roasted green chile ∙ orchard fruit ∙ crisp acidity

In New Mexico we pair green chile with everything—including this best selling wine! To make this wine we infuse Hatch, NM green chile into an off-dry white wine base. The aroma is bold with the essence of roasted green chile, which fills the New Mexico air every fall! At first sip the palate is met with a fresh orchard-fruit flavor reminiscent of a road-side fruit stand, and leads you to a smokey, yet refreshing finish with just a subtle green chile kick.

Just the right crispness ending in a little bite! This wine has never disappointed my friends and guests. Great summer libation!

This wine was a huge hit with my guests, two of which are born and raised in Albuquerque NM and cherish their chiles. You can smell the green chile right away when you raise your glass. The chile flavor is distinctly present, with a gentle bite, offset by a light and refreshing sweetness. A perfect wine for summer gatherings; I will definitely need to keep this one stocked!

I do not drink alcohol but maybe once or twice in a blue moon simply because of the taste! This is one of two wines that I found accidentally on a trip that I can drink and enjoy. This is more than a 5 star wine!

If you always resort to Sangria with Mexican food, then pivot to a bottle of this. It is the perfect accompaniment. You'll wonder why you ever drank anything else.

This is the best Hatch chili wine ever. This was the last wine we tried on our tour of the winery. At first taste, it was mildly sweet and then the mild burn. A sweet heat...wonderful.

This wine is AMAZING! You can taste the green Chile in the back of your throat with the first sniff! I grew up outside of Santa Fe and that first sniff sent me back there. The flavor is light & crisp with that wonderful fresh roasted Chile taste with just the right amount of heat. I wish it was available in Oregon. Love this!

The wine description above spells it out perfectly. I tipped my glass up for that first sip. First came that green chili smell, then the crisp slightly sweet taste, then the perfect amount of smokey heat made me want and other sip. Then another and another. If you aren’t a sweet wine drinker - don’t let the fact that this has a light sweet crisp taste prevent you from trying it. It’s the perfect combination. I bought several bottles for my friends who I knew would love it as much as I do. Then I decided to keep them all myself. I’m Placing another order - they may get one of those……Maybe. :) Best wine I’ve ever had.

I am addicted to this wine! I did a tasting on a visit to Albuquerque, bought a few bottles, and have since ordered 4 cases for delivery to NC. I am a dry wine drinker, but this wine is crisp and the chili bite at the end is wonderful. It is the perfect wine for these hot summer days.
