Chrirpada (good fortune in Spanish) is the oldest winery in New Mexico and is nestled quietly in off-the-beaten-path Dixon. You'll taste a flight of wine here (6 wines). Then we head to Black Mesa Winery in the Rio Grande Canyon which is surrounded by petroglyphs and has several on their property, where they grow and process the grapes. The last stop is Vivac Winery where you will receive your 3rd flight of award winning wines.
About your Local Taos Winery Guide
“I was raised in Taos and I raised my two sons here. I have a passion for skiing and work part-time in the winter sharing my passion by teaching guests how to ski or improve their skiing. I've been all over this beautiful state I call home and love sharing my town with people that have come to explore this funky place. I've taken winery tours in Napa and I've tasted my fair share of New Mexico wines. I know the wineries in our area well and the people that work them. Join me as I introduce you to the folks I know and the wines of our area on this private wine tasting excursion through Northern New Mexico.”
