WineSpirit connects wine and spirituality in the details of each day:

Shades of Fall by Scott Schrader of Wine Valley Photography
  • Celebrating wine as catalyst for opening what/who is inside
  • Taking time to nurture and build relationships
  • Cherishing balance in all facets of life
  • Honoring wine's partnership connecting di-vine and people
  • Bringing people of all walks of life together to share stories and explore life meaning over a glass of wine

As unique as is each vintage and label of wine, so is each of us unique in our own growing, developing, and ripening process. As each wine has its own particular growing conditions and story to tell, so does each of us.

WineSpirit is for everyone who enjoys wine, good conversation, and times for reflection: it's for vintners, growers, investors, owners, consumers, students, and teachers of all "varietals" through the spirit of wine, gleaning through different sacred paths and teachings ... promoting balance and well-being in all facets of life.

Teachers and facilitators celebrate the spiritual dimension found in the details of daily activity. Members and supporters of WineSpirit donate their talents, services and wisdom.

Through the website, virtual community enables sharing and learning with people and resources throughout the world.
