Staff Report
Three New Mexico wineries are joining together to open a tasting room wine bar at 145 Central Park Square in downtown Los Alamos. They are seeking citizen reaction and input for the wine room:
The owners also would like the public to help name the new wine room by taking a survey through May 11 in the Los Alamos Daily Post by clicking here.
Suggested names include:
  • Mingle
  • Uncorked
  • The Wine Room of Los Alamos
  • Wine Theorem
  • Win3 (with the 3 backwards)
  • Other

The ambiance of the new wine room will be “classy but comfortable” with an intimate area with cozy arm chairs, a bar area and an area with tables and chairs.

The new wine bar will offer visitors an opportunity to taste world class wines by the glass or bottle. There will not be a kitchen but small plates featuring a variety of hors d’oeuvres will be available.
Owners Jim Fish of Anasazi Fields Winery, Tony Black of Black’s Smuggler Winery and Michele and Jesse Padberg of Vivác Winery answered an interest seeking letter sent to wineries across the state from the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation.

The new facility will provide space for private events such as private wine tasting seminars, wine tasting parties and dinners, anniversary and birthday celebrations, bridal luncheons, special brunches, lectures and before and after date nights.

The owners hope to open the wine room in June and hold a community-wide grand opening event in mid-July. The wine room will hold something less than 100 people and initially will be open noon to 8 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. The public will dictate the hours as time goes on.
