The restaurant and wine bar at Arroyo Vino offers a menu featuring small plate fare designed to be shared amongst friends. A unique and ever-changing list of wines by the glass brings another convivial element to the dining experience. Perhaps most unique, the restaurant's wine list is composed of the more than 600 bottles found in the adjoining fine wine shop. Diners may choose from a small, value-driven list of bottles in the restaurant, or wander the wine shop, and select any bottle from the store shelf.





5:30 PM ~ 9:00 PM











The Wine Shop at Arroyo Vino specializes in finding exceptional wines and great wine values for its customers.

The New Saturday Tasting Schedule

We wanted to create a better experience in our regular Saturday tastings, so we came up with a format we are very excited about.


2nd Saturday - Comparison/Showdown

4th Saturday - Seminar


The 2nd Saturday - Comparison/Showdown is our continuing exploration of themes, but with the identities of the wines hidden until you've finished the tasting, that is you'll be tasting 'blind'. We might give you a theme/geographic location/grape, but the actual wines will be hidden from view.


This Saturday, March 14th, will be a Comparison/Showdown tasting - with the weather warming up this week we will present a selection of white wines that show expressions of character along a theme.

The Tasting Table will be open 2-4pm. $10, credit applied to $25+ purchase


The 4th Saturday - Seminar 'formal' event will be a sit down presentation, where we will conduct a more structured tasting, with the occasional special guest and food pairing. These events will start at2pm and calling ahead to reserve seats is highly recommended.


We will be bringing in wines to fit the day, and basing the selection on old favorites and new finds to create a fun and informative afternoon. The alternate Saturdays will be filled with a myriad of other themes/grapes/characters as we schedule them.


Each week, we will email details of the upcoming event, with all the relevant information.

LOCAL FLAVOR "OFF THE BEATEN TRACK" MAY 2013 Given that the teetering small-market economy of Santa Fe already supports several independent retailers of the ilk, coupled with the reality of Arroyo Vino’s location–– concealed by piñon in a pretty commercial enclave off Camino la Tierra, not exactly on a beaten path––themoxie alone would have made good print. But, for owners Brian Bargsten, sommelier, visionary and something of a showman, and his pragmatic business partner, builder and developer Mike Mabry, it wasn’t nearly enough. They proceeded to put on the area’s most innovative wine events under big-top tents in the namesake arroyo behind the store where they staged tastings of 55 still and sparkling Rosés (this year’s is scheduled for June 15), another with 60 top-notch Italian wines and one with scores of Pinot Noirs, each extravaganza accompanied by live music and food. These pop-up affairs were a prelude to something else that even the partners themselves hadn’t quite defined.
ABQ JOURNAL "BRAVO TO ARROYO VINO"november 2013 Bravo to Arroyo Vino. The food, the creation of chef Mark Connell, is original, creative and delicious. The presentations are beautiful and the service was professional. Save room for dessert.
I admit that I was not among the first to grab a seat when the restaurant opened in late March. I’d heard the place was expensive. And the location — 15 minutes west of the Plaza off 599 — is not the mainstream. But friends suggested dinner here and now Arroyo Vino is on my list of places to recommend to friends with splurge money who appreciate fine food. (Our dinner for four, without wine or other beverages, was $131 before tax and the tip.)
Although it’s far from Santa Fe’s restaurant centers, Arroyo Vino is easy to find, even in the dark. We couldn’t see the building at night from Camino La Tierra, but a large sign marks the driveway intersection.

FOODIES. OENOPHILES, and las Campanas-ites rejoice! The already popular Arroyo Vino wine, beer, and spirit emporium has added a classy restaurant to the mix, giving residents of one of Santa Fe's most luxurios neighbourhoods another reason to stay close to home. More cause for celebration is that the opening of the Arroyo Vino restaurant ( marks the return of one of our gourmet-mad town's most talented young chefs, Mark Connell. Recharged and hungry to rally his fans, Connell, who deliciously Burst onto the local scene with the Guadalupe district's Max's restaurant, took a year off from manning the stoves following the birth of his son, Finn. While Arroyo Vino's small-place menu may be simpler and cheaper than the one that could be found at a up scale Max's, it's certainly no less luscious or provocative. The restaurant's airy dining room, which opens alongside the wine shop, is sleek , modern, and comfortable. it's a nice mix of casual and fashionable, with exposed light bulbs and white tablecloths.
You'll fit in whether you're dressed up or dressed down.
PASATIEMPO "VINE DINING"july 2013 Those who would follow chef Mark Connell to the ends of the earth are in luck. Connell, formerly of Max’s and Tomme, can be found no farther away than Arroyo Vino wine bar and restaurant, out toward Las Campanas. Connell’s cooking, graced with fresh, locally raised ingredients, is smart and intuitive. He’s inventive, but not radically so. Even when he’s creating definitive contrasts, his dishes make sense, both intellectually and on the palate. It’s rare that one of his preparations, no matter how imaginative, puts you off.
Being adjacent to the wine shop of the same name allows Arroyo Vino to offer something new in dining experiences: a wine cellar that you can peruse. For an additional $20 corkage fee, you can have anything found in the shop served with your dinner. The restaurant offers wines by the glass as well as a “What We’d Drink List” of bottles. No corkage fee there.
"Top 10 Dishes of 2013 / Crispy Suckling Pig" December 2013 / January 2014 Mark Connell at Arroyo Vino goes from strength to strength! Starting at Max's a few years back, and now taking on the task of appeasing and pleasuring the palates of the Las Campanas community, his skill and aplomb in the kitchen belie his baby face. With food this good, word spread quickly and soon townsfolk as well were heading out 599 to be wooed. I visit restaurants for a variety of reasons but seek out Connell's creative cuisine when i want to be surprised, provoked and culinary entertained. His Crsipy Suckling Pig with Kimchi Consommé, Vermicelli and Snap Peas that I enjoyed this past summer still lingers in my mind - and is, happily, still on the menu, albeit in another clever incarnation. Connell continually challenges himself, cooks to the beat of his own drummer and, I think, needs to win a James Beard Award or Food & Wine Top Ten Chefs in America honor.
Santa Fe New Mexican
"Find the perfect wine match for that holiday party or feast" December 2014 Wine can be scary. For people who don’t drink a lot of wine, speak French or travel to Sonoma, Calif., every chance they get, wine lists and wine shops can be a mystery, a touchy foodie gauntlet where you’ll get the word terroir thrown at you like you’re expected to somehow know what it means and how it affects what you want to drink. And if you fail, you’ll get thrown out into the cold night like the peasant you are and have to make your way blindly through the snow to the closest available drive-thru. Luckily, this is not quite true.
