I'm thankful I'm not writing this column around the first of April, because many people would not believe my claim that fine sparkling wines -- especially fine sparkling wines made by a Frenchman -- come from New Mexico.
Wine From India Gruet Winery was the vision of Gilbert Gruet, who was born in the small village of Bethon in the Champagne-Ardenne region of France. Despite coming from humble roots, he founded the Gruet et Fils winery in France in 1952 and began producing Champagne.
Wines Of India While traveling the Southwestern U.S. in 1983 and tasting some local wines, Gilbert Gruet had the inspiration of starting a vineyard in high desert near the isolated ghost town of Engle, New Mexico. What imaginative foresight! Engle is about 17 miles east of the Rio Grande and the small town of Truth or Consequences, which is over two hours south of Albuquerque. Gruet planted a test vineyard of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. His son (and winemaker) Laurent and daughter Nathalie then moved from France to New Mexico to develop Gruet Winery.

Another summer on the East End means plenty of new wines to taste. Across the North and South forks, vineyards are pairing their new vintages and labels with exciting events, making a visit to the vineyards an essential.
Red Wine In India On the North Fork, Martha Clara Vineyards is releasing three new vintages this summer, including two of their 2014 Northern Solstice Blends. The Northern Solstice Rosé has notes of watermelon, strawberry and hints of cotton candy. Northern Solstice Blanc offers hints of ripe pineapple and exotic tropical fruits. Martha Clara’s third release of the summer is a new vintage of Northville Blanc, an eponymous blend that demonstrates the dynamic terroir of the Northville district on Long Island. Northville Blanc is a blend of 65% Chardonnay and 35% Viognier.
Wine From India Sparkling Pointe will hold their 6th Annual Carnaval Celebration on Saturday, July 25 from 1 to 6 p.m. The event celebrates the second release of Cuvée Carnaval Rouge (a sparkling red wine with notes of black cherries and cinnamon), and features the Samba Nova Drum Band and Brazilian Carnaval dancers. The celebration has also inspired the second release of NV Cuvée Carnaval Rosé, a slightly sweeter style of sparkling rosé with notes of watermelon and strawberries. A new release of Sparkling Pointe’s 2005 Brut Seduction will also be available for you to taste this summer. The wine is a mature sparkling blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with notes of almonds, brioche, and vanilla.
