About VARA Wines
VARA winery is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the heart of the legendary “Land Of Enchantment”, where Spain first introduced European (vinifera) wine grapes to what is now the USA in 1629. We are within walking distance to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Park, home to one of the most renowned balloon fiestas in the world.
A unique town & country winery, the tasting room offers both indoor and outdoor seating options. Guests can enjoy a glass in the rustic elegance of the tasting room or sit outside and sip wine while taking in the prestigious Sandia Mountains to the east. While at the winery, visitors may indulge in light snacks, shop for gifts and sign up for the VARA wine club. Tours of the winery are available by appointment and the space can also be booked for private events.
