Charm and quality abound in our distinctive adobe casita on our 10-acre gated vineyard estate -- a setting unique to Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico.

Price based on two-person occupancy.
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
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. My maternal great-great grandmother was Native American and her name translated to 'North Star'. We used the Spanish version of 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 over 30 different 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! Today, we have 3 vineyard properties making us the largest Northern New Mexico grape growers.
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 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.
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.
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.
Excellent in every way! Gracious hostess, helpful staff, historic and picturesque surroundings, peaceful, clean and comfortable.
When Eileen welcomes you to this adorable adobe casita on their vineyard, it immediately feels like home. We enjoyed very much the free wine tasting, and be careful! You may end up (like we did) spending a lot more on wine than on lodging -- and happy we did.
The casita is small and charming, with coffee and ability to hangout on the beautiful patio in privacy among the vines and trees. If you are traveling with other people, know them well, as the bedrooms are separated from the living area by curtains. Worked really well for us as a family unit, tho, and having the two baths was helpful getting ready for the Opera and morning.
Really a great spot whether you are visiting Sante Fe or the Opera -- and it is a wonderful setting with lovely people.
Go and enjoy!
We stayed at the Casa Estrella for the weekend for a girls trip to Santa Fe. Eileen was a great hostess and gave us recommendations on local places to eat at and visit! Coming from the heat of Texas it was nice to wake up to the cool morning and beautiful view of the vineyard. This was a great place to unplug (no TV) and enjoy the wine and scenery. We did the wine tasting and the hardest decision was what to buy. My personal favorite was the Zozobra. There is a small gift shop and garden to enjoy a glass of wine and some cheese.
The Casita was bigger than I imagined from the pictures. Two bedrooms (with curtain enclosures) are perfect for a girls weekend or two couples. The kitchen was perfect for what we needed. We were able to cool waters and sodas and fruit for snacks in the fridge. The patio area is huge and has a covered area for when the quick afternoon showers roll in.
Our casita is located on a working vineyard where we have daily wine tasting and events and planting & harvest parties and relaxation with a glass of wine. Occupancy is for 2 persons. Maximum is 4 persons and there is a $50 charge for additional guests.
Located less than 20 minutes north of the heart of Santa Fe, and minutes from the best golf courses and gambling casinos, Ojo Caliente hot springs and Georgia O'Keefe country. We are located on the historic 'High Road to Taos' and near the beautiful Village of Chimayo with the sacred Santuario de Chimayo holy sanctuary. We are also close to the Holy Cross Church in Santa Cruz, NM founded in 1695 which makes it one of the oldest operating churches in the US. Taos is less than 1 hour away. You can call our winery at 505-455-2826 to order wine to be stocked in your casita for your stay. We work the winery daily so we arrange a scheduled check-in for our casita with you.
