New Mexico Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of New Mexico? Then look for a a New Mexico Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local New Mexico wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. New Mexico has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like Albuquerque, Farmington, Santa Fe
and Taos, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of NM wines. Many specialize in fine NM wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like Ruidoso Wine Festival in June,
Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta in September, or Albuquerque Wine
Festival in May, you may find wines from Diosviejos Winery, La Vina
Winery, Inc., Black Mesa Winery, Anasazi Fields Winery, and many
others at New Mexico wine festivals. In addition to wine, these
events can include excellent food to sample, prepared by local restaurants
and chefs. And often you can expect music too. After all, nothing
pairs better with wine than a little Jazz, or Blue Grass music.
Local musicians are out playing their best music to accompany the
wine tasting. Whether you're visiting Las Cruces, Hatch, Roswell
and Cloudcroft you can find a local wine, food and music festival
that will perfect your NM vacation. The most popular time of year
for these festivals are the Fall and Summer months, but they are
also scheduled during holiday months as well. Imagine sipping some
great wines while watching the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony!
So although, you may not have time to visit all of New
Mexico's great wineries, you can taste their wines at these
great events. So get out and enjoy! As always, Wine Bar Wineries
