"Almost four hundred years ago the first wine grapes were planted in New Mexico soil at the San Antonio De Padua Mission located just south of Socorro, New Mexico. Today there are approximately 1,200 acres of grapes planted in New Mexico and 38 wineries and tasting rooms located within the state. New Mexico produced wines hold national and international awards."
