Vivác Vineyards

Vivác (Vee Vok) in Spanish means “high-altitude refuge” and Vivác Winery is exactly that, sitting at 6,000 ft above sea level in the mountains of Taos, New Mexico. Surrounded by apple orchards this lovely winery is the original family farm where brothers Jesse and Chris Padberg  were born. Today the winery and vineyards is a partnership between the brothers and their wives. Jesse,the main winemaker, gained his passion by studying in Chile, tasting wines in his free time, and later backpacking in Europe where he found his calling.
