Guide to Wineries in New Mexico

0

Summer is here! It’s time to break out the wine glasses and prepare for those perfect New Mexico evenings.

Did you know that New Mexico has a wine history dating back almost 400 years? New Mexico vintners have perfected the art of winemaking, and it’s time for us to enjoy the fruits of their labor. With more than 50 wineries and tasting rooms in the state, we’ve compiled a guide of wineries you can visit this summer.


We want to thank St. Clair Wine for sponsoring this Guide to Wineries in New Mexico.

For nearly 40 years, St. Clair wines have been crafted in the stunning high deserts of southern New Mexico.

Some might think growing grapes in the desert is impossible. But the Lescombes family are sixth-generation winemakers that know the lands of southern New Mexico offer the perfect alchemy of sun, soil, and soul for grapes that perfectly distill the essence of New Mexico into a glass of wine.

Their selection of award-winning red, white, and sparkling varietals offers wine drinkers a taste of New Mexico unlike any other.

Wineries in Albuquerque

D.H. Lescombes Winery & Bistro

901 Rio Grande Blvd. NW #B100

If wine paired with a great dinner is what you’re looking for, try D.H. Lescombes (formerly St. Clair Winery & Bistro). With an amazing menu and two beautiful patios, this winery is a perfect place for date night or girls’ night out! St. Clair Wines are delicious to have at home as well. Look for their beautiful new label in stores soon.


Casa Rondeña Winery

733 Chavez Rd.

Want to see where your wine comes from before it makes it to your glass? Casa Rondeña Winery may be your pick. Drive through the vineyard on your way to a gorgeous patio and a delicious restaurant! Pro Tip: ask about the 1629 Club while you’re here.


Gruet Winery

8400 Pan American Freeway N.E.

If you’re looking for a more traditional wine-tasting outing, Gruet Winery is your place. Gruet Winery focuses on sparkling wines so bring on the bubbly!


Noisy Water Winery

301 Romero St.

Located in the heart of Old Town, this is a perfect place to taste a variety of wines on a summer afternoon. Try the cheese plate with Relleno Bros. salsa if you’re in the mood for a snack with your wine.


Sheehan Winery

1544 Cerro Vista Rd. SW.

Practically next door to Noisy Water, Sheehan Winery is a natural next stop while in Old Town. One of my favorite things about Sheehan was the person behind the pour.
The team at Sheehan is passionate about you experiencing the wine, not just tasting it.


Vara Winery & Distillery

315 Alameda Blvd. NE

With an outdoor patio and delicious tapas (guys, the fried green chile bombas!?), Vara Winery is a great place to have a glass of Tempranillo and enjoy a summer afternoon.
Vara Winery also offers guided wine tastings for those who wish to learn about and taste wines not normally offered by the glass.
