Here at Casa Abril, we are firm believers of Vivir
meaning, not only 'To Live' but, more importantly, To Celebrate!
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 construct, advance and perfect our winery located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque in the Enchanted State of New Mexico. With the native Roadrunners trotting up and down the grape rows, Casa Abril Vineyards and Winery is a modern Oasis in the Southwestern desert.
Now we are expanding our line of delicious wines to include a Riesling, a Muscat, a Sauvignon Blanc, and a Sangiovese! We have something for every taste, so come in to our cool, southwestern tasting room, and enjoy Vivir
to the fullest!
