Favorite Wine: St. Clair Meritage & DH Lescombes Cabernet
On our travels west, we specifically drove to Deming, NM on recommendations to eat at the best Mexican restaurant in the U.S. (the recommendation was absolutely, positively correct). After eating we visited a nearby vineyard, Luna Rossa Winery, and headed out to a state camp ground for the night. Low and behold, along the way we passed unexpectedly St. Clair Winery. Quickly braking our RV, tossing everything around inside, we turned across traffic and made it luckily into the parking lot. And here begins a most pleasant visit. Relaxed location without the hustle of either eastern or western vineyards. Laid back tasting was served in an intentional low-keyed manner. With 180 acres cultivated and forty wines under four labels ranging from $8-to-$80, we noted it was going to take awhile to recover from this visit. If there was a tasting fee, we were not made aware of this since I think the host just looked at us as "these poor lost souls from SC, heaven help them" and just started to graciously pour . Some really interesting red wines were to be found here. We knew this place was going to be a winner when we met a 92 year old gentleman who has been coming here daily for the past 24 years for a complimentary Cabernet covering the glass with a napkin between each sip. Interesting Cabernets and Gewurtztraminer.

This is the parent winery of Blue Teal, DH Lescombes, St Clair, San Felipe, and (last time I checked) Mademoiselle and Santa Rita Cellars. They also do the heavy lifting for Kokopelli in Arizona (using Kokopelli's grapes). With so many labels, the selection is predictably large, with only a little overlap from label to label. Most of the wines are solid, everyday potables. Designate a driver and spend some pleasant time in the tasting room.
