You know how one always checks the local weather of the destination in which they are about to be traveling? There had been snow in Colorado Springs a few days before we arrived for the Vistage retreat at the Broadmoor. I had packed a couple of jackets to wear over my spring outfits, which was a good thing. The nights were cool and windy, but the days were warm and beautiful.
Some of our friends in this organization had arrived before us and had a jump on relaxing and enjoying this fabulous resort near Cheyenne Mountain. One special couple, Beth and Eric, surprised us by leaving a gift at the front desk.
Here's what they gave us! I had just had this in a restaurant this past week and loved it! Needless to say, I was very excited and grateful.
Au Bon Climat is known to be rich and creamy and before you know it, the bottle will be drained. I prefer a light and crisp Chardonnay, but I loved this wine. It sells for somewhere in the low $20s, depending on where you purchase it.
This is the sweet note attached to the wine. We did have loads of fun with them and the entire group. I have other wines and stories from this retreat to share next time.
