    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Though a village, this community keeps itself active with many events throughout the year .... many are family oriented and a lot of fun ;)

    They have a pet parade every year - and for a couple of years my whole family, and the cats, participated... they even placed in the ribbon competition :)

    So if you are planning a visit, please take time to check out the website for local, fun, events to you can join in!

This diversion is accomplished through irrigation chanels that we locals call ditches. Some ditches are deep, some run fast - all are potentially lethal to those silly enough to try and swim...

Corrales Off The Beaten Path

  • MarkJochim's Profile Photo

    by MarkJochim Updated Apr 22, 2003

    This is one of New Mexico's newest wineries, having been founded in 2000, and is family owned and operated. Their 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon and Francs won Gold Medals at the 2002 New Mexico State Fair; the 2000 Riesling and 2000 Muscat Canelli won Silver Medals at the same competion. Also, try the Mariachi - a semisweet red wine blended from grapes grown in Corrales and Deming; with a rich, velvety mouth feel, and deep red and black fruit flavors, this wine has Port-like flavors.

    OPEN: Wed-Sun., noon to 5 p.m

    ADDRESS: 6275 Corrales Road, Corrales NM 87048
