French Nights – Les chants de Noël et le temps des Fêtes- Christmas carols and the holidays

Come sing Christmas carols in French, and learn some holiday vocabulary, while eating some of Casa Rondeña’s modern take on a traditional Bûche de Noël (Yule log dessert)! Singing is optional, sit back and listen if you don’t sing 🙂

Please join us at Casa Rondeña Winery from 5:30-7 pm for our winter French Night series!  As always, we’ll enjoy some French study, wine, culture, and songs in French!  We’ll be joined by a guest musician- Malcolm Moore on guitar, or Alicia Ultan on guitar and viola, for some songs led by Maryse.

Please note:  The dates have changed this season, French Night is not always on the first and third Wednesdays, so please double-check!  

~ Open to all levels! ~

Enjoy the beautiful winery and gorgeous grounds, while sipping an award-winning local wine in good company! Well-behaved minors welcome; non-alcoholic beverages available.  

Some people have said that they can’t come because they can’t sing…  Please come enjoy the music; singing is optional, not mandatory!

$25 + tax per person, $20 + tax per person for wine club members

This includes your first glass of wine, and cheese and crackers!

 On the 3rd Wednesday, we also have a special French food item available for purchase.  The Club is now open on Wednesdays for pizza and tapas as well, so if you come for French night, you also get Club access that night even if you’re not a member yet!

Holiday Marketplace

Casa Rondeña will be hosting a Holiday Marketplace on December 15, 2018 from 12-4pm. We will have several local vendors who will be showcasing their hand-made art, crafts and food. Looking for that perfect, unique gift? We will have it!

We will be sampling many of the products we carry in our gift shop, such as chile, honey, coffee, cheese, chocolate, and more!

We will have the Casa Rondeña version of hot mulled wine! The fireplace will be blazing in the Great Hall, music will be playing and good times will be had 🙂

We will be accepting donations for The Heart of Albuquerque during the marketplace. They are a non-profit organization that provides assistance to the homeless in our community. They are in need of canned food, beanies, gloves, socks, blankets, hand & foot warmers, hygiene products and money. Everything helps!
