Nebraska Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of Nebraska? Then look for a a Nebraska Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local Nebraska wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. Nebraska has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like Scottsbluff, Chadron, Norfolk
and Wayne, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of NE wines. Many specialize in fine NE wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like Urban Wine Festival in Omaha
in May, Nebraska Wine & Jazz Festival in Kearney in May, or
Nebraska Balloon & Wine Festival in West Omaha in August, you
may find wines from Big Cottonwood Vineyards, Prairie Vine Vineyards
LLC, 5 Trails Winery, Superior Estates Winery, and many others at
Nebraska wine festivals. In addition to wine, these events can include
excellent food to sample, prepared by local restaurants and chefs.
And often you can expect music too. After all, nothing pairs better
with wine than a little Jazz, or Blue Grass music. Local musicians
are out playing their best music to accompany the wine tasting.
Whether you're visiting North Platte, McCook, Omaha and Grand Island
you can find a local wine, food and music festival that will perfect
your NE vacation. The most popular time of year for these festivals
are the Fall and Summer months, but they are also scheduled during
holiday months as well. Imagine sipping some great wines while watching
the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony! So although, you may
not have time to visit all of Nebraska's
great wineries, you can taste their wines at these great events.
So get out and enjoy! As always, Wine Bar Wineries is here to help
you find exciting wine, food and music festivals near you.
