New Mexican wines

Posted by JRomeo, Jul 27, 2010.

Hi All:

I am going to be in New Mexico for the Annual NM Wine Festival later this summer. Truth is, I have not had the opportunity to try any of the wines from this region. Does anyone have any experience and/or recommendations to share on these wines? Thanks in advance for your help.

I have some friends who'll never let me live down the fact that I brought a PS to a dinner one time.  One guy guessed that it was from somewhere in the southwest where "they shouldn't even be making wine".  I was stupefied by his guess and as usual, he was right. But it wasn't bad.  And they make decent sparkling wine there too.  Cool festival to go to!

You ought to chase down some Gruet sparkling before you go to the festival (a French winemaking family transplanted to New Mexico, very good QPR). Nice way to get in the mood...

New Mexico is the oldest wine growing region in the United States. We about 45 wineries in the state.  We have been winning awards in national and international wine competitions. Lynda Burd, Co-Owner, Black Mesa Winery

Greetings from the Land of Enchantment! Gruet does make excellant sparklers. But St. Clair Winery in Deming has made many award winning wines also. Try anything from D.H Lescombes Winery. Santa Fe Vineyards make some very nice wines. Also comes to mind is Heart of the Desert Winery. And I must admit Black Mesa does make some very nice wines. Keep up the good work Linda! Cheers!

Thanks! We just bottled our '09 Viognier, and our '09 Malvasia Bianca today.  Our '08 Woodnymph Riesling won a Gold at Finerlakes this year.
