Rio Grande Wine Selection

 

Rio Grande Winery wines are produced from grapevines grown in our own Mesilla Valley Vineyard 5 miles south of Las Cruces.
The white wines
are typically crushed and de-stemmed, left to cold soak for 12-24 hours, then pressed, cold fermented, and stored in stainless steel before bottling to retain a maximum of the fruit bouquet and character in the finished wines. These wines will be bolder in general and true to the character of the grape, for we add enzymes to help extract flavor and juice.
The red wines are cold-soaked for up to 24 hours between crushing and the start of fermentation. Acid and sugar adjustments if needed are performed at this time. Fermentations are temperature controlled to preserve the wines fruitiness. The young wines are then pressed off the skins and allowed to settle in stainless steel tanks for several weeks prior to racking into French, Hungarian, or American oak barrels. There they will spend 18 months to 4 years, depending on the wine, before final blending and bottling.
