Reno Tahoe is enjoying the welcome of Washoe County’s first winery! Nevada Sunset Winery currently manages a 3-acre vineyard in Fallon, receiving additional grapes from Yerington, the Minden area and northern California. Mike Steedman opened Nevada Sunset Winery with the idea of having an alternating proprietorship with Basin & Range Wines and Great Basin Winery. Though state law would not allow such a partnership, both wineries are producing varietals that will be ready for your glass in early 2018.
In other news regarding brews and booze, a new brewery-distillery and a barcade have also set up shop in Reno. The Mill Street Still and Brew opened in September 2017 and is home to a state-of-the-art brewery and vacuum-distilled spirits.
