  • The gentleman serving wine when we stopped by was wonderful, friendly, and interesting. The tasting room and outdoor sitting area were beautiful. But it's with great regret that I admit that these are the worst wines I've ever tasted - and I tasted about 10 of the wines since I was with a group. Not a single wine was palatable, among wide-ranging varietals, both red and white. Every single wine tasted bizarrely sour, almost tasting of ammonia, and I wasn't alone in that opinion. I don't know if the argon they used to seal the bottles had this effect, or they let some wines get way too hot, or even maybe some wild yeast somehow infected all of their wines, but it was really, really bad wine. I even like sour beer, but this stuff was just undrinkable. I find it impossible to believe these wines won medals in competitions if it was what I drank when I visited. I really wish I liked it, I drive by the winery pretty often.
  • One of the best wine yard in New Mexico. You can enjoy tasting at counter.
  • This is the greatest place! Tremendous selection of wine, cider and gifts, a really warm, friendly gift shop and tasting room with nice offerings, and a terrific staff. As if that weren't enough, the owners are really great people who care about the community.
  • We stopped by after a long hike and it was amazing! There's a wine tasting for $8, or wines by the glass. It's a bit on the pricier side, but very delicious (we've been burned by local wines before). There's a lot of variety, from a plethora of reds to whites to roses to even cider and beers on tap. There's the resident cat and a wonderful atmosphere! We got to keep our wine glass and ended up purchasing a whole bottle. Would come back again!
  • Spendy but seems to my inexperienced palate to be pretty good hooch. Gracious hosts. Recommended.
