Visited Amaro during a trip to Las Cruces and found it to be okay. They have Salsa dance classes on Saturday's and found the place to be very small for this purpose. Otherwise, the wine and atmosphere was great!

If you have a wine palate, you would do well to by-pass this one. This was our third winery this day so perhaps we were spoiled by the first two. Wine was so-so, nothing I would serve to my guests.

Great wine and comfortable atmosphere. I like the family feel to this winery. The music on Fridays is always a great show!

Amaro has some very tasty wines that are reasonably priced. They have a good sized patio and small, but lively interior with live music on Friday nights. The wine tastings, however, are very disappointing. They were out of several of the wines, and did not...More

Amaro is fun, if it is a Friday night. On Fridays, they have live music on the patio, or inside if the weather is harsh. The wines are interesting and good. The wine servers are excellent people and they care about the customers. Saturdays, no...More
