It’s not exactly a bath, but the effect may be felt all over the body. This time of year – mid-September through mid-October – the aroma in America’s Grape Country is powerful and when you walk in the vineyard it is true immersion. Morning and evening can be the times when the fragrance is most intense, but if you are just driving through the Lake Erie Grape Region you can experience the effect. Roll down your windows and take a deep breath in .. aaaaahhh .. the fragrance washes over you and the effect is almost intoxicating .. scent is a powerful receptor and keeper of memories …you may choose to pursue another level (moderation is recommended!) of intoxication by seeking the fermented results … but a simple inhalation may produce a satisfying result.
Ready for a vineyard bath? Let’s take a stroll through the Concord grapes at Trolley Line Vineyards.
Start your Saturday morning off right with a gentle, easy flow yoga class led by local yoga instructor Deb Phillips paired with a cold glass of your favorite Five & 20 beer (or Mazza Wine) out in our picturesque courtyard. No experience required, just a willingness to explore. Please bring your own mat and props.
Cost includes a free (post-class) tasting and one pint of your choice of beer on tap (or glass of wine).
Two more opportunities to join the fun: August 19 and September 9. pre-registration requested for this event – please purchase tickets via Eventbrite link at http://fiveand20.com
Autumn is in the air and she suggests a change … a change of color, of temperature, of attitude? Subtle at first, but the change will become more obvious as the season progresses. I feel these stirrings and am ready and willing to shed the seasons of the past.
Some may embrace the change in anticipation of snuggling in for a winter’s rest, but I have rested enough and much work awaits. The work I am embracing is inside, with fires to stoke, passion to reignite. In thirty days I shall be 60 years old. Just another birthday … yes … and cause to celebrate.
