Highlights of Iowa's Amana Colonies
Wineries and breweries
The colonies' winemaking tradition continues at Ackerman (319/622-3379; ackermanwinery.com) and Ehrle Brothers, the Amanas' oldest winery (319/622-3241). Take a refined break from sweet colony wines at Fireside Winery (pictured at left; 319/662-4222; firesidewinery.com). Or buy a pitcher of beer and sit on the deck at Millstream, Iowa's oldest brewery (319/622-3672; millstreambrewing.com).
