Forest Bathing with Red Car Wine
Shinrin-yoku is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing.” It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.
Jenny Harrow, Certified Forest Therapy Guide and Sonoma County wine professional, will guide guests in a meditative practice, opening up senses to the forest and vineyard that surrounds them. From there, the group will meander up a small hilltop and taste local cheeses, fruit and Red Car's single-vineyard Pinot Noir – the wine grown on that very vineyard. The experience will end at Red Car’s modern and boutique tasting room with a seated tasting of small-production, cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah.
With a winemaking philosophy that emphasizes sustainability, minimalist intervention and biodiversity – Red Car welcomes their guests to this rare wine country event, one that truly epitomizes their viticulture practices.
