Located in Mesilla not far from I-10 and downtown Mesilla. Formerly known as St. Clair Winery & Bistro. The Lecombes family are six-generation winemakers emigrating from Burgundy France. They bottled their first vintage in New Mexico in 1984 from their state-of-the-art facility near Deming.
DH Lecombes has their 200-acre vineyard west of Deming where they produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Moscato, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Chenin Blanc, and other varietals. The elevation of their vineyards is 4500 feet which gives warm days and cool nights which they feel provide some of the very best growing conditions for the very best grapes. The proof is in their success.
You can enjoy DH Lescombes wines and bistros not only in Las Cruces but also at their other locations in Deming, Alamogordo, Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Their Las Cruces location is well known locally for being one of the area’s finest restaurants. Their menu was created as a collaboration between the Winemaker and the Head Chef. Just wait until you see their menu.
I would suggest that you call ahead for reservations if you are going on a weekend evening as they draw a large crowd at this popular winery and bistro. They also do private tastings, on-site and off-site catering, group meetings, conferences, weddings, and holiday parties.
