6 Wines To Serve At Christmas Dinner

Whether you are entertaining a few guests or preparing a holiday meal for two, finding the right wine to pair with your meal is not as complicated as you may think.  

Here are a few suggestions.  

D.H. Lescombes Heritage Imperial Kir is based on the ‘Kir Imperiale’, a drink first made popular in the late 1800s. Awarded 90 Points, Gold, Best Buy & Best Sparling, this crisp, bubbly wine gets a touch of natural raspberry that makes the wine semi-sweet. The perfect bubbly wine for any celebration and an excellent aperitif to any meal or party. Uncork the bubbly and bring out the smiles! 

D.H. Lescombes 631 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon offers fresh cranberry on the nose with a touch of ripe black currant and light earth. Awarded 90 Points, Gold, you will find a bit more of a rustic tone to the fruit, yet not overpowering. Turn a great dinner into an unforgettable dining experience by accentuating the fruit flavors in this wine. Pair with lamb shank, pot roast, game, and other flavorful red meats. 

D.H. Lescombes Heritage Pinot Gris is crafted using a minimalistic winemaking approach, which includes allowing the wine to keep its unique, natural color. Awarded 87 Points, Silver, its elegant flavors of citrus zest and tart apple on the palate with a medium body make it perfect for easy food-pairing. Pair with light dishes that include fresh or grilled vegetables, roast chicken, or pasta salads.  

D.H. Lescombes Limited Release Mouvèdre boasts a lovely nose layered with rich aromas of chocolate, cherry cordial, and light leather. Awarded Class Champion, Chairman’s Best of Class, Gold, the moderate presence of oak enhances the wine’s flavors of raspberry, vibrant cherry, and cranberry with hints of vanilla. Pair with fruity jams and heaty dishes.

St. Clair Kiva & Port are perfect for those who love sweet, rich dessert wines that warm your soul. Awarded Double Gold, the rich aromas and flavors paired with smooth, robust sweetness are the hallmarks of these two stellar selections. Our process utilizes French oak maturation under the bountiful warmth of the New Mexico sun. The unique ceramic bottles pay tribute to the people who lived in the Mimbres region 1,000 years ago. These ancient people are a treasured piece of New Mexico’s rich history, well-known for their unique geometrically decorated pottery. Pour a glass or give the gift of New Mexico’s rich history.  

St. Clair Mimbres Red is the #1 selling red wine in New Mexico. Awarded 86 Points, Silver Medal, Best Buy & Highly Recommended, St. Clair Mimbres Red is a smooth, easy-drinking red wine with lush sweetness, appealing to those who enjoy their wine on the sweeter side. Pair with holiday dishes combining sweet and savory flavors for a satisfying dining experience.  

Cheers and Happy Holidays!

Hatch Green Chile: a local staple

Hatch green chiles are one of the most beloved crops in New Mexico, adored by people all across the country. In fact, they are so prized that they even have a festival celebrated in their honor, the Hatch Chile Festival, gathering around 30,000 people each year!

But what are they, and what really makes them so special?

Hatch chiles are long, fleshy, and green. They come in three levels of heat: mild, medium, and hot. They are typically roasted and are traditionally grown and harvested from, surprise surprise…the Hatch Valley!

Although other farms outside of Hatch do produce chiles that they incorrectly refer to as ‘hatch chiles’, nothing compares to the original crop in Hatch Valley because of the soil and growing conditions of the valley that are said to influence the flavor.

They have a very short season, limited to only two months – August and September. However, despite this slim availability margin, there is nothing to fear, because the roasted chiles can be easily frozen and preserved for future use.

Of course, what makes them adored above all else is not the culture, the valley, the soil, or the sweet rush of limited time availability.  No, what really makes them so revered is their flavor. They taste earthier than most other chiles, a taste that gives the impression of constant freshness, with a buttery, smokey flavor that is not only delicious, but also extremely versatile.

Hatch chile has made its way into just about every type of food imaginable, from traditional New Mexican foods like salsa and enchiladas to pizza, sushi, and desserts like ice cream, chocolate, or pie and wine.

We believe that the Hatch green chile that is grown and produced right here in New Mexico is a unique treasure, so we proudly incorporate it into our Signature dishes.

Hatch Green Chile is the star of the show in our Pasta New Mexico. Our executive chefs combine quality linguini with a special cream sauce, topped with lightly golden sautéed chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, red pepper flakes, and provolone cheese.  Pair it with our D.H. Lescombes Heritage Series Pinot Gris, for a savory pairing that will bring a smile to your face.

You can also enjoy our local green chile in our fan-favorite dish, the Southwest Meatloaf, made with quality ground beef, drizzled with mango-chipotle glaze. Take dinner to the next level with our D.H. Lescombes 6*3*1 Malvasia-Riesling.

