Nevada Vines and Wines was initiated to promote viticulture and winemaking in Northern Nevada. We are partnering with individuals, groups and the University of Nevada, Reno to promote our vision. In the spring of 2013, we planted 1800 Riesling wine vines at UNR’s Main Station Farm. Our ultimate goal is to plant additional acres with different varieties and to establish a commercial winery, with substantial proceeds going back to the University.
Nevada Vines & Wines operates as a non profit cooperative and will fianance its work through charitable donations, grants and cooperative sales, training, winemaking and consulting activities.
