Washoe grape growers want Nevada to OK wineries

August 19, 2014

Grape growers in Washoe County plan to lobby legislators next year to update a state law which prohibits them from making and selling wine. Current law allows wineries in smaller counties, and the Nevada Wine Coalition, the new political action committee, argues that Nevada has an opportunity to foster a multi-billion dollar wine industry if it lets Washoe and Clark counties participate.
