Owner description: At ANASAZI FIELDS WINERY we hand-craft dry table wines from fruits and berries other than grapes. Unlike most "fruit wines", our wines are NOT SWEET dessert wines. Their delicious dryness makes them the perfect accompaniment to any meal. Our wines, such as Plum wine, Apricot wine, Peach wine and Blackberry wine are crafted from local and other New Mexico fruits and berries. We also produce several dry grape-based wines and an off-dry cranberry wine for the holiday season. All of the wines, except the cranberry, are aged on oak for two or more years before bottling.ANASAZI FIELDS WINERY sits on the western edge of the old village of Placitas, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Orchards and vineyards surrounding the winery are watered by a spring-fed irrigation system that dates back over a thousand years to a time when the Anasazi people farmed the Placitas Valley. Nearby are petroglyphs which we have reproduced on our wine labels.

The winery hosts many art shows, concerts, poetry readings and special events during the year. If you get a chance to attend one of these events, by all means go! I've personally been to many over the years and especially enjoy the Placitas Arts & Crafts Show here (and at 2 other venues in Placitas) every mid-November. I don't believe that during a normal business day there is food available for purchase, just wines. But, I do know that during many of the winery events, food is catered in for sale.
Anasazi Fields is located in the lovely, quaint village of Placitas. I-25 north from Albuquerque. Take Exit 242 and head east (right) towards the mountains, about 6 scenic miles. Camino de los Pueblitos is on the left, just before you get to the Presbyterian Church. A new sign was put up recently which makes spotting this road much easier now. The driveway to the winery will be on your left at the fork in the road and is clearly marked.
The area is shady and peaceful. The wines made here are not the usual grape-based wines, but instead made from other fruits such as raspberries and apricots. The owners are friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful.

We attended a local concert hosted by the Anasazi Fields Winery for a special event and just fell in love with the cozy atmosphere, ambiance and great food catered by The Seasonal Palate. Though chilly outside, an open bonfire was going, and a rustic covered arena was set up with tables and chairs for diners and extra chairs for those who wanted to just chill out and enjoy the wine and music.

Wines are truly delicious! Staff was very informative and helpful without being pushy. We purchased two bottles of red wine and will definitely go back for more.

Though the wine cellar was not open this particular evening, one of the owners invited us to return for a tour, which we plan to do. He also spent time with us giving a history of the vineyard and how they make certain wines.

The Anasazi Fields Winery is very community oriented and they host several art shows, concerts and other events throughout the year. They will also rent their facilities for certain special occasions.

Bottom line: The Anasazi Fields Winery features delicious local wines and has a charming off-the-beaten-path location in Placitas, New Mexico. It's worth a visit.
