An enjoyable alternative to the sweet fruity wines that the Amana's are known for. Their Spatlese was delicious.... Since it's not always easy to find, I bought an extra!

Friendliest staff serving samples, real wine, not the fruit flavors of other local wineries here,not a criticism, just my preference. Bought a case, very good chardonnay and dry reds. Atmosphere just as one would expect for a good winery.

The owners of White cross are a delight to talk with as they ply you with a multitude of samples. They have reds and whites. You can drink your wine on their patio and relax. The Chateau Blanc is really really good! Go try it.
