The perfect refreshment wine! Soleil’s Pomegranate Mimosa takes our classic Mimosa to wonderful new heights by blending in fresh-pressed pomegranate juice from California with fresh-squeezed orange juice from Florida. Pomegranates represent one of the world’s most highly-prized superfruits, making this Mimosa truly unique and enticing. For best enjoyment, gently tilt the bottle a few times to mix, pop the top, and your next refreshment will be filled with a delicious wine cocktail that is as lively as it is refreshing.

|Our vineyard is located 47 miles west of Deming, New Mexico and sits at an elevation of just over 4500'. The hot, sunny days and cool, enchanting evenings often differ in temperature by 30 to 40 degrees or more. The soil is sandy, loamy, and nutrient rich with excellent drainage, which makes the vines less susceptible to root rot and other diseases. It is this terroir that makes it possible to grow the best grapes in New Mexico. Our Viticulturalist, Emmanuel Lescombes, manages the day-to-day operations of the vineyard, which produces between 7 and 10 tons per acre on average. We currently have 180 acres cultivated with varietals that include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Syrah, Muscat, Malvasia Bianca, and many others. Our vines are planted in a specific spacing of 8'X5' which allows over 1000 vines per acre, as well as allows for proper sunlight and watering. We also carefully prune the vines each year during the dormant months to ensure the best possible growth. We are currently in the process of expanding our vineyards and plan to have over 220 acres by the end of the year.
