Meet the Winemakers: Drew Tuckwell, Printhie Wines

Is there anything more relaxing than sitting on the edge of a glittering lake, taking slow sips of an impeccable wine? The only thing that might compete is practicing yoga by that same lake, saluting the sun and taking mindful breaths of life-giving fresh air.
What if you could combine the two? Whether you call it ‘pose and pour’ or ‘stretch and sip’, yoga and wine might just be the ultimate combination for relaxation and blissful escapism – and spring is the perfect season to rejuvenate body, mind and spirit.
Leave the everyday world behind and recapture your Zen on the picturesque shores of Josef Chromy’s irresistible lake near beautiful Launceston, Tasmania.
“Yoga In the Vines is a great way to start your Josef Chromy Wines experience,” says Amy Russell, Wine Club and Marketing Manager, Josef Chromy. “It is a chance to settle into the vineyard landscape before you indulge in wines drawn from the same earth, matched with the freshest local produce.”
Under the guidance of a qualified instructor, glide your way through a personalised yoga session, surrounded by breathtaking vineyard views that seem to go on forever.
As your yoga class concludes, enjoy a glass of award-winning label Josef Chromy wine, feel every ounce of tension melt away, and a blissful feeling of wellbeing creep over you.
“Funnily enough, the vineyard views aren’t the star of our Yoga in the Vines experience. It turns out that guests find the frog calls and bird song around the vineyard lake to be the best accompaniment to a mindful yoga session,” says Amy.
After working up an appetite, enjoy a long, lazy two-course meal and perhaps another sneaky glass of wine or two. Added bonus? The mindfulness skills honed through yoga might just improve your wine-tasting techniques as you learn to zero in on subtle flavours with an open, quiet mind. Book your Yoga in the Vines session HERE.
