If you love good wine do not miss this tour and tasting it was awesome. It is locally owned by a young couple just getting started and they were so gracious and appreciative of all that came. I learned so much about the winery and the process! if your a WINE-O must see and do.

We were looking for something to do for a few hours when we arrived in Albuquerque for the night and found this winery near our hotel. What a find! Beautiful grounds with interesting history (you can just feel it as you walk through the beautiful building and grounds). Relaxing with a nice glass of wine in the warm sunny quiet... More

My husband and I stopped here one night this week while we were on our normal date night. The atmosphere was lovely and as soon as we walked through the door we were warmly greeted. While we were there we each did a tasting and then we both had a glass of wine. Because of the late hour we didn't... More

Casa Rondena Winery is one of the most elegant attractions of the Albuquerque area, and it's largely undiscovered -- as yet. But its reputation is growing. Whether or not you're an oenophile (I hope I spelled that right) it's worth a tour.

Fabulous wines. So worth a visit. BUT...the blonde woman pouring for the tasting seemed like she could not give a damn. Such a drag when it appears someone doesn't seem to enjoy their job. Lifeless. Bored. I didn't mind the small pours but wow the woman behind the counter representing the winery was a zombie. I don't need a song... More

I took out of town visitors for a wine tasting. In the past I have frequently recommended Casa Rodena as an outing and at one time was a member of their wine club. I was appalled that the tasting were so minuscule. Barely a sip of each one. Not much to taste and compare. Too bad because they have some... More

This was some of the best wine I've had in awhile. Some were better than others, but it was worth the visit. We got there when they first opened so it was just two of us. After about an hour, there were about 12-15 people. The young lady behind the counter was attentive and informative. The winery is very nice... More

My husband and I are regulars at Casa Rondena and love it. The grounds and pond are lovely. The people are friendly and make a real effort to make each visit a pleasant one, even when the tasting room is packed. This is a beautiful place to stop by for a tasting, then get a glass and just sit and... More

This is not as I remember - the wine tastings are $10 and the pours are the smallest I have ever seen. We were started with reds then moved to whites which is the wrong order for tasting. The server kept spilling the wine as she poured us our thimble sized tastings. Then she was on the phone and forgot... More

Not the oldest winery in N.M., but one of its best, particularly if you are looking for red wines. The Meritage is an excellent example of blending of the Bourdeaux grapes. The Clarion and 1629 (date of the first Spanish planting) use the same three grapes but the blending percentages produce different but wonderful Spanish influenced wines. And the Cabernet... More
