Grapes, Nuts, & Wine

New Mexico has a long history of wine production, starting with the mission grape brought here by the Spanish Colonists. The fertile soil, high altitude and dry moderate weather make the Tularosa basin a perfect place to grow not only grapes but pistachios and pecans as well. You can explore numerous vineyards and nut farms, minutes from Alamogordo. Many locations have beautiful gift shops, gorgeous views, wine and nut tastings and tours daily. Visit these amazing locations to learn more about the rich history of farming in New Mexico, and don’t forget to pick up a bottle of wine and a burlap bag of your own nuts to take home.
