Just about an hour northwest of Vegas lies the town of Pahrump. There, you will find a few small casinos, and a little gem of a desert winery. As you get close to town, the signs direct you off of the highway and into a little subdivision. Once you are sure you took the wrong turn, you'll see the entrance to the winery. You'll enter into the little shop area, which also houses the wine tasting area. We were about a half hour early for the first of the three daily tours, so we did the wine tasting first - they allow you seven samples from their long list of options - some made from the grapes at the winery, others from imported grapes. The ladies behind the bar were very gracious in discussing the wines. Then, we took the tour, which lasted about 20 minutes. We saw the grounds, then the trophy room, and had it not been for the work they were doing, we would have gotten in the production area.

All in all, this is an interesting diversion from Vegas - if you're into wineries, or just food tours in general, this is a neat little trip. The side trip along Red Rock Canyon to get there has some really nice scenery as well.
