07 Sep Our Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta Experience
It’s that time of year again. With the beginning of fall comes the Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta — an annual five-day weekend of events featuring some Santa Fe’s best in culinary arts. The goal of the fiesta is to couple 75 of our city’s most excellent restaurants with the sophistication and wines of over 90 national wineries. Patrons enjoy cooking demos, wine seminars, winery luncheons and (of course) dinners. The weekend culminates with the Grand Tasting at the Santa Fe Opera where all participating Santa Fe restaurants and wineries serve samples of their best food and wine.
With all the excitement in the air, we here at Casas de Santa Fe crafted a very special and luxurious experience for you and your travel companions during the Wine & Chile Fiesta. Check out the details of this exclusive one-time package below:
