Afternoon At The Local Winery



The most beautiful winery in New Mexico is right in my own neighborhood. I always feel like I'm in France or Italy when I visit even though it's constructed in a southern Spain/North African Moorish style. It's a nice place to hang out for an afternoon with out of town visitors. Especially with the mild afternoons we've been having.

 


A little wine and cheese and good conversation in a gorgeous setting--what else do you need?



The beautiful grounds and facility are also used for weddings and photography. You may want a peek of more at another event at the winery that I posted on last summer at this link. 

 


I can't think of a nicer way to spend a Sunday afternoon with friends.


 


The owners residence is at the back of the property behind the wine tasting rooms. I don't have a hard time picturing myself living here!




Love the old world accessories sitting about the place.

 



A few Moorish arches.





The sound of a trickling fountain on the pond . . . .


 


It all makes me feel like I'm the one on a European vacation.




 


I hope you're enjoying the sights!
Have a great week ahead whatever you're up to. . . .
So nice that you stopped by!

Thanks for a tour of the grounds at the winery. It looks beautiful there.
You're right...it looks European for sure...and doesn't look like the architecture we're used to seeing here in the USA.

Sounds like you had a lovely time.

How beautiful. We have a winery about five minutes from us. Not as pretty as yours.
