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.

His 12 sons and daughters ensure the familie tradition of making fine wines will continue Read more »

    This was one of the best red wines I have had for quite some time, I really enjoyed it. You can chill it or drink it room temperature. Not too sweet and not too dry, just right. Read More
