Having moved to El Paso, TX, trying to explore Day Trip options...and this is wonderful! Enjoy mid morning in Old Mesilla, NM, then down the road is this winery.

The owner is laid-back and very knowledgeable. Fun Fact, did you know New Mexico had wineries 140 years BEFORE California? During the wine tasing learned a lot, and the wines are good quality (I was surprised).

If you're looking for food, this isn't the place. They have cheese and sausage, but that's it. Focus on the wine, then head back to Old Mesilla for food.

I will be back!

We had spent the early afternoon in the Mesilla village and had made our way down Hwy 28, in search of Pecan farms. But when we stumble upon a vineyard, we try to always go in for a tasting. Rio Grande is situated at the base of the mountains and the view from the tasting room really is spectacular. The price of a tasting is, in my opinion, very reasonable and the grapes are all locally grown. It is a true family affair. We brought 3 bottles home with us, but should have brought more as they did not last very long. If you are in the Mesilla village and enjoy wine, make sure to venture down the hwy just a bit. The staff is very friendly and the wine is simply amazing!
