Escape for the day and awaken the senses as we explore the juicy delights of yoga and wine at Bluestone Vineyards in Wiltshire. Connect with nature and wildlife as we journey through a mindful tour of the vineyards, tasting four of the finest wines with an accompanying tasting platter of local cheese and charcuterie whilst embracing the breathtaking views across rolling hillsides and vines. Take a day off from work, escape to the countryside, indulge yourself with a new experience.
Start your day by awakening your senses with Qi Gong amongst the Grapes! Qi Gong is a moving meditation, coordinating slow flowing movement & deep rhythmic breathing to create a sense of harmony with the natural world. Followed by a Smoothie & Energy ball to fuel your energy.
Savour 2 yoga practices throughout the day. A morning Vinyasa Yoga Class tapping into the key senses to prepare us for the tastings and an afternoon Rest and Relaxation Class to create a sense of serene bliss and peaceful ease before you drift home. Yoga classes held inside an old stone farm building.
Take a guided tour of the vineyard with Head Winemaker Nat. Learn all about growing wine grapes in our challenging UK climate and what it takes to produce high-quality fruit to make world-class sparkling wines with great age-ability. Explore how this vineyard works to support the wildlife and meet the resident chickens, peacocks, alpacas and more!
You will then enjoy a tasting platter of local cheese and charcuterie with other nibbles accompanied by a tutored tasting of 4 wines. 3 still wines from local Wiltshire producers, a red, a white and a rose and our limited edition sparkling classic Cuvee. A vegan/vegetarian platter is also available.
Come play for the day, book it as days holiday and do something different! We will spend the day reconnecting with nature and moving and breathing with Qi Qong, Yoga and Meditation as well as exploring the vineyard planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape varieties.
We'll be grazing throughout the day, much like the resident farm animals.
