6th Annual "BDR" Fundraiser Ride

  • Published in Blog

2019 markes the third consecutive year that Mt. Beautiful has sponsored Backcountry Discovery Routes which cludes participation in its annual spring fundraiser.

This year, the event was held in Anza Borrego in Southern California.  Mt. Beautiful's CEO Robert wasn't able to attend this year's event, but Marketing Manager Suzanna Mannion was able to make it and represent the brand (and have fun riding!) in his absence. Here's an event recap published on the "BDR" blog: 

"Over 50 ADV riders gathered at the Palm Canyon Hotel & RV Resort in Borrego Springs, CA at the end of March for the 6th Annual BDR Fundraiser Ride.  This event brings together BDR supporters, Ambassadors and industry professionals for a weekend of BDR-style riding, presentations and important discussions about the work and plans of the BDR organization.

The location of the event changes every year, but the fun and camaraderie among the attendees remains the same. This confluence of energy, common interests and BDR focus translates into ideas and action plans that guide the organization.

Exceptional riding in the desert and mountain terrain during the day, and afternoon soaks in the pool, culminated in serious discussions and serious fundraising (plus some great laughs) over dinner in the evenings."

Two new reviews by Christina Pickard!

2018 Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc

90 Points

Medium-gold in color, this North Canterbury Sauvignon leads with a heady nose of guava, lychee, and pineapple, with soft aromas of grass and tomato leaf. There's a nice play on the palate between texture and prickly acidity, with plenty of tropical fruit and a long finish. It makes for an apt pairing with summery cuisine.

CH17 release

2017 Mt. Beautiful Chardonnay

91 Points – Editor’s Choice

Somewhere between honey and lemon in color, this Chardonnay shows off much of what is so good about the North Canterbury region. The nose is sunny and bright with tropical and stone fruit backed by nutty, toasty and floral aromas. The medium-bodied palate is focused with chalky textured but slippery fruit weight. Lifted acidity and bright fruit add tingly tangy character. Drink over the next few years on its own or with food.
