A Chat with Rio Grande Vinyard & Winery
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Winemaker Gordon Steel attended Washington State and UC Davis for viticulture and eonology, and uses his talents and knowledge to create fabulous New Mexico wines.
What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?
We offer an "orange wine" made by using white grapes and treating them as if they were red grapes in the production process. This wine was aged in Hungarian oak for 7 years.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Owner Gordon Steel is retired military, and he spent a great deal of time in Europe exploring and studying the art of European wine. This inspired him to grow those varietals here with a New Mexico flair.
What do you love most about your job?
Interacting with people who are enthusiastic about learning more about wine and the art of wine tasting.
