New Mexico Wineries & VineyardsNew Mexico wine tradition goes back more than a century. In fact, the 1880 census indicated that New Mexicans already had 3,150 acres of grape vines, almost double the figures shown in that year for New York State.

By 1884, New Mexico was fifth in the nation in wine production. Fate took a hand when weather conditions and constant flooding of the Rio Grande River, followed by Prohibition in 1920, stopped the industry cold. Its long-awaited rebirth only took place in the late 1970's.

Today, New Mexico has over 20 operating wineries, producing almost 350,000 gallons of wine a year. (Above, the Black Mesa Winery in Velarde, NM.)
