The malvasia was very good! we served it with appetizers of asparagus tart, steamed artichokes and marinated pork tenderloin with a chimichurri sauce.

I have to just say thank you! I finally opened the wine you gave me last night and it is beyond FANTASTIC! I’m usually more of a red wine drinker but your white is delicious. Very unique the way the flavor starts out one way when it hits your tongue but changes subtly into something else when it hits the back of your palette. I’m not adept with words or describing wine, I know
what I like and what I don’t but your wine deserves so much description for its uniqueness. Out of curiosity, are you selling it anywhere and when will the red be ready?

Thanks again and Kudos! April Gonzales


​Hello! I work with Lisa Mercer at ACC Health and have tasted your white wines. I especially like the Chardonnay, if fact, I am having some right now!!! Wishing you good fortune and success with your new winery! Looking forward to tasting you red wines soon. Please keep me posted on any wine tasting you may have in the future.
"Buona Fortuna!" on your adventure!

I don't tweet, but do you have a Facebook page I can "like?" Great wines. Looking forward to trying more of them. Enjoyed meeting and dining with the both of you.

Have your Event at Pasando Tiempo Winery


Hold your event at Pasando Tiempo Winery. Wines may be purchased by the glass and also by the bottle to take home. In addition to our wine, we also provide catering. Just let us know. Another recent event was "Cinco De Vino" a fund raiser for the Leukemia Society held on May 4. And always, designate a driver. Have a large group? Consider hiring a driver as Diamonds and Divas did on their get-together at the winery in 2013.

We wish you all the success in the world. Please let us know if you need any help.

I was surprised when my friend Martha Carpenter, wife of Pasando Tiempo Vintner, Chris Carpenter presented me with not 1, but 3 bottles - one of each of their first vintage of each of the varietals. Upon uncorking the Chardonnay at room temp, I thought the better of it and placed it in the fridge uncorked for about 20 or 30 minutes. My guest and I loved the bottle and the equisite dry mouth feel. Before uncorking bottle #2 a couple weeks later, this one the Malvasia Bianca, I gently enrobed it in a fresh blanket of ice for an hour and remembered Martha's tasting notes it should have fresh pear pineapple. Just as she said it was a high note of pear and pineapple, nice and dry on the tongue
but bright and crisp fruitiness. I have to admit, I have been hoarding my bottles and haven't yet dared open the final of the 3 bottles. I have no doubt it is destined to be my favorite - the red - a luscious blend Martha says will please for sure. I'm looking forward not only to that bottle, but the nuances some age will give to the first vintage of these three and future bottlings.
Spend a little time enjoying them my friends.

Looking forward to tasting your first bottling. I hear the Malvasia   Blanca is wonderful.  See you at the Corrales Bike and Wine Tour in April.
