Taste delicious wines and cider from New Mexico

Black Mesa is one of the few northern New Mexico wineries, and 100% of their wines are made from New Mexico grapes. They are renowned for making single-varietal wines and cider with homegrown apples. With close proximity to the Rio Grande, the Velarde Valley has been farmed for over 1000 years from native tribes to the Spanish settlers. Black Mesa pieces together several centuries of history with symbols of the past through ancient Petroglyphs.

Over 75,000 Petroglyphs have been found in this valley with over 50 here on the property available for viewing via private tours

Black Mesa winery follows a high-quality principle

There is a high level of quality in their production throughout the vineyards which continues to the winemaking in the cellar. Six grape varieties are grown at their winery, and others are sourced from the best harvested vineyards in northern New Mexico. Black Mesa grows Montepulciano, Pinot Grigio, Albarino, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Syrah to make their high-quality red, white, rose, sparkling, and dessert wines. The winery produces 40 to 60 cases of each wine.

Do not miss to book a great tasting at site

The best grapes are handpicked and brought to the winery. They are hand sorted and then put in the crusher. White grapes ferment with low oxygen so that the wines are crisp. Red grapes ferment in bins that allow experimentation with multiple yeasts and different management strategies. The technique used to make their red wines is rare as they “hand punch” the grapes to get the natural flavour and colour from the berries. Black Mesa makes over 30 wines, you can visit the winery for a tasting as well as to purchase wines.
