one-of-a-kind wedding and event venue located in Albuquerque's North
Valley. The spiritual and calm feeling,
the manicured lawns, and the romanticism of a fully-operational winery will

spaces in a unique setting surrounded by cottonwoods, our lush vineyards, a
beautiful pond and flowing fountains.

architecture, fine hand-crafted wines, attention to detail and commitment to
service are just part of what we offer at Casa Rondeña Winery. We invite you to share the experience.

of our property, a no-obligation consultation to find out exactly what your
vision is, followed by our suggestions for time, structure and price. We want to make sure that we provide you
with the highest level of customer service and the clearest information.
Casa Rondeña has three event spaces:
the Great Hall, the Rotunda, and the 1629 Club. As a working winery the barrels, casks and
winemaking equipment add to the charm of hosting your special event at Casa
Rondeña. All three areas are suited for
ceremonies and receptions, and include indoor and outdoor space.
The Great Hall is the original Casa Rondeña Winery fermenting room. Modeled after a Moroccan souk with a
gorgeous vaulted ceiling, it is our largest indoor space on the property. To the east of the Great Hall is the Great
Hall Garden. This picturesque outdoor
space includes a lawn and patio area nestled between our grape vines and
octagonal room hosts a stunning domed ceiling and ornate tile work reminiscent
of architecture Mr. Calvin has experienced overseas. Connected to the Rotunda is the Barrel Room. This unique space is where our award-winning
wines age in large oak barrels. The
aroma of wine and oak fills the room and gives your guests an authentic Casa
Rondeña experience. Just outside the
Rotunda and Barrel Room lies the Founder’s Garden, a quaint outdoor space
accented with Middle Eastern style archways and a fountain centerpiece.

those regulations is the noise level.

etc...) can be outside for your ceremony and/ or reception as long as they are
Hours of Operation
The Village of Los Ranchos
governs our hours of operation. Because
we are located in a residential area, all private events must be shut down by
10:00pm as a courtesy to our neighbors.
Because Casa Rondeña is a
winery and produces alcohol on the property, we are not allowed to serve beer,
hard liquor, other wines, or champagne.
The liquor laws only permit us to serve the Casa Rondeña Wines that we
sell on the property. There are several
different ways that we can set up your wine bar. You can purchase cases of wine, pay by the bottle, or offer a
cash/ credit bar. We also make batches
of sangria that you can purchase and are in the works of making a wine cocktail
menu to give you and your guests more variety.
**Wine club members receive additional wine and rental fee discounts**
Casa Rondeña has very
limited parking accommodations. Your
event will have up to 45 parking spaces available to you and your guests. The number of spaces you receive is determined
by what is happening on the property on the day of your event. Additional parking is provided at Taft
Middle School and a shuttle is required to bring your guests to and from the
winery. Please note that Casa Rondeña
does not provide a shuttle service and you are responsible for hiring/
providing someone for that service.
