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

I lived in Albuquerque for 17 years and never found this gem. While visiting my sister for Balloon Fiesta, we were looking for a winery to visit and found this one!!! The tasting room itself is small, but very nice, but the adjoining rooms are wonderful with sofas and chairs - very spacious!! Then there is the outdoor seating!! All... More

Checked out this little quaint place while in ABQ, and it was like stepping into Napa Valley or Spain, as the vineyard is on site and the buildings are all old Spanish Architecture. The Tasting Room Ladies were very friendly and made everyone feel comfortable. Even more fun to sit around on the property in back by the pond and... More

Casa Rondena is amazing. Don’t think it is just about wine tasting in the entrance as you walk in. Purchase a glass and or a bottle and venture further back in to the building. Go ahead – you’re allowed. As you exit the back of the building (though the big great room – better have your glass of wine and... More

On a busy day Chris and Kristen did everything they could to make our visit the best possible. We are grateful to them and our trip was magical!

Lovely wines and great service! We were taken here by our friends when we visited New Mexico for the first time and we were surprised how great the wine is. Kris and Cristen were awesome at the bar!

We were in town for the balloon fiesta and our good friends said we couldn't miss this winery. I had no idea that New Mexico produced such awesome wines! Kris and Cristen were awesome during our tasting. The cab franc is my favorite wine of theirs.

We have been coming here for 4 years and have always had great service and great times. Perfect for bringing visitors or just hanging out on their back patio with the great views and comfortable seating. Cristin and Kris are some of the best servers in town!
