it’s always been about the adventure

The Soaring Wings winery was owned by Jim and Sharon Shaw for 20 years and speaks to a story of serendipity and passion. After living in Dallas and returning to take care of family, they stumbled upon the property in Springfield that would become their winery.

With a vision fueled by their love for wine and the beauty of the land, they knew this was where they would build their dream. At that time, there was only one other winery in the area, making their venture both pioneering and ambitious.

Jim, a pilot by profession, cleverly named the winery Soaring Wings as a nod to his aviation background, symbolizing the spirit of adventure and freedom that defines their winemaking journey.

Experience the taste of Nebraska wines

Nebraska’s wine industry has a rich history dating back to the mid-1800s when European settlers first planted grapevines in the region. Over the years, Nebraska has established itself as a notable wine-producing state, thanks to its diverse climate and soil conditions.

Today, Nebraska vineyards primarily cultivate hybrid grape varieties such as Frontenac, La Crescent, LaCrosse, Chambourcin, and Brianna which are well-suited to the state’s challenging weather patterns. These grape varieties are known for their hardiness, disease resistance, and ability to withstand colder temperatures, making them ideal choices for Nebraska’s climate. Additionally, newer cold-hardy grape varieties like Clarion and Petite Pearl are gaining popularity, expanding the range of wines produced in the state.

With ongoing research and experimentation, Nebraska’s wine industry continues to evolve, offering a range of high-quality wines that reflect the unique terroir of the region.
