The Ultimate Duo


A Guide To Pairing Wine & Cheese




Science tells us that pairing foods and beverages that taste similar to one another improves the experience and that the similarities compliment one another, but the opposite can also be true! The fat in cheese and the acidity in wine compliment each other because of that very fact- they are opposites! The different compounds of cheese and wine creates a balanced and pleasing "mouthfeel," which refers to the way foods feel in the mouth. No wonder cheese and wine pair so perfectly!

Did You Know Red Wine Is Actually Good For Your Health?


Scientific Research Tells Us:


  • Polyphenols, (plant compounds) found in wine, can have a significant effect on the gut microbiome which can in turn reduce cardiovascular disease risk
  • Just 1 glass of red wine can increase healthy bacteria in your digestive system, similar in the way kombucha or yogurt can.
  • The polyphenol content in wine can have a positive effect on your immune system! As good bacteria grows in your gut, your immune health will also strengthen.

A Few Of Our Favorite Immune Boosting & Heart Healthy Red Wines:

2018 Petite Sirah


Bold explosive blueberries and subtle pepper notes open to a juicy, jammy middle and vanilla finish, thanks to 15 plus months in French Oak barrels.

2018 Dolcetto


Aromas of soft toasted chocolate on the nose, followed by figs, prunes, and berries in the middle, finishing smoky and smooth.


For those not quite ready for the dry reds, you can still get the benefit from this tannic sweet red!

2019 Deviance


Sweet strawberries and cherries with nuances of vanilla, tobacco, and smoke. Complexly sweet, with a perfectly balanced finish

Wine Of The Week - 2019 Nuevo Nouveau


As was typical of 2020, the days ran together with the result that I totally missed a very important wine holiday that occurs about the third week of November: Beaujolais Nouveau Day.

Wait, what does all of that have to do with Noisy Water’s Nuevo Nouveau? Well, Nuevo Nouveau IS Noisy Water’s proprietary Beaujolais Nouveau, which is typically the first wine of the harvest, meant to be drunk immediately after production. This is because, back in the old days of wine making, by the time harvest season rolled around, the wine from the year before had already run out… and folks like to have wine! So around the middle of November, after the first fruits of the harvest had been crushed and fermented, the red wine made from Gamay grapes in the Beaujolais region of France were ready to grace the tables and keep people happy until the other wines had time to age and be ready for drinking.

2019 Nuevo Nouveau

Commonly known as Beaujolais Nouveau, we have put our New Mexican spin on this fun Proprieter Grown wine.


Noisy Water’s 2019 Nuevo Nouveau has special meaning for our winemaker: after taking on a neglected vineyard in what appeared to be an inhospitable region of New Mexico and breathing new life into dying vines, the first fruits of what came to be known as the Forbidden Desert vineyard became our first proprietary wine. Instead of Gamay, Pinot Noir grapes were used to create what we affectionately referred to as our “Thanksgiving wine”—released in time to celebrate Thanksgiving and Beaujolais Nouveau day, with a bright burst of ripe berries on the palate, medium bodied and low on tannins but with a spark of acidity reminiscent of cranberries.


Though it’s been a few months since our “new” wine was released, it has mellowed a bit but still calls to mind ripe fruit on a sunny day and can make any meal a reason to give thanks!


“For everyday, we like Beaujolais, Grenache or Syrah, and we like a lot of it! It's a family tradition: We would never consider having a meal without wine”
— Jacques Pepin, French chef

Wine Of The Week - Sweet Temptation


Wine Of The Week - Sweet Temptation by Amy Bennett


Of all temptations, what could be more compelling than to skip dinner and go straight to dessert?


Sweet Temptation is Noisy Water Winery’s classic port-style wine. Created from a blend of Barbera and Dolcetto grapes with an infusion of brandy, this dark, rich dessert wine boasts of a fruitiness reminiscent of cherries and raisins on the nose and ends with a decadent vanilla finish and a hint of chocolate. 

Port-style wines are typically served with desserts because of their sweetness and higher alcohol content. However, Sweet Temptation makes an excellent wine to serve with a cheese course or appetizer as well; it's full-bodied, but not overpowering sweetness, makes it an excellent pairing for a Brie and walnut tart or a variety of rich, pungent cheeses and smoked, salted nuts. It also makes a wonderful “stand-alone” dessert course, with only fresh strawberries or raspberries and some dark chocolate, to finish up a sumptuous meal.

