As a boy my father would occasionally offer me a sip of wine as he had a fondness for the libation, which stemmed from his years in the restaurant and catering industry. He is easily one of my favorite people to talk wine with and I am grateful to him for sparking my interest in the world’s most fascinating beverage.

 

The most important characteristic a wine can express is the land from which it hails. After all, it is the sun,soil, and individual micro-climate of that region which makes it unique. Consequently, the greatest wines also reflect the history, family values, and blood sweat and tears of the generations who have poured their hearts into producing this precious beverage. The winemaker is not an artist or creationist, but rather a facilitator of the beautiful produce the earth has given, ensuring that it reaches its fullest potential.

As a native New Mexican, my passion for food and wine is derived from over ten years working in restaurants, wine sales, and a winery in Albuquerque. After three years in the Bay area, tasting daily, and receiving a profound appreciation for the great wines of the world, I cannot express enough my joy in returning home.

 

Upon my return to New Mexico, as I was enjoying time as a stay-at-home dad, I learned that Farm & Table was looking for a wine curator. The stars aligned and after an interview with owner Cherie Montoya and former wine director, Amy Haas, I was hired and instantly fell in love with this establishment. 

 

Farm & Table is situated on a property with a history dating back two hundred years. It served as a stagecoach stop alongel Camino Real, which was the original trade route between Mexico City and Santa Fe. Cherie’s father saved the property from development in the 1980s and the ambiance is like that of no other establishment in our city. We work with over 65 local farms and food purveyors, including Sol Harvest Farm, our on-site farm which is visible from the patio. Farm & Table’s dedication to local food and respect to those who make our community so wonderful, are just a few of the reasons that I am extremely proud to represent this establishment.

 

In addition to the locality of the cuisine, we are blessed with a thriving beer and growing wine industry in a state with a viticultural history that is arguably the oldest in the U.S. We offer libations from around the world as well as from local breweries like Marble and Bosque, as well as local wineries such as Gruet, Sheehan Family Winery, and Milagro. Pairing wine and beer with the culinary wizardry of our head chef Carrie Eagle is a dream come true. I beam with gratification to be part of this team as we showcase the finest produce from this enchanting state. I encourage you to come and enjoy the Farm & Table experience, as we will host numerous events in which neighborhood food and fermented beverage will be king!

 

Cheers!

Guinea Hens

If you have dined with us lately and have managed to walk through our adjacent farm, Sol Harvest Farm, you may have caught a glimpse or at least heard the chirps of our newest residents. We are the proud landlords of eleven new guinea hens, and we have to apologize now, because they will not be gracing our menu anytime soon. They are known to be quite tasty but they are here for other, more important reasons. As reported in an article in Modern Farmer, these small chicken-like birds, with origins in the central African plains, are used quite extensively by farmers as an alternative to harmful pesticides as they are great exterminators of row crop pests including ants, termites, cutworms, grubs and our arch enemy the grasshopper! In the month or so that they have been vigilantly patrolling our property we have already seen a marked decrease in pests, which is great news as we prepare for the fall growing season. We applaud the work and creativity of our resident farmer Ric Murphy for bringing in these new additions to the Farm & Table family. We are committed to bringing to you the freshest seasonal food that is grown and raised with the greatest of care and with the softest impact to our Mother Earth. We hope to see you soon and happy dining!

Theater on the Farm is Back!

unnamed 2

Theater on the Farm is back for its second year!

Join us for our annual theater festival on the farm deck the first three Thursdays in June!  This summer, Farm & Table will once again partner with Tricklock Company and Duke City Repertory Theatre to bring you innovative theater in a stunning setting.

June 2, 9 & 16 | 8:00 performance | $30

 

Tricklock Company presents:

Ingrid and Nurton

by Drew Morrison

Directed by Juli Hendren

Featuring Erin Phillips, Drew Morrison, and Hannah Kauffmann

Music by The Porter Draw

Ingrid's got it good. She's converted the old family home into a bakery, living alone in the old house, starting the fire for the oven out back in the early hours each morning. Her weekly public dinners are sold out weeks in advance, to high paying, hungry crowds. Her pies and breads have drawn the attention of several culinary publications, and though she hardly considers her living room a restaurant, she's earned her first review. The only problem is that the critic en route to pen the critique is well known for scathing, abusive condemnations of up-and-comers in the restaurant industry. He also happens to be her brother.

A story of family, food, and what happens when the critic comes home.

 

Duke City Repertory Theatre presents:

Que Kerastas, Kerastas

by Geogina Hernandez Escobar

From award-winning playwright and UNM alum Georgina Escobar, Que Kerastas, Kerastas examines the human desire for connection, understanding, and control. When Jenna returns to her mother’s apricot orchard in rural New Mexico after a not-so-unexpected death, she reunites with Leonard—a worldly neighbor and childhood friend who cared for Jenna’s mother long after she and her sisters left the farm. As Jenna reels with the onslaught of memories brought by her return and Leonard’s presence, the two estranged friends grapple with understanding love, life, and loss—and that perhaps our greatest comfort lies in accepting that whatever will be, will be.
