Wine Selection at Julia Restaurant
There are many epicurean pleasures daily on offer at our on-site house of haute cuisine, Julia, A Spirited Restaurant & Bar—an establishment named for and honoring the one and only Julia Staab, who hosted many social gatherings here on our grounds back in the day. Along with the elegant and inventive cuisine itself—and the wonderful ambience, the fine lineup of specialty cocktails, and more—those pleasures include an exhaustive wine list. Indeed, so extensive and varied is our La Posada de Santa Fe wine cellar that we make one of the great destinations in the New Mexico capital for the most discerning of oenophiles!
Surveying the Wine-scape at La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa
With a wine list some 12 pages long, you won’t exactly be hurting for options in the grape department at Julia, A Spirited Restaurant & Bar. Wherever your tastes land on the wine spectrum, you’ll be delighted by what our in-house sommeliers have on hand!
Perhaps you’re feeling in the mood for a white wine, in which case you might consider a Pino Grigio from Ca’bolani, Italy or the Conundrum White Blend from the California vineyards of Charles F Wagner. If the occasion calls for a little “sparkle,” so to speak, maybe you’ll opt for the Moet & Chandon Imperial, Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin, or Mionetto Prosecco.
If an impeccable red is what the doctor ordered, consider our Merlot from Leonetti Cellar in Washington’s Walla Walla Valley, any of our numerous Robert Mondavi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon vintages, or the Hartford Court Zinfandel from Highwire Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Among our high-end collection of Pinot Noirs, meanwhile, you’ve got a local choice from Gruet Winery right here in New Mexico.
Naturally we’ve barely scratched the surface of the wine-scape here at Julia, A Spirited Restaurant & Bar, and of course your server will be happy to walk you through the decision-making process if you’d like to more thoroughly explore the wine list.
The 2019 Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta

On Thursday, September 26th, Julia itself will be host for one of the Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta shindigs: a winery dinner pairing Executive Chef Tom Kerpon’s dishes with a variety of wines from the esteemed Elk Cove.
