Montalcinos wineshop in New Mexico, which has been serving cider and wine to the local residents for decades, is set to open a new location on the shores of Lake Mead.
A new wine and cider restaurant called Montalcos in Lake Mead, which opened last week, will serve cider, watermelon and other fruits, along with other beverages.
The eatery will be located at the former Albertson’s Supermarket on the Montalco River just west of Lake Mesquite.
The owners say the location will serve as a destination for locals who want to enjoy wine, cider and other fresh local produce while taking in the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe.
Montalcins wine and craft cider, which includes watermelon, apple and grapefruit, will be served in the new restaurant, said company owner Aaron Thorpe.
The business will serve two kinds of beverages: a wine and a cider.
The wine will be a blend of local grape and local watermelon.
It will be available for $4.99 per bottle.
The cider will be made with local and seasonal fruit juices and will be $6.99.
The business is being named after the late Aaron Thorp, a local business owner and former employee of the company.
Thorp and his family had a winery in New Jersey, and he was also a well-known wine importer in California.
Thorpe said the business is an attempt to bring his family’s experience in winemaking to Lake Mead and provide a place where locals can enjoy some of their favorite local produce.
The new location will be open from 6 p.m. to 9 p.b.m., and the tasting room will be in the basement.
The restaurant will also offer a variety of food items, including fish tacos and salads, Thorpe said.
Thorpes wife, Joanna, is the executive chef at the new business.
She is a former employee at Montalcios, and she and Thorpe both have degrees in hospitality.
