“The sparkling wine is the star here”
Review of Gruet Winery

Having a decade of experience in drinking Gruet, I was excited to hit the winery while in Albuquerque. And once again, Gruet produces some great sparkling wine, especially for the price. The winery has some non-vintage and vintage stuff I'd not had, so that made it well worth doing. The tasting itself (the server, the pace, etc) left something to be desired, so as an experience it wasn't all that hot. Go for the wine.

Convivial small bar, very good value for the various groups/flights of wine, pleasant staff but no explanation as to why and how this family champagne business ended up in NM. That was the question I have has since trying the sparkling wine in NY several years ago and there was no answer here. Some photos on the wall in the hall to the bathrooms and that was really it. Saw some of the wines in a local super market the next day for 5 to 15 pct less. Convenient location, but then again, so is the local super market. However the two groups at the bar were having a ball, so it comes down to what you're looking for.

The people running this tasting room have great knowledge of their wines and the wine making process here. Not to mention that the sparkling wines are quite delicious. There are no fields to look at, as the grapes are grown in a more amenable location ( for wine grapes), about 150 miles south along the Rio Grande. A friendly place I always stop at when in Albuquerque.
