About This Activity

Bike For Brain Trauma Wine Tour & Festival is New Mexico's premier cycling and wine tasting event. Taking place on the afternoon of Sunday, August 17th, the afternoon will include a scenic & casual ride through the beautiful Los Ranchos area and Rio Grande Valley, stopping at three amazing locations for wine tasting at your leisure, including Vernon’s VIP Lounge, St. Clair Winery and Casa Rondena Winery. At each wine stop, you will sample 4-5 wines and are encouraged to enjoy the venue by ordering tapas and a glass of wine. The finale will culminate at Casa Rondena Winery’s gorgeous property for a tasting of their award-winning wines. Before the festival begins, you may get a massage, then freshen up in the Bride and Groom’s Suite of the 1629 Club with complimentary services from our hair and makeup team. With a glass of wine in hand, you may tour the beautiful grounds, check out the local fine art, jewelry and spa vendors as well as make bids on the fantastic Silent Auction Items. Next, stroll to the music under the vines by Best of The City Artist, Shane Wallin & Melange as you sample gourmet tastings from ABQ’s Top Restaurants, like El Pinto, Pizzeria Luca, Yannis, Cocina Azul, Vintage 423, Il Vicino, The Chocolate Dude and more.
