In an industry of frequent indulging, tasting, and sharing of delicious wines, being mindful of what we’re tasting can become as fatigued as the palate. When it comes to Champagne, a glass can signal both excitement and anticipation. When sipping on a celebrated glass of bubbly, taking a moment to get in touch with what’s inside the glass is often overlooked.
Through mindfulness-driven tasting—or Medi-Tasting™—Champagne Henriot is lighting the way we get in touch with ourselves through practices of mindfulness and engaged curiosity. It is about bringing full awareness to the experience of tasting wine.
During SommCon San Diego, Natalie Bell, mindful expert and founder of Mindful Wellness, will guide a Medi-Tasting™ experience including practices of awareness that elevate the art of tasting. Once the senses are optimized for deeper tasting through brief meditation practice, Charles Curtis, renowned Master of Wine, will go beyond appreciating our most luminous cuvées, guiding the audience to connect the aromas and notes of each wine to their own inner light.
There are two ways to approach wine: enjoyable tasting and analytical sipping. Medi-Tasting’s true sensorial experience combines both approaches into an intentional tasting experience resulting in a stress-free mind.
