Schilling Bridge is probably my favorite winery, however, I also may be biased since I grew up near Pawnee City. Seriously, though, I think they have a great variety of wines, as well as other beverages (beer and Wine-A-Rita). As for choosing a favorite wine, it really depends on the day. Some days, my favorite is Women Gone Wine, but other days, it might be My Blue Diamond. If you like margaritas, the Wine-A-Rita is always a great choice. I visited again this past weekend, and tried their new Cayuga, and am very excited to open that bottle!! :)

Favorite Wine: Chambourcin
We've always heard good things about Schillingbridge both for their wines and their beers. On our visit today, we were not disappointed. A nice acreage of well maintained grapes greeted us on our entrance. The tasting room/restaurant was among the largest we have encountered. Definitely the largest we have seen in either Nebraska or Iowa. (There is another large room to your right when you first enter.) While spacious, it seemed more like a cafe than a winery tasting room. But maybe I have grown accustomed to the over-decorated or themed tasting rooms I have seen elsewhere. As for the wines, there was not one we did not like. The drier wines were our favorites as usual though. They had a dry white named Chef's Choice that was primarily made from the Aurore grape. It reminded me of a floral Sauvignon Blanc or Seyval Blanc. I usually have trouble liking dry whites but I liked this one quite a bit. Not sure how a real connoisseur of whilte wines might feel about it though. The aurore grape was used in several of their wines including a blush that was quite nice. Usually for me a lot of blushes/roses I try have an element that is off-putting to me. Not this one with the Aurore grape though. The wine I really liked here was their dry Chambourcin. Nicely done. They had a Baco Noir that my wife liked quite well. I liked it too for what it was but so far I have not developed a real liking to Baco Noir or even Pinot Noir for that matter. On the beer side of things, I thought they were all decent but not as bold and flavorful as a lot of craft beers I have tried. Some of this is due to their seasonal ones on tap this day were summer beers intended to be lighter. The standard lager, Git-R Done was my favorite on this trip. Had a pleasant, a bit on the sweet side, finish. Speaking of finish, we ended our day with a fabulous Prime Rib dinner. If you're at Schillingbridge on a Saturday, I would highly suggest you partake in the Prime Rib. You do need to make reservations though a day ahead. This is because they start the meat through a 24 hour cooking journey that includes lots of wine. I was able to cut it with my fork it oh so flavorful. The beer bread was like a steak in an of itself. When I first heard it came with a cream corn side, I was like "Well, OK, whatever. Too bad there wasn't a different side." However, when I took my first glance and then my first bite of this creamed corn. WOW! It was crazy delectible. It couldn't have been good for me but who cares. We'll gladly visit again. Back to the Chambourcin: Nebraska is really coming along with their Chambourcin wines with Schillingbridge, Glacial Till and Silver Hills... leading the way.

The other WineGoobers and I visited ShillingBridge on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in late August. The service was excellent, our server was friendly and knew all about all of the wines available. We tried Forever Venus, Edelweis, and Blue Diamond. Each wine was better than the previous one. We sat on the patio, which overlooks the vineyard, the view was spectacular and we were frequently checked on to be sure we didn't need anything. This is a must see on your vineyard tour of Nebraska!

Favorite Wine: Silent Star
This is an excellent place to stop for a glass of wine or one of their exceptional brews. Mike and Sharon are fantastic and make you feel at home. The patio is a great place to relax. A walk to the bridge is a must!

Favorite Wine: Women Gone Wine
By far my favorite winery. It is totally worth the drive. The Schillings are great people and treat their customers very well. Every wine has a nice clean flavor. . .I can't say I dislike any of them. The brew is good too!
