We are all Travelers. We seek what is true and we push past what we know to be false. The question is: where do we go? What place is true and good and real?

Our venturesome travelers, beaming with adventurous spirits and a thirst for authenticity, chronicle their explorations and ideas, trekking to what is true and discovering the unexpected.

In 1598, Don Juan de Oñate led Spanish settlers to the Rio Grande’s upper valleys. With colonists came Franciscan monks and with the monks came the need for sacramental wine. Brushing off Spanish laws that forbade exporting grapevines, Franciscan monks smuggled vines to New Mexico in 1629 and planted them just south of the modern-day town of Socorro.

All across New Mexico, winemakers and wine experts regularly get together to celebrate new vintages and toast older favorites at wine festivals. These convivial gatherings bring together wine-lovers to sample the newest releases and purchase special-edition wines, but they are also great opportunities to meet winemakers in person.

From high-flying hot air balloons and scenic hikes to unique restaurants and charming small towns, New Mexico is filled with opportunities for adventure. Our beautiful scenery and rich cultural heritage is part of what makes us such an incredible destination for family travel, and if you’re looking for a fun activity to entertain kids and adults alike, New Mexico’s Wildlife West Nature Park is the ideal choice.
