Wines of the San Juan

Wines of the San Juan The tasting room of Wines of the San Juan is nestled in the heart of the San Juan River Valley in the beautiful Four Corners region of northwestern New Mexico. The worldclass tailwater fishery on the San Juan River below Navajo Dam provides a year-round, unequaled trophy trout habitat. Fly fishers know this quality water as a fishing paradise. A high desert setting at 5,600 ft. with long sunny days, cool nights, and deep sandy clay soil is the combination providing a unique microclimate for producing rich and fruity wines. Come visit and explore the territory.

Taste and experience our New Mexican wines in the rustic tasting room located 6 miles below Navajo Lake State Park on Hwy 511 at Turley.
