IT'S A WINE TIME IN THE MESILLA VALLEY Since the days of Don Juan de OƱate, wine has had a fruitful existence in the fertile Mesilla Valley. Once considered the "principal industry of the people," winemaking in the valley hit a low-point in the early 1900's. However, there has been a new surge of wine growers, producing solid, good-quailty wine, popping up in Southern New Mexico. Now, with over a dozen wineries in the area, there has never been a better time to visit their incredible atmospheres and taste their delicious samplings. QUICK TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL WINERY VISIT: 1.) Have transportation lined up prior to your outing. 2.) Drink plenty of water. 3.) Grab a bite to eat in between tastings. 4.) Have fun and enjoy your surroundings. 5.) Don't just taste - BUY!
