With New Mexico being the first wine producing state, trying the local wines and beers is a must. Here are a few places to go:

One of our great local wines can be found at the Milagro Winery in Corrales, NM.

After Milagro, you must try the Corrales Winery. Their name is pretty plane but their wines are anything but. Call me and I'll meet you there.

St Clair Winery is another beautiful place to stop during you visit.

For one place to go to try several wines and beers, check out Albuquerque Corks and Brews. After the dawn patrol and the morning glow, get a ticket and stop by before the Twilight Twinkle Glow™ and fireworks. It's a nice way to break up the day.

For other fun things to do while you're here, call David Wedding at 505-331-9760.
