WELCOME TO JAMES ARTHUR VINEYARDS
Established in 1996, James Arthur Vineyards is nestled amidst 400 acres of rolling hills and natural prairie grasslands minutes north of Lincoln, near Raymond, NE. The surrounding beauty creates a picturesque setting for our winery, which houses an immaculate tasting room, a gift shop, a stunning party room and all the production facilities. Since opening its front doors, JAV has hosted thousands of visitors from all over the world. Everyone is encouraged to sample from a wide variety of wines, stroll the grounds or sit under the covered deck by the waterfall–or enjoy an intimate setting by a warm crackling fire in the tasting room during those cold winter days, all while sipping some of Nebraska’s finest. Our family’s 3rd generation has now become involved in the winery, making JAV a true family endeavor. Built on passion, dedication, and old-fashioned hard work, JAV has built a business Nebraskans can be proud of. After all, this is our home, love, and livelihood. From our family to yours!
