New Mexico’s wine region is famous for being the oldest wine producing region in the United States. Its interesting and colorful history has led to what is fast becoming a prominent producer of quality wines. A resurgence of wine making, in the early 1970s, has created established vineyards and talented wine makers from around the world.
The fertile Rio Grande Valley, with its warm, dry climate, creates ideal conditions for wine making today, much as it did in the late 1500s when Franciscan monks planted the first root stock near what is now San Antonio, New Mexico. So, grab your favorite glass and enjoy what Wines of New Mexico is serving today.
