There’s probably no better complement (and compliment) to exquisitely prepared food than a fine wine, which is why the Wine & Chile Fiesta draws such enthusiastic crowds: Every event and meal of the five-day extravaganza demonstrates that Santa Fe cooking has gone far beyond burritos washed down with a margarita.
It’s also quite fitting that La Fonda is among the sponsors of this gourmet event, as our restaurant, La Plazuela, is known for elevating New Mexican classics to the kind of fare that commands a celebratory bottle. La Fonda also provides event space for the week’s eight Wine Seminars, on topics from Syrah to Champagne to — yes — pairing wine with your green chile enchiladas. And, don’t miss our Wine Maker’s Dinner, September 27th — enjoy Chef Lane Warner’s exquisite seasonal delights with wine pairings by Merryvale Vineyards.
Autumn is hands-down the favorite season for foodies in New Mexico, with the aroma of chiles roasting under brilliant fall colors and azure skies. What better occasion to break out your best turquoise-and-silver bling and raise a glass to Santa Fe?
