Expensive. Charged for tasting, camping was poor with site just along a noisy highway. The petroglyfts were so so, the labyrinth was a joke The staff were very nice, the wines were good. We bought several bottles.

What an amazing find. Engaging staff and wonderful wines. Nice intimate setting and welcoming atmosphere. Better than Vivac further north. A nice drive north as well along the Rio Grand river up to Taos.

Planned a tour of the winery today, I have always loved their products. However they were closed, so advice...check the web site before driving over there. I'm sure they will continue to produce excellent wines and I will return and try it again!

Stopped here on our way to Taos. Great place to stop. They have many good wins. But we choose the reds. We were not disappointed. Our server Scott his wines and Aldo a lot of the local area. They also can ship to many states.
