Introducing… Cabernet Sauvingnon 2018!

The 2017 Cabernet was a huge success and has completely sold out of our cellar. Before you have time to mourn, we would like to introduce you to the 2018 Cabernet Reserve. Six barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon and one barrel of Ruby Cabernet make up this commanding vintage of the worlds’ favorite grape.

To help you all get better acquainted, we are launching our new vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon for 10% off 6 bottles or 15% off 12 bottles.

Valid through October 31st 2020.


2020 has been the most unpredictable year that we have seen in our 40 years of business. The one thing that has not changed is our harvest season. Whether we have a bumper crop or just scrape by, the month of August is the busiest time of year. Here is a sneak peak from picking our grapes in the Rio Embudo Valley.

Our Limited Edition Tempranillo is back!!

It’s been a loooong 3 months but now our Tempranillo is back!! Our 2018 vintage is bursting with dark cherries and blackberries, with a touch of pink peppercorn. Once again it’s a limited edition so don’t miss out!
Order from our online shop today or call us on 1-800-528-7801.

New Releases this month!!

Spring is just around the corner! Why not celebrate early with two of our new release wines:

Our Late Harvest Riesling is back! Harvested exclusively from the Embudo Valley here in northern New Mexico, this dramatically fruity and provocative dessert wine should be enjoyed with good company!

Our Dolcetto 2017 vintage recalls ripe blackberries, almond and a floral bouquet. Enjoy the balanced tannic structure, light body and full mid-palate feel of black cherry and rich soil with an elegant finish.
