I love New Mexico wines. And the New Mexico Wine Growers Association puts together a great weekend of wine tasting, testing and buying every Memorial Day at Balloon Fiesta Park in Albuquerque. And this year, my best pal Sabrina and I will be there, not just as tasters and testers and buyers (although we plan to get in on THAT action). We’re going to be selling jewelry and t-shirts and great gifts, from Pick Up Sticks Jewelry Company and from one of our favorite companies, Virgins, Saints & Sinners. All good stuff. You’re going to want some. . .
Want the details so you can join us? Go to www.abqwinefestival.com for the music lineup, which promises to be great. The event is May 29 – 31, 2010, beginning at noon daily and continuing until 6:00 p.m. Admission is $15, which includes a souvenir glass for tasting all the best New Mexico wines. You can find more information about New Mexico wines in general at www.nmwine.com.
My sources say the weather should be perfect – there’s nothing like Albuquerque in May. Bring a hat, sunscreen, your photo id (their instructions, not mine) and plan on having a great time. I do!
