Here’s a quick trivia question for you: Where is the oldest winemaking region in North America? Although Northern California, the Hudson Valley of New York and the Coahuila state of Mexico are common guesses, the correct answer is actually New Mexico.

Sunshine bounces off the blooming yellow roses and hand-painted tiles adorning the tasting room, just one of the stunning Spanish-style buildings on the property.
