    The Mission grape has a history in New Mexico dating back to 1629. With a growing demand for sacramental wine to supply the expanding number of mission churches, Franciscan friars, out of necessity, defied orders from the Spanish Crown and planted Vineyards for wine production.

    Mission is a red grape, made like our other red wines, where we ferment with the skins to extract color. Mission vines, however, produce large bunches with large berries. The berries' large size leads to a sizeable juice-to-skin ratio, which creates a pale red wine with soft acid and balanced tannins.

    You'll find a taste of aromas of strawberry, violets, and blackcurrant, combined with flavors of chokecherry, fresh fig, and a juicy blueberry finish.

    This Old World wine pairs perfectly with homemade flautas, a smothered beef burrito, chicken tacos, and Menudo.
