SECOND ANNUAL FRIENDS AND FELLOWS RIDE
The Little Nell and Blackberry Farm have partnered once again to bring you the Second Annual Friends and Fellows Ride. Kick off Food & Wine Classic Weekend with us in Aspen for a road bike ride to Ashcroft Valley followed by lunch at The Nell prepared by the executive chefs from both properties to raise awareness for the Sam Beall Fellows Program. Late Blackberry Farm Proprietor Sam Beall was a passionate champion of the culinary arts, lending his support to rising vintners, chefs, producers and hospitality professionals. In honor of Sam’s legacy, this scholarship fund sponsors young professionals in pursuit of stages in world-renowned restaurants. The Little Nell and Blackberry Farm, two Relais & Châteaux resorts, value fine wine, haute cuisine, dedicated hospitality and the sport of cycling.
