Originally from the Champagne region of France, the Gruet family founded their first Champagne House in 1952. The family came to the U.S. in 1981 and traveled extensively throughout the southwest and California searching for the perfect climate and soil conditions needed to create excellent sparkling wines. After careful analysis they chose New Mexico. In 1984 Laurent Gruet, Farld Himeur and his wife, Nathalle, moved to New Mexico, bringing years of combined experience and knowledge in the tradition of champagne.
Nowadays, the Gruet wines - Brut, Blanc de Noirs, Blanc de Blancs Vintage and Chardonnay - are available throughout the nation from New York to Hawaii.
The winery offers tours and tasting outdoors on the patio or indoors. We also provide a reception area for weddings and banquets.
