About our winery:

We are located in northern NM at 5800' elevation. On site we raise Montepulciano, Pinot Grigio, Syrah, and Albarino.
All wines are made and bottled on-site using only NM grapes. It's our goal to make outstanding wines and have fun do it.

Three things to love about us:

We love cats.
We make more than 30 different wines.
We put as much time, care, and love in our sweet wines as we do our dry wines.

What makes us unique:

At Black Mesa Winery we are proud to use only New Mexico grown grapes for our wines. We work with the greatest diversity of grape sources of any winery in the state. Some of our proprietary growers' vineyards only produce a few bins of fruit per year. Our partnerships are with more than a dozen vineyards statewide, from the most Northerly commercial vineyard in Abiquiu, New Mexico, to the "boot heel" outside El Paso in Las Cruces.

Our awards:

2016 Finger Lakes Wine Competition
Barbera '13: Double Gold
Abiquiu White: Silver
Cabernet Franc '11: Silver
