“Excellent Wine!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

I saw a Trip Advisor sticker on the door and I knew that this was going to be a good place.
We came with some friends to enjoy a wine tasting Groupon. I really enjoy Casa Abril wines. They are not cheap but they are well worth the price. We had chocolate-covered raisins and almonds to go with our tasting. The Groupon was 25 dollars for a two person tasting with a bottle of Estate Tempranillo. We tasted several styles of the wines and two vintages. This is a wonderful way to experience a winery. Our host Raymond Vigil, was charming and knowledgeable. His daughter is the vintner and she does a great job.
It was a great way to spend an afternoon. We love the tempranillo style as well as the Tuscan style Sangiovese and the malbec, and all of this wine. It was great fun at a beautiful venue. We will be back.
If you are looking for something uniquely New Mexican, I would highly recommend checking out this establishment

“Excellent winery”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Casa abril is a fantastic little winery near the Albuquerque area. Owner Raymond makes everyone feel like family and their wines are fantastic. Enjoyed just about all their reds and most whites.

“Wine Tasting at Casa Abril”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

A group of 17 women visited Casa Abril in Budaghers, NM, for a wine tasting as part of a tour of New Mexico wineries for a friend's birthday. This is a small boutique winery totally off the beaten path. The wines were excellent, especially their Malbec. It was easy to discover that the family that owns it puts a lot of time and attention into the quality of their wines. The owner spent a lot of time telling us about the history of the winery and their various wines. It was a totally enjoyable visit. Unfortunately, you have to make a trip to the winery to buy their wines as they are not distributed to retail stores.

“A very nice tasting venue”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

We went there for a wine tasting today. They are up I-25 north of Albuquerque at the Budaghers exit 257. For $8 tasting fee you get 5 samples-we had a Muscat Canelli, Sol de Abril 2009 Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Savignon Blanc, Tempranillo 2011. Also almonds and chocolates. They also have a Tempranillo 2010 Reserve for sale. Raymond Vigil was a great host, told us some great family history. Showed us his wine making facilities. They made about 500 cases last year, hope to do 1000 cases this year. We came back with 3 bottles of vino.
