Loved these New Mexico Wines!

This is one of the best vineyards and winery I've ever been to. New Mexico seems like an unlikely place to find good wine, but I'd read somewhere once that all 50 states in the US produce wine, so when I found myself in New Mexico for work-related purposes, I was eager to find some local wines. I wanted to... More

We arrived about 30 minutes before they closed thinking we could check out a few wines and then drive on. We ended up staying about quite a bit longer. We were fortunate to get there at a time that the owner and winemaker was there. We learned a lot of things we didn't know and tasted some wonderful wines. We... More

Although we appreciate your great review, Tamara, you may have us confused. We do not have a restaurant on site, as we are a winery and tasting room only. More

When we called to book we were surprised to find out that the winery was closed. However, the owner was amazing and agreed to open up and... More

Love the view of the Organ Mountains! You can sit out on the patio and relax after a very interesting and informative tour with the owner. We're not wine drinkers (came with a tour group), so my review is limited, but still enjoyed the tasting and the experience.

Stopped in Mesilla on our cross country road trip. We were shocked to learn that New Mexico does wines. We're even more shocked that these were some of the best wines we have ever tasted! We learned that the first vineyards in the us were planted in NM. Think: wines as good as those in CA minus any level of... More

Such beautiful views!!! From the vineyard out front and along side the winery to the back veranda/patio, this was a gorgeous setting. The downside was that the wines were just okay. About 3 of the 5 wines I tried tasted very similar to one another and the pours were very small. The inside was very cute with a nice bar... More

Amazing scenery - perfect way to relax and enjoy an evening and a glass of vine! Wine selection was smaller than I prefer, but I enjoyed a glass out on the back patio with live music and a fantastic view of the mountains!
