Owners of the new establishment at 145 Central Park Square were on hand to meet the public and provide samples of their wines from Anasazi Fields, Black’s Smuggler and Vivác wineries. Light snacks from local restaurants and caterers were served to complement the wines.
“We will begin hosting a new series starting Sunday, Feb. 22 called Poetry on the Hill and we will host these poetry readings from noon to 5 p.m., the third Sunday of each month thereafter,” Fish said. “We’ll have poetry readers from 1-3 p.m. and open mic from 4-5 p.m. and we’re kicking it off with myself and famous Placitas poet Larry Goodell.”
The owners of UnQuarked The Wine Room first announced their intention in the Los Alamos Daily Post last April to open their establishment. Their journey began when they answered an interest seeking letter sent to wineries across the state from the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation (LACDC).
