Welcome to our website!
Black Range Vineyards is a small winery in the town of Hillsboro, New Mexico where we grow grapes and make our wine. On the main street through town is where you will find our tasting room. Our patio and umbrellas are out front ~ you can’t miss us!
Eighty miles southeast of Hillsboro is our wine shop and tasting bar, Vintage Wines. Located in historic Mesilla, we are just off the plaza. Come and enjoy a bottle of wine – meet old friends or make new ones.
Besides the Black Range Vineyards label, we proudly serve the best local wines from the Land of Enchantment. We offer a light selection of tapas and fine cigars. Sit back on one of our patios and enjoy a flight of wines, a little live music or one of our signature plates. Relax and enjoy a cigar with a glass of Port and some good conversation. Stop in and visit, we know you’ll have a good time!
It’s the Year of the Horse, which falls on Jan. 31 on the lunar calendar. A lucky year, according to the Chinese. The Year of the Horse kicks out the Year of the Snake — not a good year considering all the turmoil, conflicts and tragedies in the world.
As the Chinese say, “A good horse never turns its head to eat the grass behind.” So, look ahead, not back.
If you’re an entrepreneur or small-business owner, it’s time to sit tall in the saddle, harness your energy, and rein in your fears.
Get ready to make great strides in the year of the horse. It should be a very good year for entrepreneurs.
In the Asian calendar, each year is associated with one of 12 animals. In the Year of the Horse, look for fast change and powerful energy. Horse years are generally believed to bring good fortune and luck.
We could all use some of that!
What I imagine as the perfect holiday gift is always a bottle of good cheer. (or a new car.) What gift could be more sought after, fought after, or more perfectly wrapped? A good bottle of wine makes a most thoughtful gift, is always festive and can be tied with a bow or bagged with the best. It helps to have a good idea of what you are looking for before being overwhelmed by choices in a supermarket or wholesale shop. Remember too, that price does not always equal quality or value. Sure, that $50 Bordeaux might look like the perfect gift, but with a little homework under your belt, you may easily be able to afford two fine bottles, and what could be better than that? Many wine stores have tasting bars, which make choosing fun and easy. Buying wine from your local winery is also an educated purchase, as most of these can be tried on before buying. It makes sense to gift a bottle of wine that you have tried and liked. That way, if you are invited for dinner and no one else cares for the wine, there is always more for you.
Happy Holidays and Cheers!
As seen on a recent ride through the Black Range. The day was so nice there was no turning back for home. The impertinence cost us several drinks at the Buckhorn Saloon and a nights lodging nearby. No sore feelings though.
