The Las Cruces Wine Trail features 10 local wineries and wine-tasting venues. Unbeknownst to many, this is actually the oldest wine-producing region in North America with fertile soil and great growing conditions. Wine lovers can sample American as well as European wines at St. Clair Winery & Bistro or visit the oldest “modern” winery, La Viña, which was established in 1977. Sunday afternoons on the patio at Rio Grande Vineyard and Winery are particularly alluring with live music, house made sangrias and views of the nearby mountains.
