April 06, 2017

In honor of our upcoming retreat to Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm in the North Valley of Albuquerque New Mexico in May 2017, we wanted to share some insight and highlight why we love this part of the country oh so much. 
 

Albuquerque

Eat  
Farm + Table:  Get the winter veggies and farm fries and you’ll be set.  North Valley spot overlooking the farm fields
 
La Quinta Restaurant at Los Poblanos:  No stop to Albuquerque would be complete without a farm to table dinner experience at Los Poblano’s famed restaurant.  Set in a historic hacienda La Quinta offers the very best of Rio Grande River Valley cuisine, incorporating the freshest ingredients from local farms and spotlighting seasonal produce whenever possible.  
 
 
Explore
Casa Rondena:  Vineyard with Spanish influence inspired by the Winemaker’s travels to the South of Spain.  Relax in the lovely spanish stone buildings and tasting room or amongst the vines of Cabernet and Tempranillo.  Try the  Meritage blend the 2010 year was a classic.
 
Local Grower’s Market:  Saturday mornings in downtown Albuquerque features local growers and purveyors many of which are located in the Rio Grande River Valley the backdrop for our Spring Retreat at Los Poblanos.
