Fresh off the heels of the Bâtonnage Forum, when so many of us from all parts of the industry came together, we thought it would be interesting this week to offer an international perspective on “building up the tribe.” <<click image to read more >>
Last Saturday I had the tremendous honor to offer closing comments at the first-ever Bâtonnage Forum, the sold-out, gritty, stir-the-lees conference in Napa that was convened by the indomitable Stevie Stacionis and her team.. <<click image to read more>>
Decades of medical research, books, journals, and papers exist on the benefits of spending time in nature, the positive impacts on stress levels, and the our overall physical and mental wellbeing. <<click image to read more>>
Putting a new idea out there — such as this 30-day practice for the wine industry on breathwork and meditation — is a lot like turning on a lightbulb. Once it’s lit, we’re more able to see what we couldn’t see before. << click on image to read more >>

At Cathy’s kind invitation, earlier this week I spoke to a group of MBA students at Bologna University on the importance of narrative in wine storytelling.

"If you can change your breath, you can change your life."
That's one of the most essential learnings I've taken to heart from my teacher, at home in Atlanta, and it was on my mind as I prepared my notes for our WOTVS session. Breathwork was the focus of Beck's side of the presentation, and it's the foundation of... well, everything.
We're glad you're here.
Whether you joined us in person at this year's WOTVS symposium -- one week ago -- or you've found us in another way, thank you for being here.
Let's keep practicing, together.
Every day for the next 30 days we'll send you a note, highlighting a breathwork practice or meditation focus or another wellness tip to deepen our mindfulness practice as we navigate this shared and challenging world of wine.
We hope it helps. Please also let us know what you think would be useful. We're listening.
Rebecca and Cathy
