THIS RETREAT'S SPECIAL GUEST:
OLGA DEE (WINE EDUCATOR)
"VEGAN FOOD & WINE PAIRING EXPERIENCE"
Join us this retreat for a cosy evening enjoying a special experience, matching wines with food, learning about vegan wines in a relaxed setting in front of a crackling wood fire.
Gain skills and learn how to pair a gourmet grazing board with wine varieties to turn every meal into a memorable experience.
Why this retreat is for you
Food connects you to your heart. You adore vegan food. You resonate with the quote 'I'd rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size 0'! You’re keen to add more vegan recipes to your repertoire, become a pasta master, whip up impressive sweets and discover how to perfectly pair food with wine. You're all about turning meals into an experience.
PASTA & WINE MASTERCLASSES
Cooking is one of your love languages. Even if you're not perfect at it. There’s something special when you get into the kitchen and create something from scratch. Making pasta is your idea of joy and you'd love to learn how to roll pasta like a nonna! You enjoy a drop of wine and would love learn to more about wine tasting and pairing - so the next time you buy a bottle of wine, you can share your newfound knowledge with friends and family. And show off your new pasta making skills at the same time.
You feel that it’s high time you took a weekend away in the country. You need to escape the expectations of your busy life and do something just for you. Because you want to be inspired, to have your heart filled to the brim.
Whether you're shaping your own tortellini pasta, sipping on freshly brewed tea, sitting in front of a crackling fire, intentionally tasting wine or breathing in the country air - you want to experience heartfelt moments. A little mindfulness meditation and open-hearted sharing with likeminded women is just what you need to slow you down and reconnect to that peaceful, joyful part of you.
You love connecting with others, sharing ideas and experiences. You're positive-minded and caring. You also connect to your own heart. A smaller group allows you to really get to know others and also gives you that extra instruction and care, especially with the masterclasses.
