Welcome to NightHawk
Vineyard & Winery

Enjoy the bounty of this boutique, Midwest winery – tucked away in the rich farmlands of Kansas. NightHawk creates hand-produced, artisan wines served up within a charming and rustic setting. Visit our tasting room, linger under the arbor, enjoy a live music event, or bring a picnic and relax by a quiet pond among the native prairie grass.

Enjoy Free Wine Tastings within a serene and beautiful setting.
NightHawk offers a range of locally-grown and produced artisan wines – from a delectable dessert to a full-bodied red. Join us for wine tastings every weekend except open except Christmas, New Year's and Easter.

Experience a perfect day trip.
Combine an outing with other agritourism destinations such as our neighbors Sommerset, Middlecreek, and White Wind Wineries – part of Miami County's Somerset Wine Trail. Travel south of Paola and off the beaten path (and a bit of gravel) you'll find a little jewel called NightHawk Winery. Directions.

NightHawk is more than just wine.
"When we first winter camped on this property 20 years ago we wanted to create a destination for new and old friends. From building our own strawbale home with the help of neighbors and friends to the planting, harvesting, and bottling of wine – it's truly been a labor of love. Visit and discover for yourself why we fell in love with this land and share a glass of NightHawk wine."

– Don and Cathy Warring
