In 2000, a group of farmers decided to diversify their crop production by planting twirling wine grapes into the rolling Midwestern hills. The initial smattering of vines quickly grew into a 4-acre vineyard and led to the launch of Silver Hills Vineyards & Winery, a small operation intent on crafting 100% Nebraska wines. The vintners’ Midwestern pride can be seen in their choice of ingredients—all wines are made with fruit grown at local vineyards and tattooed with the state motto—as well as their choice of decor: the outdoor tasting deck is shaped like Nebraska.
Silver Hills produces red, white, rosé, and berry wines, which visitors can sample during the vineyards’ limited hours on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Bottle labels display woodcuts by John Schirmer, a resident of neighboring Iowa who has carved wood professionally for more than 35 years.
It's hard to miss Wooden Windmill when driving down Broad Street. That's because, true to its name, there's a two-story wooden windmill at the front of the building. According to an article in the Fremont Tribune, the restaurant's previous owners bought this vintage contraption at a Silver Creek auction in 1982 and had it hauled to their eatery. The current owners made some renovations to add a party room in the actual windmill, making it a truly unique dining spot in the area.
