What is Mindful Wine Tasting? Why does yoga help us to taste mindfully?

Wine tasting is about using your senses. Taking time to appreciate a wine – to fully engage with a wine is a form of respect: respect for the work that went into it; for the nature and sunlight that created it; and for yourself.

You could call it ‘mindful’ wine drinking. It is a way to learn more about wine and what you like so you can get more enjoyment from it. What is important with mindful wine tasting is to take a few moments to concentrate your senses, let go of your other thoughts and be totally focused on the wine.

Its almost like getting into meditation. This is why yoga can help to prepare for mindful wine tasting. Yoga prepares the mind for meditation and this is exactly what we need to be prepared for mindful wine-tasting.

 

Here is a selection of the potential wines we will taste (this could be slightly different depending on availability)

Feely Sincerité, a zesty pure sauvignon blanc grown on limestone with fresh citrus flavours and minerality
Feely Générosité, a dry barrel aged sémillon with notes of vanilla, apple pie and apricot compote

Feely Sensualite, a dry rosé made from luscious merlot grapes picked just right for strawberry flavoured freshness

Feely Résonance, a pure merlot aged in stainless steel with a touch of smoke and minerality from flint and limestone 
Feely Grâce, a merlot cabernet sauvignon blend 100% barrel aged
