St. Clair locations are now branded D.H. Lescombes, but the Lescombes family will continue to make St. Clair wines just as they have for over 25 years.

FAQs about the name change at our locations

In the spring of 2019, St. Clair locations, including our Bistros in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, and Farmington, as well as our Tasting Room in Deming, adopted the Lescombes family name.

Specifically, our bistros are now D.H. Lescombes Winery & Bistro, and our tasting room is D.H. Lescombes Winery & Tasting Room.

But don’t worry, we will continue to craft New Mexico’s Favorite St. Clair wine!

Why did you change your name?
We adopted the Lescombes family name to better reflect who we are and tell the story of our heritage.

Did the ownership change?
No, the Lescombes family proudly continues to own and operate each location just as they always have.

So this isn’t a new place?
No, it’s actually older than new. It’s a culmination of our six-generations-long winemaking legacy.

Why “D.H. Lescombes?”
“D.H.” stands for our parents, Danielle & Hervé Lescombes, who emigrated from France in 1981 and later opened four St. Clair locations in New Mexico. We’ve also crafted our D.H. Lescombes label wines since 1991.

Is “St. Clair” gone?
No, we will continue to craft New Mexico’s favorite St. Clair wines to be sold at retailers across New Mexico and available for sale online. We are proud of our St. Clair brand and it will continue to be part of the Lescombes family.

Did anything else change?
We introduced wines under our new 6∙3∙1 Signature Series. We also reserved the distribution of our entire line of D.H. Lescombes wines, including 6∙3∙1 Signature Series, to only our company-owned locations while continuing to ship our St. Clair wines for distribution to retailers statewide.

What remains the same?

Our passion to craft the highest quality wine and perfectly-paired foods for enjoyment with friends and family. Since not much has changed, we’re confident that you’ll continue to be delighted with your experience with our St. Clair products and at our D.H. Lescombes locations across New Mexico.
