Hopefully the new year has been a good one for you and yours. Time has been moving too quickly at Nevada Sunset Winery here in Reno. The ski season finally kicked in for those of you hitting The Reno/Tahoe region to make some turns…may those ski days be frequent. From the NV Sunset perspective, spring seems to be coming at us quickly. With that said, there are several events we are greatly looking forward to including the including our Cookies and Wines fundraiser for the Girl Scouts, February 24 from 3pm-7pm at the winery on E 4th St.; Tour de Brews, scheduled for March 17, further details to follow; and The Northern Nevada Celtic Ceilidh scheduled for May 18 from 12m-8pm and happening at Nevada Sunset Winery. Follow us on social for the more immediate updates and further information. Cheers!

A little about Nevada Sunset Winery:
Kate Boyle MacDonald and Craig MacDonald are the new owners after purchasing the winery from founders Mike Steedman and Alynn Delisle. Both Mike and Alynn worked hard to enact the change necessary to allow for wine production to begin in both Washoe and Clark Counties. As a result, Nevada Sunset Winery was the first wine production facility in Washoe County and Kate and Craig are excited and honored to continue to make and offer wonderful wines in Reno.

With over 25 years of vineyard farming and winemaking experience, Kate Boyle MacDonald brings a wealth of knowledge to the up and coming Brewery District in Downtown Reno. Her winemaking roots began in the charming town of Murphys, California, where her and husband Craig still own and operate Boyle MacDonald Wines. From humble beginnings as an apprentice/cellar hand in 1999 to a now seasoned Winemaker, Kate’s talents have always been obvious. With a strong work ethic and a woman’s patience, she demonstrated excellent winemaking instincts and a remarkable palate, and was quickly acknowledged by her peers and allowed to thrive in Calaveras County. Additionally, Kate personally planted and has tended the family estate vineyard in Napa Valley over the last 20 years, ever increasing her winemaking knowledge while guaranteeing herself access to world class Cabernets to accompany the wonderful fruit of the Sierra Foothills.

Kate and Craig are incredibly enthusiastic about making Reno their new family home and hope to add to this wonderful city’s ever growing list of producers, artist, and lifestyle enthusiast.

This website is undergoing considerable change but we will try to keep it at least updated with the latest happening at the winery. During the 2023 Harvest we will operate the tasting room with limited hours, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 3-7pm. Please call/text 775-899-4027 or email katenvsw@gmail.com with any questions. Also please do not hesitate to contact us regarding private tastings and or special events requests. If we are not busy fermenting we will make every effort to accommodate you.

We look forward to hosting you, cheers!
