Winetasting in Central NE

with 4 comments

Quite awhile back we blogged about a newer vineyard and winery just a few miles north of St. Paul called Miletta Vista.  Finally, myself along with my wife and a couple friends took a trip to see the legendary view and sip some tasty beverages.


While no connoisseur, I do enjoy homegrown varietals time and again.  The top vote-getter for our party’s favorite wine: the Serenade (blends of LaCrosse and Edeweiss grapes).  We enjoyed a plate of meat and cheese with some focaccia bread to boot.

You can find out more about Miletta Vista here, and more on Nebraska wines here.  Our afternoon getaway was under $60 for the gas, the wine and the food for 4, plus it was great to explore the hidden gems in rural Nebraska.  Get out there!
