FARMINGTON — Wine lovers can test their knowledge about the Land of Enchantment’s array of wine and statewide destinations leading up to “National Drink Wine Day.”

The New Mexico Tourism Department launched the “New Mexico Wine & Where" quiz online for one to explore the state’s different wine varieties, according to a press release.

“National Drink Wine Day” is on Thursday, per the press release.

“This is a fun and engaging way for us to elevate New Mexico’s grape growers and wineries at a time when local businesses need support,” NMTD Cabinet Secretary Jen Paul Schroer said in the press release. “Due to the pandemic, many winegrowers have been unable to showcase and sell their product though events, so this is an interactive way we can share the heritage of New Mexico’s viticulture and encourage folks to buy New Mexico True.”

New Mexico viticulture dates back to 1629, according to the press release.
