  • A beautiful space tucked away in the New Mexico countryside surrounded by breathtaking scenery. The staff provide a full bodied experience that is complete with high quality wine. I would highly recommend this spot for great wine and company.
  • This place was so magical! Lovely outdoor area where we got to sip some wine and enjoy the sunshine. Loved their Viognier and also the Port is delicious!! You’ve gotta stop in if you get the chance!
  • Beautiful location! Tried some great wines. Only downside is we didn't have anything to cleanse the pallet after each tasting. But we also didn't ask. Will def return!
  • Welcoming place with great wines and Ellen's superb ceramics. The Rio Embudo Red is very fine and great value.
  • Well worth the trip off the highway. It's tucked back off a gravel driveway. The hostess is super friendly and knowledgeable, and the wine is worth every penny. They'll also let you sample as much as you like. Well definitely be back.
