“Great Dolcetto”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Winery location was not very attractive compared to other similar wineries but the young girl serving us was very friendly and made our visit very nice. This was the only winery that offered us free tastings and we ended up buying a delicious Dolcetto that I can't wait to open up for a special dinner.

“Always excellent”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This is our fourth or fifth time to La Chiripada. Love the wines, especially the whites. The special reserve Riesling is tremendous. Always a friendly tasting session. I heartily recommend La Chiripada to anyone. We take someone new there every year - never heard anyone say anything but good things. Enjoy!

“Very nice wine”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

The wine was excellent. We kept to reds.and were very pleased with the tasting. We purchased a few bottles...some to enjoy during the Taos trip and others to take home. The tasting room manager was very friendly. We will return. They ship...so buy!!!

“Relaxed, Accommodating”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

It's worth finding and driving to, hidden in the beautiful canyons of Northern New Mexico. The wine maker opened the tasting room for our group of six (he was officially closed, making a New Year's Eve dinner for a friend...but forgot to change the "open" sign). That fact made it welcoming. The winemaker is knowledgeable, good wines, and even though we were somewhat rushed, he took his time to let us sample. We bought 3 bottles (speaks for the quality of the place and wine), enjoyed the brief moment, and let him get back to his dinner and we to our Taos destination.

“Low Key...Good Wine!”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

We really like taking an afternoon to visit La Chirapada. The winery and tasting room is a very cool, old adobe compound with a very unpretentious and approachable tasting room. The tastings are free and the wine is spectacular! Certainly will continue to visit this great winery!
