Combining the release of one of our most highly-acclaimed wines and some specially-paired bites, we are planning an evening to delight our guests.
“We appreciate the work that Habitat for Humanity does to enrich the lives of the families they partner with,” – Florent Lescombes, President “We’re proud to be working with them.”
The new wine release, D.H. Lescombes Limited Release 2014 Cabernet Franc, happens to be one of the Lescombes family’s most highly-coveted varietals—and for good reason.
“We received the top award, the Sweepstakes Award, at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition back in 2009 for our Cabernet Franc,” recalls Melissa Landeros, Winemaker. “It’s a prestigious competition and to be awarded as the best red wine out of over 4,500 total entries was huge for us.”
Our release party guests will be presented with a glass of the newest release alongside wine-inspired hors-d’oeuvres selected by our chefs, including pot roast sliders, skewered herb shrimp, garden casserole, milk chocolate truffles, a station of cured meats and cheeses, and more. Guests will also have access to purchase from the limited supply at the event, ahead of the public release slated for August 20th.
“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 the Habitat for Humanity’s local chapter. We encourage guests to reserve your spot by purchasing tickets in advance since space is limited.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. St. Clair Winery is family-owned and operated by the Lescombes Family and has long supported nonprofit causes in New Mexico.
