  • About

    Niobrara Valley Vineyards is located in the northern Sandhills near Nenzel, NE. It is an area known for production of quality cattle. The Nollette Brothers purchased Diamond Lazy J Ranch and started raising cattle in 1986. These were tough times to be involved in agriculture but our roots are here and so we were determined to stay.
    The plan to become self-sustaining started the exploration of growing grapes in the Sandhills and the first vines were planted in 2002. The semi-arid climate provides an excellent environment for high quality grapes. The low humidity, hot summers, cool nights, harsh winds and very cold winters contribute to hardy vines that require fewer herbicides, insecticides and fungicides. Our grapes make wines with more body and an explosion of flavors that is amplified by the harsh environment our grapes have to live in, making them hardy just like the people who live in the Sandhills. Currently we have 2350 vines and nine varieties of grapes that make up the unique blends of flavors that are in the Niobrara Valley Vineyards wines.

    We are a small winery. Our focus is on producing wines of the highest quality, not quantity. We have been told that we have some of the best wines in Nebraska and our customers keep coming back. We hope you will come and visit us at the winery and ranch.
