Yet another busy summer is behind us, and the best time of the year for Santa Fe is here! Yes, “best” is quite a qualifier, but after 40+ years in New Mexico, I have come to believe that September and October make for truly sublime travel to Santa Fe. The weather is perfect, the town is not as crowded, and there are still many things to do and see. One of the big events takes place this month as wine enthusiasts from around the world pour into town (pun intended!) for the Santa Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta.

The Wine and Chile Fiesta is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and continues to be a huge draw for those who love to have their palate tickled with the zest of New Mexico’s spicy cuisine while also enjoying fine wines.
