Post Familie Vineyards & Winery
Post Familie Winery, founded by Jacob Post in the 1880s remains one of the most prominent wineries in Arkansas and is one of the leading 100 wineries in the US. The vineyard, which is located in Altus, is the second leading winery in terms of output in Arkansas (first in output according to their company website). The vineyard grows the native Muscadine fruit for fermenting among carrying traditional wines such as merlots, chardonnays, and even produces high quality non-alcoholic juices.
The winery is in its fifth generation of the Post family, and has been under the leadership of Matt Post since 1953. The winery has vineyards atop the Saint Mary's Mountain in Altus, where all of the Altus wineries grow their grapes. They have received several awards both regionally and nationally for their Red Zinfandel and Vignoles.
Post Familie Winery participates in several community functions throughout the year including Wakarusa at Mulberry Mountain, the Springtime Gala at Altus City Park, the Mount Magazine Butterfly Festival at Mt. Magazine State Park, and the Altus Grape Festival among others.
