Yoga in the Vineyard

This year, the inspirational winemaker-cum-yoga instructor Nicole Abiouness leads a series of uplifting yoga sessions set amidst the vines at picturesque Kristine Ashe Vineyards. After the practice, guests will be treated to a tasting of her refreshing rosé of Pinot Noir, alongside Kristine Ashe's Provençal style rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon – a perfect start to an idyllic Napa day! Yogis will also be treated to nutritious and light bites, prepared by Mark's the Spot Fine Food to complement the wines. 

After graduating from college in Virginia, Nicole Abiouness relocated to London for an internship with a caterer and fine wine merchant. This formative experience ignited her passion for food and wine, leading her to enroll at the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, CA. While cutting her teeth in the cellar at Swanson Vineyards after completing her studies, she fell in love with the winemaking process and began her journey of discovery, which included working harvests in Australia and France. Nicole returned to California where she began to craft her own wine, launching Abiouness Wines, a name that pays homage to her Lebanese father. She is also a certified Anusara instructor.
