If you are in Albuquerque or on route to Santa Fe the Gruet winery is an easy access point to stop by and try New Mexico sparking and still wines. The Gruet family history begins in France and evolves to New Mexico. Which for centuries has had wine grapes planted as sacramental wines. The Gruet Family found that Pinot Noir and Chardonnay did not just grow but grow well south of Albuquerque near Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. I have seen Gruet wines being poured at restaurants across the US attest to the affordability and quality their wines provide. The tasting room can be quiet and I wonder given their wine’s popularity why they aren’t busier. I have met Nathalie Gruet and she is welcoming, un-assuming and quiet nice. A great entre to discover New Mexico wines.
