What you'll do

I’ll welcome you at The Panel, a friendly local wine lounge, where we will taste through 5-6 various varietals of wine from all over the world. We’ll dive into basic wine tasting principles and etiquette to prepare you for your excursions in wine country. We’ll pair the wines with small bites so you can learn how food impacts the smell, taste and flavor of wine. I want to demystify wine for you in a totally judgment free setting and give you the tools to feel comfortable in any wine tasting room.

Simultaneously we’ll explore the parallels between wine and wellness, and how wine can be a tool to greater mindfulness. You’ll discover the role wine played in our evolution as people, it’s history for medicinal purposes and what wine country offers beyond wine.

You’ll walk away feeling like an expert wine taster with more insight into experiencing it and life with more passion!

I love wine and I love feeling healthy! My professional career started as a college wellness instructor and sport performance coach. Then I discovered a love of wine and earned credentials from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust. There’s a lot to learn about wellness through the experience of wine. I’ve led wine and wellness seminars in other cities, but Sonoma is now home. My passion is inspiring others to find their passion!

Learned more about wine from the growing stage to the fermentation process and how infinite variables contribute to the final product. Plus how to pair wines with different food to enhance both. Got to try wines that we may not necessarily choose or have available in our home state which were all exceptional in their own way. I have limited knowledge of wine while my husband knows a bit more than me. We both enjoyed our experience with Meredith and would highly recommend this experience. Groups or couples with different level of wine knowledge would enjoy this unique tasting just as we did. Definitely a unique tailored tasting experience that was very much like a laid back, casual afternoon with a friend was the vibe that Wine & Wellness 101 with our host Meredith made this an even more memorable experience.

This experiance was absolutely wonderful. Meredith was so knowledgable about wine and I love the way she tied in the wellness and mindfulness components which are a couple of my favorite topics. My husband and I are newbies with wine and I truly felt informed, inspired, and empowered leaving this experience. I feel like I can start to really experience wine, as opposed to simply drinking it, with the tools and principles she taught. Also Meredith's free spirited, fun-loving personality made it feel like she was an old friend from the start!

Excellent experience I was so glad I took advantage of this opportunity, and doing it at the beginning of my wine tour through Napa was just the way to start out my trip. Loved it

My experience with Meredith was exceptional!! I was lucky enough to have Meredith all to myself and had the luxury of taking my time to learn about wine, pairing, food...we exchanged ideas and shared our experiences about life, love, etc. It's as if we were friends from another time and we didn't skip a beat. Meredith is deeply knowledgeable and brings her experience from a health perspective and not as a snobby wine connoisseur. I will definitely be back and bring my friends along.

We booked this on the first day of our Sonoma/Napa vacation and we are glad we did. We learned a lot about wine tasting and production, food pairing, and mindfulness that I think elevated the rest of the tastings we did over the course of our vacation. I really appreciated that Meredith reached out prior to our experience to learn more about our tastes and interests, and curated a selection of wines specifically for us. The food pairings was not just offered as a 'something nice to have' extra but was actually integral to talking about how wine and food interact. We left with a better understanding of wine, food, and wellness, as well as what the local region has to offer. Meredith followed up with more recommendations for us later in the day, which were perfect!

What a fun experience! Meredith was very friendly and knowledgeable and really able to cater the level and coverage of her talk to the guests’ interest and experience. My girlfriend and I are essentially wine novices but she was able to work with that and give a very informative, enjoyable tasting experience. The location and setting were tasteful and quiet, much more local than tourist. She also gave us great recommendations for other places to visit and were able to speak to our tastes. Overall a pleasure to be around!
