Any trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico should include a visit to the Estrellas del Norte Vineyard. It is a local operation that produces fantastic wines. The vineyard is small enough that the staff can really be attentive and engaging. We explored the grounds which were filled with sculptures and features that ranged from Zen-inspired to fairyland whimsy. A visit to the wine tasting room is the perfect way to end the day. The ladies who served us were very informed and answered all of our questions while at the same time being so genuinely funny I could have sat an drank wine all night with them. Instead, we purchased a few bottles to take home and the romantic day turned into an even more romantic evening for the gringa and her caveman. Sweet!
