Foodies and oenophiles rejoice, it’s time again for the Santa Fe Wine and Chile Festival, September 23-25. This celebration of all things hot and leggy includes wine seminars, cooking demos, guest chef tours, tastings and even a golf competition. New Mexico is the oldest wine growing region in the United States (those Spanish Friars had to have their sacramental wine in the 1500s), and vineyards cover New Mexico border to border, producing a varied and exciting caliber of grape, given our diverse topography and altitudes. With New Mexico wines bringing home medals from around the world, Santa Fe certainly has something to share and celebrate this season. Events are at venues, restaurants and kitchens across Santa Fe. Log on to for complete details, tickets and schedules.
