3 of the Best Wineries in Santa Fe

1. Vivac Winery

Vivac Winery is located on a gorgeous expanse of land in Dixon, NM, but they have a tasting room in Santa Fe just 5 minutes away from El Farolito! You can either take the easy drive to the vineyard or opt for convenience by staying in the city. Either way, you’ll get to indulge in tastings from the entire list of wines that they offer. The servers are always willing to answer any questions you may have about the flavors or wine-making process! Choose from delicious whites and reds from this traditional Santa Fe winery.

2. Don Quixote Distillery & Winery

This Santa Fe winery offers both wines and spirits, so there’s something for everyone! The Don Quixote Distillery & Winery is right off the highway about 20 minutes away from El Farolito. Make your way to the cozy tasting room with Southwestern-inspired decor. Here, you can try multiple types of alcohol, which is not typical for a winery. Test out gins, vodka, and delicious wines! You are sure to find something you’ll want to take a bottle or two home of.

3. Gruet Winery Santa Fe Tasting Room

While the Gruet Winery Santa Fe tasting room technically isn’t a Santa Fe winery, we know you’ll love this glamorous wine bar. A 3-minute drive or 10-minute walk from El Farolito, this luxurious wine tasting spot is an amazing spot to grab a drink. You can choose to have wines by the glass or purchase a flight to try multiple. Gruet is the largest winery in New Mexico, so it’s a treat to have a tasting room in Santa Fe!
