Wine, Beer & Events All Year Long!

Soaring Wings Vineyard began planting and planning in 2001, when Jim Shaw and family purchased the land in Springfield, NE. Opening their doors to the public in 2004, business took off soaring and hasn’t quit since! Through many additions to both the infrastructure and the wine list, loyal customers have helped establish both weekly and annual events. Around 2011, Jim began brewing beer to accommodate for both his own interest and that of his patrons! Now with over 20 wine selections and 9 brews, we are certain there is a beverage for every palate here at Soaring Wings (an assortment of non-alcoholic beverages are also available).

Soaring Wings wine can be purchased on site or at select local retailers including Hy-Vee & Bakers! Call ahead to verify product availability.