Taste the tradition!

4 Things to Love about our Frozen Wine Cocktails

Have you tried our frozen wine cocktails?

You may have enjoyed our Frosé (part wine, part fruit, part slushy concoction) during the Las Cruces, Albuquerque, and Deming wine festivals.

Now you can enjoy our new hand-crafted wine cocktails at D.H. Lescombes! Try our Frosé, New Mexico Sunrise, or Piña Bianca while dining with us in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, or Deming.

Here are four things you’ll love about our frozen wine cocktails.

1. Handcrafted Fresh

We believe everyone is as unique as the drink they choose to sip. We carefully handcraft and immediately serve each frozen wine cocktail. It’s a perfectly frosty, frozen treat every time!

2. Quality Ingredients

We proudly use our award-winning wines, real fruit, and beautiful garnish in our Frozen Wine Cocktails.

Try a Piña Bianca at D.H. Lescombes

Our tropical Piña Bianca is made with just the right ratio of our Malvasia Bianca – Riesling blend (631 Series Malvasia-Riesling), our Bellissimo, and real pineapple chunks.

This frozen wine cocktail will make you feel like you’re sitting in a tropical paradise.

Try a New Mexico Sunrise at D.H. Lescombes

The sweet and tangy New Mexican Sunrise is made with D.H. Lescombes 6•3•1 Malvasia-Riesling blended with St. Clair Bellissimo, real mango, with a touch of tajin and chamoy.

This colorful frozen wine drink will make you feel like you’re on vacation.

Try a Frosé at D.H. Lescombes

Our beautiful Frosé is made with real strawberries, blended with our award-winning D.H. Lescombes Heritage Series Rosé. The fresh flavor profile of ruby-red grapefruit, tart raspberry, and strawberry will give you major tropical vibes.

3. Pairings

Try our Frozen Wine Cocktails with some of our popular menu items!

Here are some of our favorite pairings
Our famous Bistro Burger paired with the delicious New Mexico Sunrise frozen wine cocktail.

NM Sunrise paired with our Bistro Burger. The sweet and tangy flavors will complement the rich, juicy burger.

Jalapeno Bacon Wrapped Shrimp paired with our Pina Bianca frozen wine cocktail

Piña Bianca paired with our Jalapeño-Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp drizzled with spicy mandarin sauce. The sweetness of the Piña Bianca will pair nicely with the fruity and spicy glaze.

Summer Berry Salad paired with our Frosé, a frozen Rosé wine cocktail

Frosé paired with our Summer Berry Salad. The fresh, fruit ingredients of the salad complement the flavors, aromas, and crispness of the frozen wine.

4. Most importantly, we love what our guests have to say about our frozen wine cocktails!

“Frosé, you’re everything I never knew I needed.” – Jessica

“Refreshing and Classy.” – Margaret

“So good! We are never disappointed!” – Rebekkah

Go ahead and enjoy one today, because it’s impossible to be unhappy with one of these frozen treats in your hand!

The lescombes family proudly offers complimentary meals for veterans across nm

The Lescombes family will proudly honor all U.S. veterans and active-duty military at our Hervé Wine Bar and D.H. Lescombes Winery & Bistro locations across the state this Veterans Day, Monday, November 11.  

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.

Each of the three D.H. Lescombes Winery and Bistro locations in Albuquerque, Farmington, and Las Cruces will be participating in the celebration, as well as the newly opened Hervé Wine Bar in Santa Fe.

A special Veterans Day menu with a selection of items to choose from will be available to all active-duty military and veterans dining-in during normal business hours on Veterans Day.   


The special Veterans Day menu includes a selection of the most popular items at each location, not including alcohol or gratuity.


“When someone takes the oath of enlistment, the sacrifice they make is immeasurable,” said CEO, Brandon Young.  “We are grateful for those who commit to serve on behalf of all Americans.”

To claim a complimentary meal at D.H. Lescombes Winery and Bistro or Hervé Wine Bar, veterans and enlisted servicemembers simply need to show proof of military service. This can include the U.S. Uniformed Services ID Card, U.S. Uniformed Services Retired ID Card, current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES), Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD214), veteran organization card or by proudly wearing their uniform.  


D.H. Lescombes Winery and Bistro was formerly known as St. Clair Winery and Bistro but adopted the name of their owners, the Lescombes family, in early 2019. The family owns and operates three restaurants, located in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, and Farmington. In mid-2018, a Santa Fe location, Hervé Wine Bar—named after the family patriarch, was opened.

Menu items range from $6-$25 and are offered alongside New Mexico grown, produced and bottled D.H. Lescombes wines available for tableside service or “to-go” retail purchase.
