About Eileen and Richard Reinders

Born and raised in Santa Fe and very knowledgeable about the area. We live on the vineyard and enjoy meeting visitors to our winery.

Eileen and Richard Reinders purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Eileen and Richard Reinders chose New Mexico

We found the property and saw it had an abandoned vineyard. We reclaimed the vines and opened our Estrella Del Norte Vineyard wine tasting room. We used the Spanish version of my great great grandmother's name which translated to "North Star" and named our location Estrella Del Norte Vineyard. The label on our wines depict North Star reaching for the north star with the vineyard behind her. Our 2009 vintage Pinot Noir took a gold medal at Finger Lakes International Wine competition (wines from all 50 states, 19 countries and 6 Canadian provinces). We have approximately 30 different types of wines in our winery -- including our 'world famous' Holy Molé red wine with a little spice, a bit of chocolate and a spark of red chile!

What makes this cottage unique

Our vineyard location is situated in an area where outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, rafting and fishing are conveniently located. Casinos and hot springs are close driving distance. Just 15 minutes from the heart of Santa Fe where numerous galleries, museums, top restaurants, music and festivals can be enjoyed. Beauty and massage spas are just minutes away. We can assist guests with reservations and day-trip planning.

The area was beautiful and the casita was very private. We loved having a wine tasting when we arrived also. The kitchen is equipped for minimal cooking, but we enjoyed the local places for our meals. The owners and staff were very friendly and the stay was enjoyable and relaxing.

Estrella Del Norte Vineyard Casita

  • 5 of 5

The casita was private and quiet. We love the bed in the master bedroom and unlike hotel beds had no problems falling off to sleep. Our early May stay revealed the budding Pinot Noir grape buds and vines starting to leaf, and the complementary wine tasting was very educational and fun. Yes, this is a working winery although most of the vineyard acreage is not on site. For those who want to experience the real New Mexico, we highly recommend this property and the hosts, Richard and Eileen are beautiful people. Why pay for the inflated Santa Fe experience, whereas the local fare here is just as good and cheaper. Gabriels, Sopaipilla Factory, Road Runner Cafe, El Parasol, Sugars (Embudo) and Rancho De Chimayo are just a few of the local places to experience the best of New Mexico cuisine, and yet, Santa Fe is only a short drive away for those seeking the city different. Many of the New Mexican artist have their own galleries outside of Santa Fe to avoid the high overhead. Avoid the crowds and glitter traps for tourists, and experience the quiet side of New Mexico that locals enjoy. That said, we still love Santa Fe because we use to live there, but we look forward to coming back to this beautiful casita.

Great getaway spot in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect. Secluded enough for privacy but close enough to restaurants and entertainment to keep you busy. The property owners are very nice and gave us plenty of information about the town. Comfortable stay. Wish we would have had time to take advantage of the on-site winery.

Perfect peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to escape the hectic pace and noise of the city. Eileen and Richard are fabulous hosts and the Casita is perfect for a couple, or two, who want to enjoy some quiet time alone but have access to downtown Santa Fe with just a 15-20 minute drive. Also, if you love great wine, this is a true boutique winery and definitely the place to stop, sip, and stay a while. The Casita was just as the pictures portrayed. It was clean and very cozy. Eileen had great recommendations for local eating as well. We couldn't have asked for a better place to unwind, or for better hosts. Thank you, Eileen and Richard, for sharing your place under the stars.

Friendly hosts; quiet, peaceful atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

Eileen and Richard have perfectly balanced rustic charm with comfort and personal space. They stay just close enough to see your needs are met, but never infringe on your privacy. Their free wine tasting to renting clients is fun and informative. Frankly, we quickly felt we'd 'come home' in our little casita midst the vineyard.
