Our neighbors southeast of us in Texas have a bigger reputation for wine, but New Mexico wineries are actually part of the oldest wine-growing region in the country. When you think about it, that shouldn’t be too surprising, given the long and diverse history of cities like Santa Fe, once a major point of cultural convergence and an epicenter of trade.
There are some big names among New Mexico wineries, like Gruet, a famed sparkling wine producer. But for every winery you’ve heard of, there are at least a few you haven’t – and discovering these hidden gems makes a trip to New Mexico wineries so wonderful. You can enjoy delicious afternoon tastings without the huge crowds you’d encounter in more popular wine destinations like Texas and California.
Wine tasting certainly is one of the more delicious things to do in New Mexico this winter, but it’s definitely not the only thing waiting in the Land of Enchantment. Unlike some parts of the country, winter is a fantastic time to visit us. The only thing we haven’t mentioned that will make your trip even better is staying at our New Mexico Bed and Breakfast.
