We visited James Arthur Vineyard about 2 weeks ago. Our visit was great and the staff were very nice. The best part was enjoying wine outside and relaxing. The view and everything around the vineyard was beautiful. We also really enjoyed the cats. If you are visiting in the Lincoln area definitely check this place out.

Great first time wine tasting experience. True Midwestern ambiance and decor. Bought a groupon deal and had no problems redeeming it. Great selection of local wines and very reasonable prices. Tapas were great and local cheeses and meats in the meat and cheese basket. Went on a Saturday night and a nice crowd but not too many people. Place is... More

Friends and families love this place and all that gather have their pace. From sipping to swirling it doesn't matter, their Nebraska wines go down fine. Whatever tickles your taste buds, you'll find here, from dry to sweet (they have no beer). The scenery is beautiful and trails to stroll, through the field s of vineyards that make it whole....

My wife and I met some of her friends at this vineyard for her friend's birthday. We weren't sure if the vineyard was going to have food and were we pleasantly surprised! They had grilled salmon and other such grilled items along with their normal cheese baskets. We ordered the couples cheese basket and we were able to share that... More

I used to like coming out to JAV but after my last experience I will never be back. We had planned to start our night out for a friends bachelorette party. I called ahead of time to see if we could reserve tables and the woman who answered said she'd have the owner call me back. Barb (an owner) called... More

We went with our brother and sister in law. I think he used a Groupon ticket, that gave us the 5 wine samples, along with a small loaf of bread (no flavor) and cheese in a basket. We found several wines to purchase for later enjoyment. We enjoyed the outdoor seating and their wonderful cats.

I go to JAV whenever I get a chance. Their wines are fantastic. The grounds are beautiful. The staff is a delight every time we go and I love the kitties:) I always feel at home here and there are always things going on whether you go to watch live music, watch a movie under the stars, participate in a...

Doing the wineries around Lincoln on a Saturday afternoon and as usual, we found ourselves here. Every time here has been a great time. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The outdoor seating is not crowded and there are wines to satisfy our entire group. Don't miss the cheese and sausage basket either. It comes with bread and the... More

We took an impromptu vineyard trip this weekend and visited 4 vineyards/tasting rooms. All of them were very different. James Arthur is very large and very commercial. They have a restaurant sized tasting room. There were about half a dozen people pouring tastings but they didn't offer very much information about the wines they were serving. They seemed more like... More
