Great wines start with great fruit — at least that’s the ethos of the impassioned makers at Artesian Cellars. Nestled alongside the Spring Mountains in the heart of the Death Valley-bordering community of Pahrump, this fast and easy 30 minute trip off the Las Vegas Strip promises award winning varietals grown right here in Nevada’s Mojave Desert. Harvesting more than 8 combined tons of Nevada grapes from vineyards in all corners of the Silver State, settle into Artesian Cellars’ on-site tasting room with a glass of Barbera, Syrah, or Viognier and get to know what Pahrump’s burgeoning winery scene is all about.
With a longstanding agricultural background, business know-how, and a deep-rooted passion for the wine industry, winemaker Tim Burke helped launch Artesian Cellars in 2019. As one of the newest wineries added to Pahrump’s growing roster, the history of the winery is small but mighty, thanks to an impressive line-up of award-winning wines. No matter what flavor palette you’re looking to satisfy, Artesian Cellars is more than likely to deliver, pouring Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Primitivo, Gewurztraminer, Malbec, Riesling, and everything in between.
Get in on a free tour of the winery, then toast to an adventure-packed day discovering the Death Valley Rally alongside other wine lovers in the on-site tasting room. Best yet, this Pahrump winery offers great small bites, savory paninis, flatbread pizzas and dessert specials that pair perfectly with wine tastings. Take advantage of Happy Hour specials like the $5 Wine Slushies, and $5 glasses of Wild West Wines, along with a special Desert Happy Hour menu offered Monday through Thursday from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
