Junto Wine

Our wine begins in the vineyard. We take pride in crafting unique vintages that embody the essence of Nebraska’s distinctive climate and cold-hardy grape varieties. From robust reds to delicate dessert whites to amber wines, our commitment to the craft is reflected in every bottle.  At Junto, we invite you to explore the art of winemaking.   

Nebraska vineyard

Our Vineyard

Good wine can only be made with good grapes. At Junto, we grow eight acres of nine cold-hardy hybrid grape varieties. All grapes at Junto are harvested by hand and pruned by a small staff with a combined 50+ years of experience!

Our Process

We combine old-world philosophies with new age technologies to produce unique wines that tell the story of each season. Pioneering quality, we were the first in Nebraska to utilize a cross-flow filtration system, which allows us to minimize oxygen in-take and maximize wine clarity and stability, and produce sweet wines without using artificial sugar or Potassium Sorbate (a preservative). We also work with the premier mobile-bottling operation in the Midwest. But it all starts in the vineyard, where we work closely with our vines; from pruning to harvesting to bottling, our passion is the process.
