Welcome to White Cross Cellars, Inc
A new approach to the Amana Colonies wine industry
White Cross Cellars is for people who love wine, located in the historic village of Amana, Iowa, White Cross Cellars is a new approach to the Amana Colonies wine industry. While the Amanas have long been famous for fruit wines, White Cross Cellars delivers a more traditional approach to the wines of the Amanas. We feature wines from classic wine grapes as well as Midwestern varieties and produce a wine in the European or California style. Our specialties are white wines reminiscent of the traditional German and French styles and red wines patterned after classic wines from Europe. Our wines are available in limited quantities and sold exclusively at our retail site in Amana, or in the near future, on line through our website.
