LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State University this weekend is hosting a grand opening for its new wine academy.

The new wine laboratory at its hospitality school is named after Bobby Lee Lawrence, known throughout the area as the "Southwest Wine Guy."

Lawrence passed away in 2010. His widow, Marion, established the Bobby Lee Lawrence wine academy with a $250,000 gift to the university.

Lawrence trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and the Culinary Institute of America. He taught about wine at area festivals and had a wine blog.
