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.

Winery Dinners

The Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta is proud to promote the following restaurant winery dinners.  At each dinner, a spokesperson will be present to introduce all wines to guests at a set time with a special wine pairing menu. Please call the host restaurant for time, price and reservations.

Santa Fe Wine & Chile’s Artist of the Year

Robert Striffolino was born in New York in 1950 and was raised on Long Island. Although from his childhood he could draw spontaneously with extraordinary skill, he never took a formal art class, feeling that his drawings were so personal he could allow no one—not even teachers—to interfere with his art. Instead, he majored in architecture at Ohio University.
