Our first experience at Altus was at Mount Bethel Winery and we were welcomed by the most gracious hostess who answered all our questions about wine...we tasted wine after wine and learned so much about each one..we had such a wonderful time that we took home many cases and bottles of these marvelous wines. Later we went to other wineries close by and was so disapointed by the service that was offered by each one so we highly recommend to everyone that wants to truly have a wonderful experience to go to Mount Bether Winery first.

Norton Wine Review: Mount Bethel Winery was our surprise vineyard of Arkansas. Part of the fun of being at this location was learning the past storied family wine connections, meeting a few of the family members and tasting wines in the original, built into the earthen bank, stone walled wine room. Because of market demands, MBW is better known for their sweet wines, but they also incorporate some most unique dry wines under their Domaine Montel label. Their 1st crop Viognier was an example of one of these surprises. Even their sweet pink Red Noble Muscadine was a fun wine. MBW’s ‘05 Zinfandel was exceptionally smooth and their Cynthiana [Norton] was most credible, being the best at a reasonable priced Cynthiana found in the state of Arkansas. While at MBW do not leave without trying their wonderful Elderberry wine and fortified, secret blend, Tawny Port.
