Welcome to Nissen Wine! Tucked into the rolling hills of northern Cedar County, Nebraska, Nissen Wine is a family-owned and family-operated winery, with grapes planted in 12 acres of the 400-acre farm.
The Nissen family selected vines to complement the calcium-rich rocky soils, climate and terroir of this region. The first vines were planted in the spring of 2003. More vines have been added every year since. Our first harvest and fermentation occurred in 2006 and is now ready to be enjoyed.

At Nissen Wine, we believe great wines begin within the vineyard, with selection of the right vineyard site for the right varieties. Quality wines are a result of making the right decisions throughout the year and providing gentle assistance to allow the plant to perform at its peak. Nissen Wine employs hand-harvesting methods to guarantee that the highest-quality fruit possible reaches the winery. Read more about the vineyard...
