D.H. Lescombes Winery & Bistro

D.H. Lescombes Winery & Bistro has a 4.5 star rating with over 1150 reviews. 

Here is what a happy customer said:

“Came here to have a late lunch and was greeted immediately by the host. The inside decor was very nice and included a wine bar near the front entrance. Upon being seated we were offered a wine sampling by the waiter along with bread and herb butter. Because I was eating late my party and I split an appetizer and an entree salad. Everything tasted wonderful (the steak was cooked perfectly) and our waiter was so attentive. I definitely will come back for dinner and dessert and to try some of the wine pairings.” - Review by Lauren R.

A bit about “The Lescombes Family

Lescombes Family Vineyards winemakers Herve and sons Florent and Emmanuel Best New Mexico Wine

We are sixth-generation French winemakers whose family’s lineage has spanned 3 continents. Our father Hervé Lescombes created the successful Domaine de Perignon winery in Burgundy, France.  He was drawn to New Mexico due to its similar climate to his native Algeria, where he and his ancestors grew grapes and made wine for generations. In 1981, he made his first plantings in New Mexico. Later in 1984, his first vintage was bottled.

“Over the past few years, my brother Emmanuel and I have taken over managing the business while our father spends his time enjoying the vineyard from his on-site home and wine cellar he built himself. My brother, Emmanuel, is the Viticulturist and oversees the vineyard’s operations, while I manage the winery. The careful balance of nature and nurturing, both in the vineyard and winery, leads each wine to its full potential. Our passion for making great wines is only surpassed by our desire for them to be shared in good times with your friends and family.”

Blake’s Lotaburger

Here is what a few customers have said about Blake’s Lotaburger:

“I’ve never eaten at this lotaburger and I definitely will be back. Burritos were the size I remember when they first came out. Fast and friendly service too. Though I did have to witness a couple of men harassing a worker because they couldn’t figure out how to pick up their call in orders. If you have a problem, ask like a person not a jerk. And ask for a supervisor. I’m sure it wasn’t the workers idea to keep door locked. Jerks. Hopefully the kid just brushed it off and went about his day.” - Review by Tresa Mendoza

“I always come to Blake’s for a Green Chili Cheese Lotta Burger, every time I come home for a visit. The Hatch Green Chili never dissapoints, just the right amount of kick to remind you you are alive. Good amount of food for a fair price. The onion rings were just perfectly crispy. Also nice to support a local NM business.” - Review by Jeff Mocho

We know that slow internet is a common problem, and people often reach out to their provider after they’ve already talked it over with the company themselves. If an individual determines there’s not anything wrong on either end of your connection - like when we come into work one day only to find all computers aren’t working properly because someone else has wirelessly deposited files onto them without permission–we’ll make sure you have better luck connecting every device under control! We can also provide new equipment if needed.

Can you help us with compliance?

We are the best at complying with HIPAA, so you don’t have to worry about anything. We can make sure your business stays in line and complies 100% of time!
