This wine has been aged in custom French Oak barrels for 38 months. It truly shines as one of the great wines of the Midwest. It has fruit forward flavors of lemon grass and pear with smooth vanilla overtones and has a clean and crisp finish.
The wine is named in honor of our owners father, F. Joseph O'Neill. His strong demeanor and soft heart are well represented in this great Nebraska wine.
You can never go wrong by serving a bottle of our Ringneck Red. This medium bodied wine provides a smooth and light finish. This wine is deceiving as it is dry (no residual sugar left) but the fruit forward flavors of the DeChaunac grape provide wonderful aromas of dark cherry and plum.
Buffalo Wallow is a semi-sweet white is made with LaCrescent grapes that grow wonderfully in our vineyard. They impart the wine with a dominant flavor of lemongrass to go with other fruit notes. Buffalo Wallow has a nice astringency that balances the sweetness to create a lovely finish that doesn't overpower.
A buffalo wallow is started by buffalo pawing the dry dirt to break up the grass surface. The animals would then roll in the dirt to dust themselves for fly and mosquito control. Over time,the wallows became muddy, the mud acting as even more effective insect control. Today, wallows are seldom found due to farm land cultivation and urban development. The rare buffalo wallow with its large, rounded indentations is the only evidence left of a time when buffalo roamed our prairies freely.
Edelweiss is a Semi-Sweet white wine, made from a Nebraska grape. Comparable to a Riesling it has more intense fruit flavors of peach and apricot as well as melon aromas that complement the smooth finish.

The wine label represents the McFarland Family cattle brand used by Dale "Bud" McFarland, father to owner Max McFarland. He loved his big Stetson hats and so in his honor a Stetson hat is placed hanging off the corner of the brand. To understand the name of the wine you must move ahead three generations to co-owner Barry McFarland. When a little boy Barry could not pronounce the word Grandpa so instead of of referring to Grandpa Bud he called him Poncu... and the name has stuck. Poncu is not available in stores and must be purchased at the estate winery.
So what is Port wine? Port is a fortified wine. Fortified wines are made by adding a proportion of grape spirit, or brandy, to the wine at some point during the production process.
