Welcome to Where Vivir means to live and to celebrate!A visit to Casa Abril Vineyards & Winery Tasting Room represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Algodones day trip planning site to plot your vacation.
Within the natural folds of the New Mexico desert, under blue
skies, a doorway from long ago opens to a new oasis born
from a wine lovers’ passion. The lush and vibrant vineyards
of Casa Abril create a new chapter in the 400 year old Vigil/Romero legacy, bringing into focus the spirit of Raymond
Vigil and his family. Combining the music of laughter, the
closeness of family and the desire to produce a successful
product, Casa Abril Vineyards and Winery isn’t just another
glass of fragrant, well-rounded wine; it is a Spanish Family experience. Casa Abril Vineyards and Winery began in
2001 under the care and direction of Raymond and Sheila
Vigil. Providing pure New Mexico wine made with Spanish
and Argentinean grapes of Vinifera Tempranillo and Malbec
varieties, we create special niche wines. Coming from the
Spanish families of Vigil and Romero who date back to the
colonial times of Spain, we are committed to the tradition
of our Spanish legacy with our dedication to the vineyards
at Casa Abril. Producing American Tempranillo and Malbec
wines energized by our caring hands, imbued from root to
peppery finish by the devotion and joy of our Spanish heritage; Casa Abril Vineyards and Winery brings to your table
something at-once old as the Conquistadors, and new as our
freshly bottled Rosé.
The vision of Casa Abril Vineyards and Winery was
brought to fruition in May of 2001 when the first hundred Tempranillo grapes were hand planted by our family and friends.
Every year, we have continued to plant more and more acres
of grapes. The gallons of wine that have flowed since have
competed and won in the New Mexico State Wine Competition, earning us medals of bronze and silver.
With our Tempranillo, Malbec, Zinfandel, and Tempranillo Rosé, we have continued to perfect our winery located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Casa Abril Vineyards and Winery is a modern Oasis in the Southwestern

We had Raymond (the owner) all to ourselves for our tasting. What an education we received! He is personable, funny & so informative! We were able to take our time & just soak in the experience... more »

We visited this winery in 2016 and all their wines were delicious. We had a case sent home and are still working through a few bottles. You just open the 2014 bottle of zinfandel and it is amazing. It is so smooth and so flavorful with no harsh overtones and I'm not a red wine person. if you are in that area you should definitely make a stop there.
Absolutely the best presentation we have ever experienced. Raymond the owner will take you on a journey from past to present on the history of the vineyard. His animated personality keeps you focused on the wine while learning the differences on what you are tasting. The wines are phenomenal! Please make this a stop you won't be disappointed.
