What is not included:
Tasting Fees ARE NOT included.
This is to SAVE you $$$$
Some guest like to share their tastings or even skip a winery.
You are not required to taste at the wineries or buy wine.
The wineries are in business for a reason & that is to sell wine.
Nearly all wineries charge these fees.
Most will waive your fee if you are purchasing a certain amount of bottles or a bottle of wine.
Ask your server.
If we pay for your tasting fees, wineries will not waive the fee, so you pay the fee whether you purchase wine or not, plus the wineries are not part of our business, they are our partners in wine :)
The tasting fee's are currently a whole whopping $25.78 for ALL THREE WINERIES per guest,
NOT per winery! ($4, $10 & $10)
At each of the 3 wineries you will be tasting from 6 to 8 different wines, equivalent
to more than a glass of wine.
Every winery has their own special discounts they offer NM Wine Tour guests.
Do I tip the winery host?
It would be much appreciated if you tip your servers please.
Your servers do not make a commission or does NM Wine Tours on any wine purchased.
Time spent at each winery?
Average time is about an hour at each winery.
Plenty of time after your tastings to enjoy a glass of wine with your snacks.
Or walk the grounds enjoying the scenery.
Door to door service transportation
Our fresh delicious picnic lunch & snacks.
We put a lot of expense into your lunch & snacks!
Our lunch is not a bag of chips or a day old Deli sandwich!
Plenty of bottled water
Suggested min. 15% Guide gratuity
What kind of vehicle will I be in:
Comfortable, forward facing stand up 14 passenger mini coach bus or our Transit XLT with plenty of room for your items.

Travel Guide & Concierge to the Authentic Santa Fe
We are open and available to book tours and answer any questions you might have.
The health of our guests, staff and community is the utmost importance here at New Mexico Wine Tours.
Due to the pandemic there are very few travelers at this time visiting Santa Fe.
In order for us to afford one of our wonderful Join-In tours we need at least 4 guests to break even.
At this time NM Wine tours will only be conducting custom private scenic tours until the wineries open up for tastings.
The wineries are open for curbside service only at this time where you can purchase bottles of wine,
hard ciders and growers of beer.
Our awesome picnic lunch can be served at a designated picnic area along the Rio Grande in which you can enjoy the bottle of wine you purchased if so desired on your custom tour.
There are many sights to see and enjoy with out actually going into a brick and mortar.
We will keep everyone updated on any changes.
I might add, this is the perfect time to visit Santa Fe, be prepared to wear a mask!
The reason COVID-19 has a low count in our state is due to all the intelligent folks that care and are wearing masks & social distancing.
We ask that you do the same when visiting.
New Mexico is the oldest wine producing state in the US
400+ years of history
New Mexico takes DRINKING & DRIVING very seriously
Please be one of the smart ones and Do Not Drink & Drive!
The small amount we charge, that includes your lunch and everything else we offer is well worth it!
Let us guide & do the driving!
