Tastes of the Season in Albuquerque

October 30th, 2013 by Emily

Tastes of the SeasonNew Mexican cuisine is comparable to no other.  Both Albuquerque and Santa Fe offer an exceptionally diverse array of culinary experiences that should be on the top of any foodie’s list of travel destinations.  While the food here is surely worth the visit alone, Albuquerque is also home to a variety of wineries and microbreweries.  Wine has been produced in this region dating back to the Spanish missionaries, who planted grapes in the lush Rio Grande Valley to establish the first of the vineyards.  Our award-winning wines flourish in 310 days of sun each year, enjoying the perfect balance of warm, sunny days and cool, crisp nights.  There are few better ways to share such a rich culinary history than in the several fun beer, wine, and food festivals of Albuquerque. One such festival, the Tastes of the Season, is coming up in Albuquerque in mid-November, and is sure to please food lovers from around the globe.  It doesn’t matter if you come here for a quick weekend foodie adventure, or if you want to relax on an extended New Mexican adventure; we have it all.  Stay at Hacienda Vargas, a quiet old-world retreat filled with New Mexican charm that is far enough away from the bustling city, yet still close enough to easily enjoy gastronomical delights awaiting you in Albuquerque’s Tastes of the Season.
