Every vine has a story, and nearly four hundred years ago, New Mexico's wine journey began when the first Mission grapes were planted in 1629. Taste this rich legacy, the oldest in the United States, in Donna Blake Birchell's account of the turmoil and triumph that shaped today's burgeoning industry. Despite greedy Spanish monarchs, prim teetotalers and the one-hundred-year flood's gift of root rot and alkaline deposits, New Mexico winemakers continue to harvest the fruits of sun-soaked volcanic soils and clear skies, blending their family stories with the vines and traditions of the Old World. Raise a toast and join Birchell on the trail of New Mexico's enchanted wines as she explores the heritage of more than fifty wineries in four distinct wine-growing regions.

Meet the Author

Donna Blake Birchell, author of two books on local New Mexico history, Carlsbad and Carlsbad Caverns and Eddy County, developed a passion for history through the inspiration of her history buff parents, William and Dorothy Blake. While doing research for her other books, the native New Mexican discovered a lack of written history of New Mexico's fascinating wine industry. This discovery, coupled with her ever-evolving love of wine, led Birchell to correct the oversight. Although New Mexico is diverse in many ways, she found that one thing remains constant: the friendliness of the people. She was consistently greeted with eager smiles, hardy handshakes and enough stories to fill three volumes.
