Owner description: Love wine & wine tasting? Estrella Del Norte Vineyard is Santa Fe's #1 vineyard / winery destination! Located just 15 minutes north of Santa Fe on US84/285 and then east less than a mile on the High Road to Taos (NM503). This beautiful pinot noir vineyard estate is the authentic Santa Fe experience visitors are seeking and the gateway to an array of award-winning northern New Mexico wines. Beautiful sculpture gardens, wind chimes in the breeze, a fun rustic tasting room converted from a former hay barn with a knowledgeable, friendly staff make Estrella Del Norte Vineyard a great place to spend an afternoon or to enjoy a fun winery event. Preview their list of summer cooking classes, vineyard dinners with Santa Fe's top chefs, and other fun events. Looking to enjoy a weekend getaway? Ask about their vineyard casitas. Play, Stay and Wine! Salud!

Vineyard owner Eileen and her husband were very knowledgeable with excellent wines. Especially the "Holy Mole" wine (Chocolate and Chilis).

“New Mexico wines have really improved”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Spontaneous stop traveling from Chimayo back to Santa Fe - just a quick turn off SR 503. Eileen and her brilliant smile toured us thru the property's onsite vineyard, pear and apple orchard, 2 bedroom casita-for-rent, informed us about their wine pairing themed dinners, and served as our wine tasting guide. These wines have a LOT of personality, may or may not appeal to everyone- but snobby wine-o-phobes will really appreciate what the winemakers are creating. Eileen will be very helpful in suggesting tastings that will suit your palate.

What will appeal without fail is the setting, which Eileen and her husband have created out of a former horse farm. Fun wine accessory shopping. Between the tasting and the site, Estrella is truly special.

“Beautiful setting, mediocre wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We stopped by here on a girls weekend trip to Santa Fe. The winery and tasting room is in a beautiful setting. The grounds are gorgeous and the garden out back and patio areas are a great place to relax in the afternoon. The only negative thing I found was the wines themselves. To us, they tasted cheap and watered down, lacking that full flavor I find in a good bottle of wine. We opted not to purchase any wine, but still found the $6 per person tasting fee worthwhile because of the beautiful setting.

“New Mexico Wine Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We recently visited the Santa Fe Wine Festival and stopped by this vineyard as part of our trip. Apart from having great tasting wines, the two ladies that attended to us were very friendly and informative about their wines. Living in Las Vegas and being a frequent visitor to Napa and other California wineries, this vineyard was on par in ambience with some of the more boutique wineries there. I highly recommend stopping by Estrella Del Norte if you have a chance. We brought back about 8 of their different wines so that we could have a New Mexico wine event here at home to introduce these wines to our Nevadan friends.

“Super friendly service, great wine and relaxing atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We took the short drive north of Santa Fe to this winery, which is easy to find following their online directons. We had been walking all day in the heat, so I was pretty tired, and didn't want to stand at the tables for the wine tasting. They were super sweet and brought the wines out to us on the patio and answered all our questions. Several were really good, and the Holy Mole was quite different with a kick! We ordered several bottles to be shipped back home. Because we were near Chimayo, they even offered to make dinner reservations for us - very nice people, so be sure to check it out.
