Field-to-fork Session 2
Exploring Southwest Wines
As the oldest wine-producing region in the United States, New Mexico has a rich, complex history of viniculture to explore. Join our talented Director of Wine and Spirits and Certified Sommelier, Dylan Storment, for a deep dive into the world of New Mexican and Southwestern wine. This experience will bring Bar Campo's award-winning menu to life and introduce you to local winemakers that have an unparalleled passion and expertise in producing fine high-desert wines.
Field-to-fork Session 3
Rio Grande Valley Cuisine Demo
Our acclaimed Rio Grande Valley Cuisine is rooted in organic ingredients harvested from our fields and sourced from local farmers and herdsmen. Crafted with care and expertise by Executive Chef Jonathan Perno, a 2020 James Beard Award finalist, our cuisine reflects the values at the heart of Los Poblanos: excellence, community and authenticity. Our outstanding culinary team, led by Chef Perno, will guide an interactive demo that provides a behind-the-scenes look at how seasonal Campo dishes are brought from concept to reality. The session will be centered around a traditional New Mexican matanza, where a locally-raised pig and seasonal vegetables will be slow roasted in a deep outdoor pit until perfectly succulent.
Field-to-Fork Session 4
Herb Foraging Walk
Explore the rich palate of culinary herbs growing around the Los Poblanos property. This guided morning walk will engage the five senses as we seek out plants ranging from traditional native teas to uncommon varieties of familiar herbs that enliven the dishes prepared in the Campo kitchens.
Outdoor Yoga Class
Breathe deep, stretch and find balance with an outdoor yoga class led by local mobile studio, YogaZo, that's designed to make you feel welcome and accepted, no matter how little or long you've practiced. Simply bring an open mind and wear clothes you feel good moving in. Freshly sanitized mats will be provided.
Harvest Celebration Matanza Feast
Enjoy a final-night feast that ties together the agricultural and culinary experiences of the Autumn Harvest Retreat. Executive Chef Perno will build a six-course matanza inspired tasting menu that will be paired with a wine or spirit selected by our Sommelier, Dylan Storment, to compliment the flavor profiles and cooking techniques used by Chef Perno's team. This magnificent celebration of the harvest will complete a series of unforgettable experiences on the farm.
