Wine snobs, cover your ears. The history of wine in New Mexico predates even the French Revolution, and the state is home to the first vineyards in the United States. The state’s wine culture combines the world’s best varietals with local expertise on cultivation, leaving connoisseurs around the world thirsting for more. Unlike some other wine regions that depend on transplanted grapes, New Mexico’s vines have been developed over centuries, with the grapes uniquely shaped by the landscape. Ready for a sip? At the Corrales Winery you can taste their Cabernet Sauvignon as you take in the views of the Sandia Mountains, while there are wine tours throughout the state and food and wine events throughout the year.
