Gruet Winery was founded by Gilbert Gruet, founder of the Gruet et Fils and Paul Laurent champagne houses.
With the acquisition of land in 1984, his son Laurent, daughter Nathalie, and Farid Himeur relocated to New Mexico and began planting Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their first harvest, in 1987, yielded 2,200 cases (released in 1989) of very fine sparkling wine, which immediately captured the delighted attention of consumers and the wine press, and which have subsequently won many gold medals in prestigious wine competitions. As of 2006, Gruet was distributed nationally and produced 100,000 cases of sparkling and still wines.
