Rio Chama Gourmet Wine Pairing with La Chirapada Winery

We are very proud to offer the second installment of our popular Gourmet Wine pairing trip on the Rio Chama. This trip will feature the wonderful wines of Northern New Mexico's oldest winery, La Chirapada, and the inventive cuisine of Chef Scott Downs. Join us on the Rio Chama for the most scenic multiple day river trip in New Mexico. The Rio Chama, a major tributary of the Rio Grande, in Northern New Mexico, flows through a multi-colored sandstone canyon whose walls grow to 1,500 feet. This trip is a unique and amazing way to experience the world famous Rio Chama, experience remarkable artisan meals featuring food and wine from the Northern New Mexico region, and support local farming. The river runs through areas that are designated as wilderness or as wilderness study areas. We begin the 33 mile river trip outside of the the alpine town of Chama, NM and float down into a stunning and colorful sandstone and limestone canyon finishing up near the renowned artist village of Abiquiu. The upper reaches of the river are well known for the fantastic trout fishing and gorgeous pine trees lining the banks of the river. This stretch of river hides many treasures within the high reaching walls from hot springs to homesteads to ancient dinosaur tracks. We will spend two nights at camps that are right on the river's edge and backed up by excellent opportunities for hiking and the exploration of numerous side canyons and vistas. Each night we will experience a gourmet 4-course meal prepared by Executive Chef Scott Downs from Taos' acclaimed new restaurant, Old Martina's Hall. Scott has worked in some of New Mexico's most innovative kitchen's including the Artichoke Cafe and Farina Pizzeria and Wine Bar in Albuquerque. His emphasis on seasonal fresh and local ingredients has earned him numerous accolades throughout New Mexico. La Chiripada Winery & Vineyard is tucked away in the lovely Embudo Valley of northern New Mexico. Owned and operated by the Johnson family, La Chiripada has been creating award-winning wines for over 30 years and is northern New Mexico's oldest winery! The vineyard was established in 1977, following the traditions of the first Spanish settlers, and the name La Chiripada(meaning "a stroke of luck") was adopted from the original ranch where the winery is located. Along on the trip to present and discuss La Chiripada's many wonderful wine varieties will be the head winemaker Joshua Johnson. Josh grew up in the family wine business as a child and returned in 2002 to take over the winemaking and manage the business. La Chiripada has always produced fruit-driven wines and grown special grape varieties that are an expression of this unique region. Josh has continued this same tradition, experimenting with new grape varieties every year. Josh has taken contract winemaking jobs for three vintages in New Zealand to expand his winemaking knowledge.
