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. Gruet is distributed nationally in 48 states and produces 100,000 cases of sparkling and still wines annually.
Join us in our tasting room and sample a selection of our award-winning sparkling and still wines.
