Private Events

For more than 20 years, we've helped create engaging and memorable birthdays, showers, anniversaries, small receptions and corporate meetings. Whether it's a catered affair with award-winning Gruet wines at every course or a simple board meeting, let us help you plan your next event.


Conveniently located in greater Albuquerque, Gruet Winery serves as an excellent private party venue offering two versatile indoor spaces and an outside seasonal patio adjacent to the winery.

The Tasting Room - capacity: 50 seated, 70 standing/reception style

Available outside of daily public operating hours, our carved wood tasting bar, amber toned walls and indirect lighting give this space a warm, intimate appeal perfect for parties. Optional, fully-staffed wine tastings are easily conducted here.

The Barrel Room - capacity: 50 seated, 70 standing/reception style

Airy with cathedral style ceilings and flooded with natural light, our barrel room offers a compelling visual feature of racked barrels behind a clear glass wall, giving guests a glimpse of the winery action. An elegant chandelier sets the mood for evening affairs. Our barrel room is available to rent anytime.

Seasonal Patio - capacity: 70, suitable for standing reception only with high bar tables

In fair weather, your guests can enjoy our seasonal patio for reception-style gatherings that include our wine service and catered appetizers. Furnishings and tenting can be rented through a preferred vendor to design a reception that's right for you.
