“This is a passion of mine,” said Amaro Winery founder and owner Bernd Maier. The German winemaker moved from his home near Baden-Baden, Germany, to southern New Mexico in 1983 to open a vineyard at Elephant Butte. He moved to Las Cruces in 1989, earned a master’s degree in agricultural economics from New Mexico State University and was the vintner at NMSU. He purchased 20 acres of land in Mesquite for his vineyard and opened Amaro Winery and tasting room in 2009.
