If you like a good glass of champagne, you will love the Gruet Winery. The vineyard is located in Albuquerque, but there is an incredible tasting room in Santa Fe! Located just a 5-minute drive or 10-minute walk from Four Kachinas, the intimate tasting room has options for both Sparkling Wines Tastings and Still Wines Tastings. Each wine is made with expert care by the prestigious Gruet family, so you are sure to enjoy whichever blend you choose.

Vivac Winery

You will love visiting the Vivac Winery! The tasting room right outside of Santa Fe is small yet magical. The overgrown gardens outside make your entire tasting experience enchanting.
