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.
