    What to Expect
    This is a private tour that can accommodate you and a loved one, or you and your friends/family/bachelorette party/etc. With convenient pickup at your accommodation, or, if you're visiting Taos for the day, at a place of your choice, your four hour winery tour begins at 1pm.

    A scenic drive to the first winery in the artist colony of Dixon, La Chiripada is a family run winery in the Embudo Valley. Started by two brothers in the 1970's, it's now operated by their son/nephew. After tasting up to 6 wines of your choice, you'll venture to Black Mesa Winery in Rinconada, another scenic small town in the stunning Rio Grande canyon and full of Petrogylphs. With 6 more wine tastings, be sure to ask for a sample of their famous and delicious chocolate wine! You'll receive a souvenir wine glass, if you choose to take with you. The final stop is at Vivac winery located in the canyon on the road back to Taos. The tour will finish around 4:30PM dropping you back off at your accommodation in Taos, New Mexico. 

    All wine tastings and server tips are included, as well as transportation and riveting information on the Spanish and Native American history of the area. Not included are snacks or guide gratuity (while not required, gratuities of 15-20% of tour cost is welcomed). Keep in mind that you are consuming alcohol at elevation, which may increase the effects of alcohol. Drink plenty of water and eat lunch before you join the tour.

    The guide Todd was great = super friendly and VERY knowledgeable about the area. He knows the history of not only the vineries that we visited but the area as well.

    We ended up being the only ones on the tour, but Turquoise Tours didn’t cancel. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the wineries, and also the history of wine making in the area. It was a fun, and fascinating afternoon.
