Q: What has changed because of COVID-19?

A: We are currently open for our normal hours of 12pm-7pm every day. Due to COVID restrictions, we are unable to offer our normal “tastings” or sampling at the bar at this time. However, we do have a wine flight ($12) that includes 4 pre-selected wines available to take outside to taste, and additional samples of remaining wines if desired. You may also purchase by the glass or by the bottle to enjoy on our patio. We do have both indoor and outdoor seating available on a first come, first served basis.

We also require our guests to wear masks whenever not seated. In compliance with our NM Safe Certification, we also ask that all guests sign in for contact tracing. We are taking all the measures we can to remain a safe and healthy place to visit during this time.
