Sounds of popping corks and clanking wine glasses will be plentiful in many homes this Memorial Day weekend.
The New Mexico Wine Festival at Albuquerque and New Mexico Wine Festival at Las Cruces will have to wait until 2021. But New Mexico Wine, the business association representing New Mexico’s 390-year-old wine industry, has come up with other ways wine lovers can stay connected with their favorite wineries and discover new ones. The association’s website, nmwine.com, has a one-stop shop page of all its New Mexico winery members with various promotions and discounts. Customers can opt for curbside pickup or have wine delivered safely and sanitarily to their door.
“We have been getting a ton of hits on that site,” said Chris Goblet, New Mexico Wine executive director. “That’s been very popular, and so we are really pleased that it worked, and we are going to take that same concept and turn it into an active wine sales page, so that’s cool.”
