Whiskey Run Creek
Bob Curttright knew that wine tasted better when it's enjoyed in a scenic setting. That's why he set out on a search for the perfect setting before opening his winery, Whiskey Run Creek. He found the setting he dreamed of in a century-old barn owned by Julius Bergmann and moved the historic structure—which was built from oak and walnut beams without a single nail—more than 18 miles to a creekside property.
Now owned by Ron and Sherry Heskett, they fill visitors' glasses with wine made from Nebraska-grown ingredients. In addition to varietals, such as Chambourcin and Edelweiss, their winery produces seasonal fruit wines made with apples and cherries from local farms. Guests can relax with their wine on an expansive deck or explore renovated brick caves built in 1866.

“This is our favorite winery! It's in such a neat building, and the wine is the best we've had for local Nebraska breweries. Browneville is such a neat, historic town. It's worth the trip. The owner is generally working, and he's so nice.”
“Great wine, great atmosphere. This groupon is a steal. ”
