La Viña Winery

4201 South Highway NM-28
Anthony, NM 88021



We had no way of knowing how choosing Albuquerque NM as our new home in 1989 (over other places in New Mexico, Arizona, Texas and California) would change our lives. My hobbies of cooking and wine appreciation picqued my interest in a job offer as Anderson Valley Vineyard’s Assistant Winemaker. I thought it would be an interesting product to learn to make, not just to drink. On-the-job training, under a wine consultant from California allowed me to take over winemaking six months later when the Head Winemaker took another job in California. Anderson Valley Vineyards was the largest selling winery in New Mexico, at the time, with the grapes coming from Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. Making many varieties and many styles provided a great learning experience.
