When a Yoga and Wine Adventure from Living Social popped up in my email a few weeks ago, I knew there was no doubt I was going to partake!
And I had a few friends who all the same idea. Yoga on a vineyard? Don’t mind if we do!
So we arrived at Wood River Cellars Winery yesterday morning excited for the events to unfold.
We picked our spot in the nice shade, ready to get our yoga on!
We enjoyed the beautiful scenery as we were waiting for the start of our Yoga & Wine adventure.
Then it was time to get serious!
The yoga was a lot more stretching than anything else. The stretching felt great, but wasn’t as great of a yoga workout as I was hoping for.
I loved the idea of doing yoga outside, but I always struggle with the unevenness of the ground. It was a little tougher to get the moves just right.
But us ladies had fun anyways!
Then it was wine time! Oh yeah!
We walked into the wine tasting area to find each of had a wine placement explaining the different wines we would try, a lovely wine opener, and a Wood River Cellars wine glass (filled with our first tasting) for us to take home.
After our hot yoga session, they encouraged us to take advantage of some appetizers. MMMmmm!
A perfect plate of eats with a refreshing glass of Sweet Pink.
I’m actually a big fan of sweet wines, but this one just wasn’t doing it for me yesterday.
Then it was on the to the Chardonnay. I liked this one better than the Sweet Pink, but still it wasn’t my favorite.
And then it was Merlot time. I’m not usually a Merlot fan, and I was pleasantly surprised that I was digging this one.
Before each wine was served, the Winemaker would give a little explanation of the grapes and how it was made. It was fun to learn about the wines as we tried them.
Then it was time to tour the winery and learn more about the wine making process!
Oh, and they were serving wine straight from the barrel. This one had a kick of black pepper. It was so interesting.
We obviously took advantage of all the tasting opportunities.
After our tour of the winery, we were greeted with on last and final tasting. The Wood River Cellars Port.
I think Victoria liked it! I know a Port (which is super super sweet) is one of my favs, but definitely has a time and a place.
I would probably only drink this one with dessert and on special occasions.
We finished our lovely day off, by stepping inside to the actual tasting room. The ladies bought a few souvenirs from the day.
Me on the other hand, have quite the wine collection going on after all the wedding festivities. So I did not purchase any this time, but I frequent this winery quite often. I know I will be back!
All and all it was a super fun day! I truly loved the combination of a Yoga and Wine adventure. And am now on the lookout for any other Living Social Adventures!
