Vintage Albuquerque events are the perfect opportunity to learn by exploring a variety of wines in a fun, social environment. It’s also a chance to taste wines from all over the world without traveling or a passport. Our events aren’t about hints of this, notes of that. It’s about experiencing the world of wine in a friendly, approachable way. Sure, some may have a more sophisticated palate, but what it ultimately comes down to is finding something you like and enjoy it! With 5 fun and different days of events, you’ll excite all 5 senses. Choose one, choose them all!
