Casa Abril

Casa Abril produces wines using Spanish and Argentinian grapes of Tempranillo and ​Malbec varieties. The grapes are grown in rural Algodones, located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Casa Abril continues the Spanish traditions brought to New Mexico centuries ago.

Casa Rondena Winery

Nestled in the heart of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. Wines are crafted from the grapes grown right on the winery's grounds and range from dry whites to Syrahs and reds. You can taste their award-winning wines in the tasting room and enjoy a stroll through the grounds, or have a glass on the patio.

Corrales Winery

This family owned winery produces award winning Muscat Canelli dessert wine with their own grapes. Other wines are produced from New Mexico grapes to become Rieslings, Mariachis, and Cabernets. Found in the heart of the historic village of Corrales, the area is one of the oldest wine growing regions in North America. Visit the winery and stay on to shop in the village, which features fine arts and crafts.
