Imperial Kir Raspberry Sorbet Float

Nothing says Valentine’s Day quite like the color pink! So, our rose-colored D.H. Lescombes Imperial Kir is a perfect companion for the holiday. Our Imperial Kir is a crisp, festive, semi-sweet wine with a (literally) bubbly character. Based on the ‘Kir Imperiale’, a raspberry-flavored drink first made popular in the late 1800s, we decided to put a soda shop twist on this old-world classic.

Inspired by a recipe by The Cookie Rookie, we added a few scoops of raspberry sorbet to create a delicious, sweet treat. Notes of citrus in the wine lend a bit of sophistication to an otherwise playful float. We like to top it with graham crackers and fresh raspberries, but feel free to try any other toppings that might strike your fancy (maybe some yogurt chips?). Perfect to enjoy on your own, or to split with a special someone this Valentine’s Day.

St. Clair and Community Come Together to Support Cancer Warriors

St. Clair Winery of Deming, NM, held their annual St. Clair Winefest the first weekend in October, with proceeds benefitting Deming & Luna County Cancer Support for the sixth year in a row. The local non-profit provides a variety of support to cancer patients in the community. They also provide outreach services for general education, early detection, screening programs, transportation assistance, and general cancer awareness.

This year’s Winefest donation was $5,433, which is over $2,000 more than last year’s donation. Major growth is attributed to the community support that has grown every year since its inception.

Each year since 2010, St. Clair has paired with the organization to donate some of the proceeds from their annual Winefest, which has become a destination for those looking to have a great time while also supporting a great cause. The largest portion of the fundraising stemmed from the Silent Auction, which is full of donated items from regional businesses, including St. Clair. The local winery also donates admission fees, pink ribbon sales, and vendor fees for the good of the cause.

“It’s amazing to see the support from all the local businesses that donate to the silent auction,” said Joanna Costilla, Patient Advocate from Deming & Luna County Cancer Support. “We’re extremely grateful to St. Clair for hosting this event and the generous amount of work they put into donating to help those in need. We’re also grateful to the community who continually supports the organization and our local cancer warriors.”

“It all went really well,” said St. Clair Tasting Room Manager, Lora Robinson. “We couldn’t have asked for better weather, and the turnout from the community was wonderful. We’re thankful for all the businesses and individuals who donated to the silent auction this year, it was a huge success. We can’t wait to do it again next year.”

Silent auction sponsors included: 1st New Mexico Bank, Allie Pelayo, Angel Nails, Black Hat Trading, Big-O-Tires, Bill Schnuk, Border Pest Control, Carol Smith, Car Quest, Cats, Circle S Western Emporium, Cliff & Terri Paulk, The Cookie Jar, Crafter’s Den, Dawn Lint, Deming Coke, Deming Luna Mimbres Museum, Deming Mattress, Diaz Farms, Dollar Tree, El Rey, First Federal Credit Union, Forghetaboutit, Foxworth Galbraith, Furniture Gallery, Gabe’s Fitness, Gene’s Equipment, Hofacket Law Firm, LLC, John Deer South Plains Implement, Karl’s Embroidery & Screen Printing, Kmart, La Fonda, Larry’s Music & Sound, Las Casuelas, The Lescombes Family, Mango Maddie’s, Marty & Will Willis, Mimbres Valley Feeds, Napa, The Patio, Pepper’s, Punkin Gose, Quality Inn, Rancher’s Grill, Samantha Crim, Shifflet Farms.
