Brunello Expert | Exclusive Tastings | Wine & Yoga Retreats
Vino Vistas was founded in 2014 in Montalcino, Tuscany home of the prestigious red wine Brunello. As holder of the WSET Diploma, I offered bespoke Brunello wine tours and exclusive tasting. Escaping the off season winters I worked in Chile and later volunteered in Andalusia at the famous Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre.
In 2019 I decided to exchange the rolling hills of Tuscany for the Andalusian albariza soils and the Sierra Grazalema. My passion for wine persists and I enjoyed delving into the world of Sherry, while deepening my Yoga practice. Pairing wine and yoga seemed the logical consequence, and so the Wine and Yoga Retreat Vino & Vinyasa was born.
Alas, since then times have changed and travel and group gatherings are no longer possible as before. With a heavy heart I left the south of Spain and moved to my home country Germany in the fall of 2020. Since then I have put down some tender roots in Germany's sunniest wine region: Baden. Whenever possible, I have happily explored the amazing whites and reds from this area.
On a more personal level I am dedicated to maintaining and sharing my happy and positive attitude in view of the current challenging situation. Stay tuned for stories and insights about wine and life on my blog or instagram
