“Great place for a romantic date”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

My husband I had fun doing a wine tasting. We went mid-week so we had the place to ourselves. It was a little out of the way but in a great way. Lovely vistas, pretty decor, and helpful staff.

“Beautiful setting...seriously good wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

It's rather sad Arkansas' wineries don't get more attention. Cannot think of a better way to spend an afternoon than enjoying the scenery, meeting interesting people, supporting the locals, and drinking good wine.

Chateau Aux Arc has a nice variety of exceptional wines depending on your preference. Sweet...their signature Altage is an award-winning white blend; dry...the zinfandel and Bishop's Red are terrific; crisp whites...their chardonnay matches up with anyone.

We had a great experience tasting with Chef Larry and enjoyed meeting the owner, Audrey. Take the time to visit Altus, Chateau Aux Arc, and the other local wineries.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

What happened mto the wine? This winery has always been my favorite, since the owner did tastings from her garage. I love the new tasting center and was so looking forward to tasting the newest release of the Chardonnay. Unfortunately it was bitter and sour as were the other wine varieties. Please go back to the methods used in 2005 or earlier.

“The Best Winery of the Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

The lady working in this wineries tasting room was very nice and helpful. We were the only people there so she chatted with us for quite some time. She told us all about the winemaker as well as the vines and grapes. It was really nice.
