Ackerman Winery is proud to have the distinct honor of being the oldest operating winery in the state of Iowa. The Winery started in 1956 by Harry and Louisa Ackerman. In 1974, their son Les Ackerman along with his wife Linda took over operations and carried on the family wine-making tradition for over 40 years. In 2015, the Ackerman family handed down their long history of wine making tradition to another local family, The Wyants. Bill and Rona Wyant, of Marengo, Iowa (just a few miles outside of Amana) have a long family history of agriculture in the area and started another local winery outside of Marengo in 2007. The Wyant family is proud to continue the tradition of making high quality fruit wines.
Ackerman Winery produces near two dozen varieties of fruit and grape wines ranging from our Raspberry and Blackberry wines to uniquely different wines such as Dandelion, Rhubarb and Mango. Discounts are available when you purchase more. Save $5.00 on six bottles and $15 on twelve bottles. Wine club members save even more!
