Santa Fe Wine Festival -Las Golondrinas

Santa Fe Wine Festival, Las GolondrinasAs you may already know wine festival is my favorite holiday of the year and the Santa Fe Wine Festival is one of my top two!  It is set in the historical setting of Las Golondrinas.  Las Golondrinas holds a special place in my heart as my grandmother remembers playing there as a child.  It is a 200 acre Spanish colonial museum complete with original buildings and costumed docents who greet you at the gate.  The lines are minimal compared to the Albuquerque and Bernalillo Wine Festivals and that is what I love about it.  My husband and I make a weekend out of it as we stay at the eco spa just down the road.  Here are the details and Happy 4th of July!
