First a word about New Mexican wine. We have tried a few on previous visits and have been underwhelmed. But the Blachers took us to Casa Rondena Winery and we drank a lovely bottle of Meritage sitting on the winery patio. It was the start of a beautiful evening.
The winery grounds were magical,
the wine was excellent
They had the sound of running water
and the company was great.
We saw the sun setting on the on the Sandia Mountains.
In Santa Fe we drank a bottle of Cabernet from Milagro Vineyards it was also excellent. I think New Mexico Vintners are making progress.
