Coming Up: Albuquerque Wine Festival
Don’t miss New Mexico’s biggest wine festival over Memorial Day weekend in Albuquerque!
Held at Balloon Fiesta Park, the Albuquerque Wine Festival is a three-day event featuring local vineyards, live bands, multiple food trucks, numerous arts and crafts, and so many delicious wine samples! This is a great way to spend time with family, friends, and significant others while you’re in Albuquerque.
Try reds, whites, and sparkling wines from different vineyards, such as Black Smuggler, Rio Suave, Noisy Water, and Enchantment Vineyards, or mix things up with some hard cider! Each vineyard has their own style, strengths, and offerings so you’ll never get bored, and if you find a bottle you particularly enjoy, you can buy it to take home. At the same time, you can pair the wine with delicious food, such as sandwiches or cheese, from the numerous food trucks and restaurant booths set up in the park, giving you a well-rounded idea for pairing. And if you feel the wine start to go to your head, coffee and water will, of course, be available at New Mexico Pinion Coffee.
You’ll definitely want to visit the artisan booths at the Albuquerque Wine Festival, where you can view gorgeous paintings or pick up a hand-painted wine glass, but don’t forget to stop and check out the bands too!
