Spotlight on Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta

Over 30 years steeped in history

Each year, Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta carefully curates programming that features our Santa Fe restaurant community, wineries from around the world and top local and national talent in the sommelier and wine education realm. With over 30 years steeped in history and evolution of the wine and hospitality industry, we take pride in highlighting the best in class each year at our events. Prior to each Fiesta our Board of Directors and our Event Committees rigorously vet and review qualifications for our Winery of the Year, Champagne of the Year and new this year, Importer of the Year. We have always worked to seek out special wineries, families and partners that reflect our mission and compliment the elevated status of Santa Fe and its outstanding restaurant community.

Santa Fe Wine & Chile’s Artist of the Year

"Indian culture has in the past been ignored to a great extent. It is for me . . . a rich source of creative expression. An intertwining of my Indian culture with contemporary art expression has given me a greater insight concerning my art." – Kevin Red Star

Santa Fe Wine & Chile Importer of the Year

1972, it began; 2022, it continues. This is not an epitaph. KLWM is alive, well, and Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta is proud to celebrate fifty years of them bringing you the best wines France and Italy have to offer.
