Thanksgiving Day 2021 | Thanksgiving Wine Pairing

Give Thanks this Holiday Season

Each Thanksgiving, we typically celebrate with our annual Thanksgiving Buffet or our special plated Thanksgiving Dinner. We would usually close early to allow our employees time with their families for the holiday.

Our guests across New Mexico have always supported and celebrated with us on these special days, and we are grateful for each one of you that has included us as part of your celebrations.

Thanksgiving 2021 Holiday Closure

This year, we have decided to close our locations on Thanksgiving Day. This will allow our hard-working employees to enjoy the day with their families.

Now more than ever, our employees have continually shown up, worked hard, and dedicated themselves to the passion and excellence we strive for. Each and every day, the experience we are so proud to offer our guests is because of our employees.

We are grateful to each of our employees for the work they do. We are also grateful to all of our guests and wine club members for your support, understanding, and continued patronage.

3 Suggestions for Thanksgiving Wine Pairing

Our hope is that Thanksgiving 2021 will be happy, healthy, and memorable for each of you. Since we are closed this year, we are offering our suggestions for three wines for a Thanksgiving wine pairing experience we think you’ll love!

A lot of different variables go into what makes a perfect Thanksgiving wine pairing. For our picks, we chose three very different wines. Each one has strengths depending on what you’ll be serving. Also, keep in mind, personal preference also plays a role. When in doubt, drink what you like. But, also don’t be afraid to try something new.

1. D.H. Lescombes Heritage Series Chardonnay

This special wine is a result of many years of perfecting our farming, winemaking techniques, and oak implementation. We use our own highly aromatic Chardonnay grapes from New Mexico’s largest family-owned vineyard.

The flavor profile leans to a lightly creamy texture with notes of bread, almond, soft minerals, and oak. Because of the processes used to craft this wine, it is highly palatable and perfect with Thanksgiving holiday foods. Secondly, due to its palatable and food-friendly nature, it makes a good all-around pair.

2. D.H. Lescombes Limited Release Renaissance

Our Heritage Renaissance is continually one of our guest and employee favorites. Because this wine strikes a nice balance between velvety fruit and spiced tannins, it is a nice choice for Thanksgiving meals. Secondly, if your holiday meal consists of ham, this red wine creates a pair that can’t be beaten. Since it is a remarkably food-friendly wine, it’ll also play nice with the rest of your holiday menu plans.

3. D.H. Lescombes Heritage Bellissimo

Talk about a perfect celebration wine! Our Bellissimo makes a perfect pair not only because it’s sweet and bubbly. In addition, Bellissimo is ideal because if you celebrate a New Mexico-style Thanksgiving, it makes a perfect accompaniment. What’s a “New Mexico-style Thanksgiving,” you ask? For starters, try red chile on your mashed potatoes. Or secondly, take it all the way and have tamales and enchiladas!

No matter if you are serving a “traditional” Thanksgiving dinner, or introducing a more regional tradition, Bellissimo will fit in very nicely.

In Conclusion

When it comes to wine pairing, it’s an art and a science. There are general guidelines for enjoying the best pairings. But, when it comes down to personal preferences, drink what you like. You can browse our online wine store, or check our fall favorites, to see what might fit your taste. No matter what wine and food you choose, we send our wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving!

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.

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.

Supporting Habitat For Humanity With Wine Release Party

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.

What: Release Party for D.H. Lescombes 2014 New Mexico Cabernet Franc Limited Release

When: July 25 Deming | July 26 Las Cruces | July 30 Farmington | August 2 Albuquerque | August 10 Santa Fe; 6:00 – 8:00 pm
