Wine lovers find that wines from Nebraska have a little more depth and complexity than the standard, traditional varieties. If you close your eyes when you take a sip, you might also taste an undercurrent of prairie breeze with a hint of sunshine, or a meadowlark trill in early spring. Or if you prefer bolder tastes, a big Nebraska wine might suggest a hint of thunderstorm with a crackle of lightning, or a full stadium on a Saturday night.
When you enjoy Nebraska wines, you can also taste a bit of the care and craftsmanship that went into them from vine to cellar, with hints of tradition and a faint, lingering glow of family. When you taste a Nebraska wine, you taste more than just the wine. You taste a bit of Nebraska.
Join us for the first annual Vindemia grape conference in Nebraska City, NE organized by the Nebraska Winery and Grape Growers Association, with a focus on bringing people together to have fun, learn, and ultimately grow so we can bolster the burgeoning Midwestern grape scene. Vindemia’s Latin root literally means ‘grape gathering’. No other name described our event so well.
