Welcome to Our Winery
Beneath the blue skies and within the natural folds of the New Mexico desert, a doorway from long ago opens to a new oasis born from a wine lovers passion. The lush and vibrant vineyards of Casa Abril create a new chapter in the 400 year old Vigil/Romero legacy, bringing into focus the spirit of Raymond Vigil and his family. Combining the music of laughter, the closeness of family and the desire to produce a successful product, Casa Abril Vineyards and Winery is more than its fragrant, well-rounded wine; it is a Spanish Family experience.
Casa Abril began in 2001 under the care and direction of Raymond and Sheila Vigil. Providing pure New Mexico wine made with Spanish and Argentinean grapes of Vinifera Tempranillo, Granacha Tinto, Malbec, and Zinfandel varieties. Coming from the Spanish families of Vigil and Romero who date back to the colonial times of Spain, we are committed to the tradition of our Spanish legacy with our dedication to the vineyards at Casa Abril.
Producing Award-Winning Estate Wines energized by our caring hands, imbued from root to delicious finish by the devotion and joy of our Spanish heritage; Casa Abril Vineyards and Winery brings to your table something at-once old as the Conquistadors, and new as our freshly bottled Rosé.
Every year since 2001, we have continued to plant more and more acres of grapes. Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals have been awarded to our wines in prestigious New Mexico contests.
