Becoming a wine sommelier takes years of study, but the most important skill for savoring with all five senses is the ability to be completely in the moment. We can only identify the character and nuances of a wine, its grape varieties and terroir, when no conflicting thoughts disturb the tasting session. Mindfulness can thus be the facilitator to get detached of past events and future to-do's, and cultivating an open, curious mind (mushin) for new experiences.

During the Mindful Tasting Session participants learn skills to be fully present, taking in the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and sensations happening in the here and now. 


The session includes:

4 wines (bubbles, white, red, sweet wines)

4 food pairings


Fee: € 40


Exact dates for 2018 will follow soon
