Casa Rondeña Winery is a one-of-a-kind wedding and event venue located in Albuquerque’s North Valley. The spiritual and calm feeling, the manicured lawns, and the romanticism of a fully-operational winery will make your wedding one to be remembered for many years.
Casa Rondeña Winery offers three event spaces in a unique setting surrounded by cottonwoods, our lush vineyards, a beautiful pond and flowing fountains. We invite you to experience the charm and serenity of the oldest wine-producing region in America. A picturesque environment, classic architecture, fine hand-crafted wines, attention to detail and commitment to service are just part of what we offer at Casa Rondeña Winery. We invite you to share the experience.
At Casa Rondeña our specialty is creating customized wedding packages for each of our clients. The experience starts with a visit and tour of our property, a no-obligation consultation to find out exactly what your vision is, followed by our suggestions for time, structure and price. We want to make sure that we provide you with the highest level of customer service and the clearest information.
Casa Rondeña has three event spaces: the Great Hall, the Rotunda, and the 1629 Club. As a working winery the barrels, casks and winemaking equipment add to the charm of hosting your special event at Casa Rondeña. All three areas are suited for ceremonies and receptions, and include indoor and outdoor space.
The Great Hall
The Great Hall is the original Casa Rondeña Winery fermenting room. Modeled after a Moroccan souk with a gorgeous vaulted ceiling, it is our largest indoor space on the property. To the east of the Great Hall is the Great Hall Garden. This picturesque outdoor space includes a lawn and patio area nestled between our grape vines and pond.
This octagonal room hosts a stunning domed ceiling and ornate tile work reminiscent of architecture Mr. Calvin has experienced overseas. Connected to the Rotunda is the Barrel Room. This unique space is where our award-winning wines age in large oak barrels. The aroma of wine and oak fills the room and gives your guests an authentic Casa Rondeña experience. Just outside the Rotunda and Barrel Room lies the Founder’s Garden, a quaint outdoor space accented with Middle Eastern style archways and a fountain centerpiece.
The 1629 Club
Located at the back of the property, The 1629 Club originated as the founder’s private residence. This beautiful home has now been transformed into our member’s club. The first floor hosts ample lounge seating as well as a dining room surrounded by striking views of the winery. The meticulous details created in the architecture of the building make for a warm and inviting space for your guests to socialize. Situated to the west of the club is the 1629 Lawn where you can host your ceremony and reception in the comfort of Mr. Calvin’s old backyard. Your friends and family will relax and enjoy the celebration in our large covered patio overlooking our pond.
Spend an unforgettable evening with your closest friends and family in the most beautiful venue in Albuquerque. Set up a family style table through the Barrel Room, or serve heavy hors d’oeuvres and lounge in the 1629 Club.
