Welcome to our blog, where we share news and updates about our vineyard and tasting room, share delicious recipes and food pairings, and stories of winemaking and travel.
It saddens us to inform you that we've been monitoring the Coronavirus situation very closely in New Mexico as it pertains to bars and restaurants, and we have decided to close until things in our state and country have settled. We're not looking at the glass being half-empty (or all the way empty for that matter), but ready to be filled again when the time is right, and when our communities are safe.

We never in a million years thought we would be impacted so closely by something like this, but we still believe there are ways to come together and become an even stronger community on the other side of these recent and challenging events. We're working with our employees to ensure their needs are met at this time, and we are thankful for the resources made available for small businesses that make up such a considerable percentage of our local economy.
In the meantime, we are actively thinking about ways to stay in touch with you all on social media. We're planning some creative online meetups for local wine enthusiasts to get together and raise a glass with one another. We strongly feel that sharing wine with one another makes the human experience deeper and life more fulfilling.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding as we all navigate these uncharted waters. Finally, we would like to raise a glass to everyone in the healthcare industry and first responders, and anyone else in public health working to keep people and families safe. We hope to raise a glass with you all soon.

This March, we're mad for Moscato. This sweet wine lends itself so well to creating all kinds of custom concoctions, and with warmer weather on the horizon, don't be surprised if we have some sunny days that call for something truly refreshing!
Our first recipe this month is for a delightfully refreshing Moscato Spritzer. Feel free to modify these to your unique tastes, and be sure to share the results with us on social media. Tag your creations with #LiveEnchanted, and we'll share the best ones on our feed!
Mix the Moscato and club soda to get that nice bubbly texture, then add your favorite fresh (or frozen) fruit. You can chill your pitcher and allow the fruit's flavors to be extracted more before serving over ice. Top off the presentation with some fresh mint or more fruit.
Cheers to the springtime from all of us at Enchantment Vineyards in Portales, New Mexico!
Our 2017 Enchanted Moscato is our featured wine for March 2020. Save 20% off all month long on online orders or inside our tasting room!
