Supporting New Mexico Autism Society

Just in time for National Autism Awareness Month, we will be pairing with the New Mexico Autism Society for our upcoming wine release party.

Release Party to benefit local NM Autism Society for autism awareness monthThe new vintage, 2013 D.H. Lescombes Petite Sirah Limited Release, has proven to be one of our most highly acclaimed reserve wines.

The Release Party will celebrate and unveil the newly bottled vintage while also raising funds for the local non-profit. Release party guests will be able to enjoy a glass of our new release alongside wine-inspired hors-d’oeuvres selected by our chefs, including steak bites, special chocolate-based appetizers, a selection of manchego, gouda, blue, and cheddar cheeses, and much more. Release Party guests will also have the opportunity to purchase bottles ahead of the public release on May 15th, allowing guests first access to the limited supply.

“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—from the vineyard, to the barrel aging, to 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 the New Mexico Autism Society, based in Albuquerque, with local chapters in many communities statewide.

“All funds stay in New Mexico and are used to support our mission of making a difference in the lives of those affected by autism,” stated Sarah Baca, Executive Director of New Mexico Autism Society. “We serve locally through legislative advocacy, educational workshops, first responder training, social outings and support groups.”

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is characterized by repetitive behavior patterns, difficulties with communication and social interaction and is often accompanied by sensory irregularities. Today, 1-in-68 are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder—or ASD. It’s often referred to as an ‘invisible disability’ since a person’s physical appearance is typically unaffected.


“As a parent of a child on the autism spectrum, I’m extremely proud we are able to support this cause,” said Daniel Gonzales, Creative Content Manager. “Not only will this help raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding autism, it will also help fund programs that benefit those in New Mexico who live with ASD.”

D.H. Lescombes Mourvèdre Limited Release

D.H. Lescombes Limited Release Mourvèdre Wine Release Party To Benefit Roadrunner Food Bank

The Lescombes family have recently announced the upcoming release of one of their most highly-anticipated wines. D.H. Lescombes Limited Release Mourvèdre has been sold-out for over 8 months due to its high-demand and limited-availability. A Release Party—slated for mid-January—is in the works to celebrate and unveil the newly bottled vintage.

From 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Monday, January 22nd at St. Clair Winery & Bistro in Las Cruces, and Tuesday, January 23rd at St. Clair Winery & Bistro in Albuquerque, release party guests will be presented with a glass of the new release, 2014 harvested New Mexico Mourvèdre, alongside a selection of perfectly paired hors-d’oeuvres, including bacon-wrapped pecan pesto steak skewers, Akaushi beef sliders with avocado crema, wild mushroom and rosemary risotto, and a selection of specialty cheeses. Release Party guests will also have the opportunity to purchase bottles ahead of the full release, which won’t be until mid-February, giving guests the first chance at the limited supply of coveted juice.

We have partnered with Roadrunner Food Bank to donate the admission fee of $15 per person to the local non-profit, which provides and distributes food to local communities across the state.

“Every dollar donated helps to provide five meals to the hungry in New Mexico,” stated Wally Verdooren, Chief Development Officer at Roadrunner Food Bank.

“We’ve paired with Roadrunner Food Bank before and we value and respect the wonderfully positive things they do to impact our local New Mexico communities by helping those in need,” reflected Florent Lescombes, Vice President at St. Clair Winery.

The D.H. Lescombes label, initially launched in 1991, was created by Hervé Lescombes as a way to honor and preserve the family’s winemaking legacy. Named after his late wife, Danielle, and himself, D.H. Lescombes has since been passed down to his sons, Florent and Emmanuel, the sixth-generation of the winemaking family. Along with the new vintage also comes an elegant new black and gold label.

“Our D.H. Lescombes Limited Release wines are of the highest caliber,” noted St. Clair Winery Operations Manager Joshua Gomez, “we craft them in small batches with the upmost attention to every detail, and we are confident that the newest release will be among the best we’ve ever made.”

D.H. Lescombes Limited Release Mourvèdre consistently wins top awards across the country, including a gold medal in San Francisco and two best of class medals—one in Long Beach and one in Houston.

St. Clair Winefest 2017

Planning for Largest Winefest on Record

Event benefits local non-profit, Cancer Support of Deming.

St. Clair Winefest Deming Wine and Beer Festival

(DEMING, NM) — We are pleased to announce our 23rd annual Winefest, benefiting Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County. Festivities will begin on Saturday, September 30th from 12:00-9:00 pm and continue on Sunday, October 1st from 12:00-6:00 pm. Enjoy a large selection of food vendors on-site as well as arts & crafts vendors, upbeat live music and dancing, a silent auction, tours, fun activities for the kids and a wide selection of local New Mexico craft beer and fine wines for sipping and sampling. Admission at the gate is $5 and includes a complimentary wine glass and tasting tickets. Free admission is offered to all active-duty military and law enforcement.

We will donate all proceeds from admission, ribbon donations, vendor fees and silent auction to the local non-profit, Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County, Inc. for the seventh year in a row. Last year’s donation was a substantial $5,433 which helped offset the cost of travel for many local cancer patients who often attend treatments many miles away.

“We’re motivated to make Winefest the biggest entertainment event in Deming,” said Lora Robinson, Tasting Room Manager. “We’re proud we’re able to use the event to support this great, local cause.”

“In order to make this the biggest and best Winefest we’ve ever had, we’ve worked to secure many more additional food vendors, the best local bands, more activities for the kids, and are expanding our beer selection to include more local favorites,” explained Robert Duran, Director of Winery Operations. “The goal is to provide the best event possible for the community, who graciously lend their support every year.”

St. Clair Event Center Hosts “Yappy Hour” to Raise Money For Deming Animal Guardians

DEMING – Rain or shine, Deming Animal Guardians held another successful Yappy Hour fundraiser hosted by St. Clair Winery in Deming this past weekend. Rain didn’t end up being a problem since St. Clair Winery offered its indoor tasting and event center.

“There was a little indoor dancing, pledging and shopping and a little outdoor visiting and tasting happening. It worked out perfectly.” says event coordinator Debbie Troyer.

The event brought in just under $1,400 to help support DAG’s no-kill rescues and spay/neuter programs. Money was raised through pledges taken in a contest that bid Crystal Pena of HELP-NM against Will Jansen of Mimbres Hospital. Each competed for a $100 prize to be given to their charity of choice. Congratulations to the winner, Crystal Pena, for playing along in her kitty costume and raising funds for Luna County’s Early Childhood Coalition.

St. Clair Winery donated use of their spacious indoor special event center as well as $1 for every glass of wine/beer sold, vendors sold beautiful oil and acrylic paintings, hand cut stone jewelry, candles and engravings. Faces were decorated by Megan Lemcke, dancing was provided by EnJ Entertainment and everyone was entertained by the always fun MC Greg Morrow. Belle Pacheco gave away $200 GoodLife VIP gift cards.

“It’s not easy to bring these events together, but the support from our community and volunteers always amazes me. We have a great time at our fundraisers,” Troyer said.

DAG invites you to follow them on Facebook to keep up on all the upcoming and fun events. Next up, “Bowling for Fur-Balls” on August 12 at the Starmax Bowling Center, 333 N. Country Club Road. This will be a No-Tap Tournament for all ages. There will be a Blu-Ray DVD Player raffle, door prizes, music and handmade awards.
