Enjoy the finer things in life AND enjoy the unique flavor of New Mexico on our Bread, Wine and Chocolate Tour. Begin the day at a lovely Santa Fe café that specializes in fresh, sustainably sourced, and downright delicious food.  Menu items include various forms of coffee, tea, chai and hot cacao to start.  Then dig into Lemon Ricotta Spelt Pancakes, Buckwheat Banana Pancakes, Baked Eggs with Crème Fraiche & Herbs, or one of many other delectable items. Next, you can walk off breakfast in and around historic and rustic Santa Fe Plaza.  Here you’ll have a chance to soak in the adobe ambiance of Santa Fe and peruse the handmade crafts presented by Native American artists in front of the Palace of the Governors.  Todos Santos Chocolates and Confections and Senor Murphy Chocolates are within a block of the Plaza.  You can also peruse the many shops that are tucked away in the nooks and crannies of old adobe buildings that were built hundreds of years ago by settlers in the Spanish colony of Nuevo Mejico. You Then back to the van for a whirlwind tour of a number of other fantastic Santa Fe chocolatiers that are not near the Plaza. Then, we will take an hour at lunch to escape New Mexico to France at a delightful, hole-in-the-wall French café.  Start with a bowl (yes, bowl) of coffee and proceed to the crepes, quiche, sandwiches and salads that have made this place a Santa Fe must.  Or share a Country Market Basket for 2 and enjoy baguette, cheese, butter, pate, ham, mustard, salad and dessert.   If you can, leave room for an éclair or some other decadent French pastry. Take a well deserved rest from eating as we drive through the rugged countryside to one of northern New Mexico’s many wineries.  65 different wines from four of New Mexico’s finest vineyards will be available for sale.  You will get to taste 6 delicious local wines. While in the mountain region north of Santa Fe, we’ll take a a little detour to visit the lovely and historical Santuario de Chimayo Shrine.  Built in 1816, this National Historic Landmark, is famous for the story of its founding and as the most important Catholic pilgrimage site in the U.S. If you still have room, we will have dinner in Santa Fe at an authentic Mexican restaurant.  Be prepared to answer the uniquely New Mexican question, “Red or Green” regarding your chili sauce preference.  Or be adventuresome and answer “Christmas” for the full chili experience!
