Supporting LOCAL FOOD BANKS WITH A WINE RELEASE PARTY

Combining the release of one of our top-tier wines and some specially-paired bites, we are planning an evening to delight guests across the state of New Mexico—and using it as an opportunity to support a worthy cause; to fund local food banks.

The new wine release, D.H. Lescombes Limited Release 2014 Petit Verdot, is one of the Lescombes family’s favorite varietals due to its consistent fruit production and bold, hardy character.

“We mature each of our Limited Release wines on French oak for at least one year,” explains Melissa Landeros,
Winemaker at St. Clair. “In this case, we aged for three years on oak and an additional year in the bottle which
resulted in a softer, well-balanced wine.”

Release party guests will be presented with a glass of the newest release alongside wine-inspired hors-d’oeuvres selected by St. Clair Winery Chefs. Guests will also have access to purchase from the limited supply at the event, ahead of the public release scheduled for February 15th.

“Our D.H. Lescombes Limited Release wines are a selection of the best varietals grown and crafted in New Mexico,” noted Melissa Landeros, Winemaker. “The entire process—in the vineyard, in the barrel, and into the bottle—is controlled and monitored carefully to ensure it reaches its full potential.”

The admission fee of $15 per person is being donated in full to local food banks in New Mexico including Roadrunner Food Bank, Echo Food Bank in Farmington, and The Food Depot in Santa Fe. All three non-profit organizations are focused on the goal of ending hunger in New Mexico. St. Clair is encouraging guests to reserve their spot by purchasing tickets in advance since space is limited.

What: Release Party for D.H. Lescombes 2014 New Mexico Petit Verdot Limited Release                                                                                                     Where: St. Clair locations in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, Farmington, Deming, and Hervé Wine Bar in Santa Fe
When: January 9, Las Cruces | January 11, Deming | January 14, Farmington | January 15, Santa Fe |
January 16, Albuquerque; 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Why: Highly-acclaimed wine & food with admission benefiting local food banks

ST. CLAIR AND COMMUNITY COME TOGETHER TO SUPPORT CANCER WARRIORS

Just in time for Christmas, the St. Clair Winery team presented a check to Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County from the proceeds of the 8th annual St. Clair Winefest. The local non-profit provides a variety of support to cancer patients in the community. They also provide outreach services for general education, early detection, screening programs, and general
cancer awareness.


“We provide transportation assistance to cancer patients within Deming and Luna County” explains Patient Advocate, Joanna Costilla. “We have vans that we offer to transport patients to and from out-of-town appointments at no charge. We also have a voucher program that can also help defray the cost of gas for qualifying patients who drive themselves.”


“Year after year, our amazing community comes together to support this local cause,” said Lora Robinson, General Manager at St. Clair Winery & Tasting Room. “We’re grateful we are able to continue to carry on this tradition to benefit local cancer warriors and thankful for the continued support from our guests and employees.”


This year’s Winefest donation was $8,407.10, which has been credited to both attendance and silent auction donations collected from local businesses.

Deming & Luna County Cancer Support can be reached at (575) 546-4780

To show our gratitude to the brave men and women who have served, the participating locations will offer a complimentary meal as a small thank you for their sacrifice.

 on behalf of all Americans.”


The special Veterans Day menu includes a selection of the most popular items at each location, not including alcohol or gratuity.
To claim a complimentary meal at St. Clair Winery and Bistro or Hervé Wine Bar, veterans and enlisted service members simply need to show proof of military service.

St. Clair Winefest 2018

Cancer Support & St. Clair team up for Winefest

We are pleased to announce the 24th annual Winefest, benefiting Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County for the eighth year in a row.

Festivities are slated for Saturday, October 6th from 12:00-9: 00 pm and continuing on Sunday, October 7th from 12:00-6: 00 pm. Enjoy a large selection of food vendors, arts & crafts vendors, upbeat live music and dancing, a silent auction, tours, cork pulling & grape stomping competitions, fun activities for the kids, and a wide selection of local New Mexico wines and craft beer.

Admission at the gate is only $5 and includes a complimentary wine glass. Free admission is offered to all active-duty military and law enforcement, as well as those with promotional free admission tickets, although donations will be accepted at the gate.

“This event has continually grown to be one of our largest fundraisers,” said Joanna Costilla, Patient Advocate at Cancer Support of Deming & Luna County. “The money raised has a great impact on the lives of many local cancer warriors. When you’re fighting cancer, the last thing anyone should be concerned with is how you’ll afford getting to your treatment.”

We will donate 100% of admission, ribbon donations, vendor fees, and silent auction to the local non-profit. Last year’s donation was a substantial $9,300 which helped offset the cost of travel for many local cancer patients who often attend treatments many miles away.

“We’re excited to be continuing this great partnership,” said Lora Robinson, Tasting Room Manager. “It supports a great, local cause and we really have a fun time with it.”

Live music provided by local favorite “Caliente” will be featured on Saturday evening, with a variety of other popular bands with a great selection of tunes throughout the weekend.
