Post Familie Winegrowers --- Since 1880, five generations of Posts have cultivated and harvested their grapes to make Post Familie wines. The founder of our wine heritage and Altus viticulture was Jacob Post, a German who arrived in America in 1872. From his cellar, he sold the first Altus wines to passengers on the Iron Mountain Railroad, when the train stopped by his farm for fuel and water. His daughter-in-law, the colorful Katherine Post, was rumored to have served wine with her meals at her very popular restaurant during the Prohibition Era. After Prohibition, the state legislature turned to her son James for help in writing laws to make winegrowing legal once again. He and his son Mathew formed the Post Winery at its present location. By adding new grape varieties to the vineyards and improvements in the winemaking process, combined with increasing storage capacity, Matt made the winery a successful business. His 12 sons and daughters ensure the familie tradition of making fine wines will continue. Today it is this fifth generation that is continuing this winegrowing tradition of excellence. Incorporating the latest technology has improved both vineyards and winery. Our resulting wines have been Gold Medal Winners. Taste the tradition and "Toast with Post." Read less

This I would have to say is the 2nd greatest wine I've had, and only because their Red Muscadine is the best. But I can't find that anymore. If youre looking for the white go to the PFI Western Wear website.

This is a wondeful wine, it is such a pity Arkansas will not allow Post Familie - or any Arkansas winery - to ship their product. It's a long drive to up to Arkansas from Houston to buy the wine so unless I am up that way again (camping at Lake Fort Smith) - unlikely anytime soon - I will have to sadly make do with some local plonk. Great wine, if you have a chance to drop in at the winery at Altus, treat yourselves. I am down to my last bottle, so please have one for me.
