Winter at Los Poblanos
December - February

The tour and tasting are designed to showcase some of the best art, architecture and winemaking that are proudly New Mexican.

We'll head over to the farm to meet our friendly flock of animals, learn about our organic kitchen gardens (yes, we're still growing things in the winter!) and our sustainable beekeeping practices. Then we'll visit the lavender fields with a set of binoculars to try and spot some migratory birds and take in the beauty of the Sandia Mountains glowing pink just before sunset. The Sunset Safari is available exclusively to our lodging guests. $25 per adult, $15 per child, maximum of four guests.**
Slow down and take in the serenity and beauty of the farm with a leisurely walk or bike ride. Los Poblanos is adjacent to the Bosque Trail, with several routes alongside the Rio Grande River that are lovely for walking or cycling. Right across the street, the Los Poblanos Open Space is a wildlife habitat with miles of walkable farm roads that hosts impressive amounts of migrating birds this time of year. If you're seeking more adventure, we have favorite trails for hiking, mountain biking and showshoeing to share.
