This tiny tasting bar is tucked into the rear of Fiesta del Reyes plaza, and can be easy to miss. However it qualifies as one of the great cheap thrills of Old Town. The tasting bar is the outlet of the local traditional winery and horse ranch of the same name, and the odds are good that the cowboy behind the bar will be a family member of the owners. A glass of chilled Sangria freshly made throughout the day with one of their own premium wines is a great value. Or you can try an inexpensive tasting flight of multiple wines and receive a free souvenir glass! -deTraci Regula
