Adopt-a-Vine and make your own wine:

Per our mission statement, to promote and expand the presence of Vineyards and Wine Making in our community. They will be starting a new Adopt -a-Vine program at Bill and Joe’s vineyards and at future vineyards, to be added as needed. Their school will be teaching from the basics of growing grapes to making the wine. It will be a class from, ground to vine, and from vine to bottle. We will welcome any and all who are interested in growing grapes or making wine to check us out. Stay tuned… More information to come. All participants must be a member of NV & W.
Bulk Vine Purchase:
Nevada Vines & Wines is offering a group buying opportunity of new vines this year. Many of you already know that the nurseries prefer to see vines in batches of 25 or more. Group buying allows us to pool orders. If you are interested in participating, please forward your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Sheryl at 775-342-3714 if you have any questions. Joe Bernardo has graciously offered to pool the orders. Orders must be received by February 15. Joe will not know exact prices till we have a count of each type of vines orders. They run approximately $2.50 per vine. If you want vine shelters, they are about 40 cents each.
