Heart Of The Desert


Our Story

Eagle Ranch is the home of New Mexico’s first and largest producing pistachio groves which began in 1974 by The Schweers Family.  It is still owned and run by the family, and is a totally self-contained operation, with growing, harvesting, processing, and marketing occurring on-site.

Heart of the Desert wines were added to the product line in 2002. The vineyard added to the diversity of the farm. 12,000 vines were planted initially, and the yield of their first crop, was encouraging enough that additional vines were put in, for a total of 24,000 vines. The seven different varieties of grape vines harvested each year are: Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Shiraz, Riesling, Malvasia Bianca, and Gewurztraminer, making the production of a wide range of wines possible.
