Wines and Wellness


Combining Wines with Active and Healthy lifestyle

Combining Wines with Active and Healthy lifestyle

Working outdoors for weeks on end during the harvest season in a vineyard, has been most rewarding for me, not only for gaining Viticultural knowledge and experience but it's also been a test of physical fitness and mental strength traversing across 265 acres of vast and hilly vines. An active promoter of exercise and balanced lifestyle and having been an endurance athlete myself, I aim to inspire a new generation of proud and savvy 'health freaks and wine geeks' . If you are in the profession of Sports and/or Wellness such as pilates trainer, fitness coach, physical therapist, nutrition consultant or wellness consultant and are looking at networking opportunities with your clients or suppliers, please click on Partnership opportunities.