Sweet Temptation

This "Port-Like" fortified wine is going to tempt you to leave with cases!


Sweet Temptation won a Double Gold medal at Fingerlakes International Wine Competition! So in this case, be led to temptation… it’s well worth the trip!


“I can resist everything except temptation”

Wine Of The Week - 2018 Montepulciano


Wine Of The Week - 2018 Montepulciano by Amy Bennett


Montepulciano… few grape varietals evoke the romance of Italian wines, or inspire one to create a rich, poetic meal to share with friends and family. Well, feel free to tap your inner chef, we’ve got you covered on the wine!


Grown in southern New Mexico, Montepulciano is a harmonious balance of modern winemaking techniques with an overarching Old World theme. While many associate the name “Montepulciano” with a certain region in Italy and the wines that are produced there, Noisy Water has taken the namesake varietal and created a wine with a medium body (so as not to overwhelm the food with which it is served) and an explosive bouquet of sweet cherries, tobacco, and rich plum. Soft tannins and complex acidic notes make this wine as easy to drink on its own as with a meal.

2018 Montepulciano

With a deceptively light hue, this Montepulciano is sure to surprise you!


Pair it with an Italian seafood dinner swimming in a rich tomato sauce or serve it with a lighter, grilled meal in the warmer months. It’s an excellent dry red for warmer weather as well as cool evenings, not to heavy on tannins and with a bright, almost cranberry finish. Whenever you decide to open a bottle of Noisy Water’s 2018 Montepulciano, I guarantee it will make the moment memorable!

Wine Of The Week - 2019 Double Barrel Reserve Chardonnay


Two years ago, Noisy Water Winery ventured into new territory… after nearly ten years of creating wines from grapes from other vineyards and growers, our winemaker acquired one of the largest vineyards in the state and started growing his own fruit. Despite the fact it was sadly neglected and in need of a lot of TLC, he took it, named it “Forbidden Desert Vineyard”, put it under the care of a master grower, and coaxed a harvest from 30-year-old vines. 

2019 Double Barrel Reserve Chardonnay, the fruit of that first harvest, was fermented in oak and aged in French oak barrels, giving it a definite oak profile that is characteristic of Chardonnays. A hint of fruit on the nose leads into a balanced, buttery finish of vanilla that calls to mind rich, baked Golden Delicious apples.

Fruit from 30 year old vines fermented in oak, then aged in oak to exhibit the beauty of the fruit, and its ability to become one with the oak.


Chardonnays are commonly thought of being the quintessential Thanksgiving Day wine, but our  Double Barrel Reserve Chardonnay will not be confined to a particular season or holiday. The buttery finish matches that of rich seafood dishes like crab, halibut, and linguine with clams or a decadent pork tenderloin with apples. Raise a glass and see the light shine through its clear, golden depths and bask in the glow of a truly fabulous wine!


“…a big voluptuous chardonnay is like Marilyn Monroe -round, bosomy - you can remember that chardonnay…”
— Karen MacNeil, author of “The Wine Bible”

Team Favorites


Featuring Tanis and her favorite wine

Today we are shining the spotlight on Tanis, a face you'll see regularly at the Noisy Water Winery tasting room in Ruidoso, NM and at Enchated Vine in Alto! 2016 Curtain Call is her favorite because this blend consists of all her favorite varietals (30% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, and 10% Petit Verdot).


Now that's what we call a show stopper!


Tanis loves to pair the 2016 Curtain Call with asiago cheese or a nice steak since it has similar and complimenting flavor profiles to red meats and nutty cheeses! Tanis enjoys the vanilla and blackberry notes of this dry red as well as the smooth and unique finish. She and her friends love sit back and hang out while they share a bottle.




Making an international award-winning, show-closing blend where each varietal takes a bow: 30% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, and 10% Petit Verdot. 



Vanilla and black cherry on the nose, working into hints of pitted fruit and blackberries. Finishes bone dry and silky-smooth. A full bodied Bordeaux-style red blend using the finest grapes in the state; a must-try for all wine connoisseurs. 




Pair this with performing arts, or any reason for a Curtain Call.
