Nevada is gambling that homegrown wines can be successfully produced in the deserts out West.

In fact, the University of Nevada’s College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources has been testing different wine grapes suited to Nevada to find the best varieties suited to the warm days and cool nights of the desert.

Some have adapted better than others, but promising results have so far been seen with Cabernet Franc, White Riesling, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and others.

Ready to become a pioneer of Nevada wine? Luck is on your side as more and more people discover the newest up-and-coming wine regions in the Sagebrush State.
