Take a Deep Breath

Whether you’re tasting a fine wine or settling into a moment of meditation, taking a deep breath enhances everything we do on the Farm. Read how mindful breathing improves your yoga flow and daily routine, learn about the process of letting your wines “breathe”, and explore the flavors of our favorite Spring dishes for April. The days are getting longer and the air is getting warmer as Spring takes over, and we invite you to slow down and take it all in with us in this month’s Friends of the Farm!
