Los Alamos Historical Society Presents ‘New Mexico Wine: Past to Present’

Jim Hammond, ‘The Southwestern Wine Guy.’


Much has changed over the nearly 400 years that wine has been made in New Mexico. Jim Hammond will discuss that history and the renaissance that began in the 1980s. Due to Veterans Day, Hammond’s wine lecture is on Election Day, Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Fuller Lodge.

Hammond is the “Southwestern Wine Guy,” a name he acquired when he was the wine columnist for the Albuquerque Journal. Hammond is an author, blogger, columnist, storyteller, screenwriter and teacher. 

Prior to his life of wine, he spent 30 years developing and teaching courses on information technology in Silicon Valley. These days, Hammond writes a monthly “Artful Pairings” column for ABQArts Magazine, contributes to Examinar.com and New Mexico Magazine, gives lectures on wine and wine-food pairings, and hosts radio shows on wine. 

His genres are suspense, science fiction and, of course, wine. Hammond has released the 2nd edition of “Wines of Enchantment: A Guide to Finding and Enjoying the Wines of New Mexico.” He is an avid bicyclist and lives in Corrales with his wife, Barbara, an author.
