn’t include Eureka Springs Winery Keels Creek but it does give a nice overview of what to expect and hopefully spark some curiosity over Arkansas vineyards.

More information:

Chateau aux Arc, 8045 Arkansas 186, Altus, (479) 468-4400,

Mount Bethel Winery, 5014 Mount Bethel Drive, Altus, (479) 468-2444,

Post Familie Vineyards, 1700 St. Mary’s Mountain Road, Altus, (479) 468-2741, (800) 275-8423,

Wiederkehr Wine Cellars, 3324 Swiss Family Drive, Wiederkehr Village, (479) 468-9463, (800) 622-9463,

Mark your calendar: The 32nd annual Altus Grape Festival, featuring food, crafts, grape stomping and more, will be held July 24-25 in Altus City Park. Visit My husband and I went to this last year  during the day, so maybe the night or early evening is better.
