hurchill Vineyards is located in a target area where the United States Fish & Wildlife Service (USF&WS) has been purchasing farms. (USF&WS) has purchased several farms and removed over 20,000 acre feet of water in Churchill County to “preserve” wildlife. Seven (7) farms within a two mile radius of Churchill Vineyards have been purchased by USF&WS. The Farmsteads, homes, corrals, ditches, fences, etc are unoccupied and decaying on all seven USF&WS properties surrounding Churchill Vineyards. Wildlife has no feed after water rights are removed and fertile farmland is abandoned. In our opinion USF&WS has not considered the benefits farmers provide to wildlife habitat areas within Churchill County. Noxious weeds are growing in fields once planted to alfalfa. The underground water table is diminishing and neighboring domestic wells are drying up. There is no longer any economic value to the farmland USF&WS has acquired. When farmland water rights are permanently removed wildlife and citizens do not benefit. Churchill County’s property tax base is being seriously affected. Abandoned homes have been vandalized and most are completely destroyed. Retaining and preserving water rights on farm land is very important to preserving Nevada agriculture, wildlife habitats, and property tax values in Churchill County.



For the past ten years owners of Churchill Vineyards have been working to identify a high valued alternative crop which consumes less water in an effort to reclaim abandoned farmland in Churchill County. Your support will help Churchill Vineyards rebuild Nevada’s agriculture industry.



Churchill Vineyards is Nevada’s jewel attempting to create a new viticulture industry by planting fine wine grapes which consume only one ten the water hay and grain crops consume. Churchill Vineyards has reclaimed fertile farmland by planting high valued crops which consume less water. Churchill Vineyards is attempting to create a new viticulture industry for Nevada’s benefit. Churchill Vineyards is enhancing Nevada’s economy, providing feed for wildlife, promoting Nevada’s tourism industry, conserving Nevada’s water resources, and sustaining Nevada’s agriculture industry. Churchill Vineyards appreciates your support in this effort.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
