A Tour Guide's Sonoma Wine Country
Our Newest Book: Wine Tasting with the Stars
Wine and Astrology are two enjoyable and illuminating topics that have been linked since when wine was the only health drink and electric lights didn’t hide the night sky. Astrology is a tool for describing how nature and society is organized and it can help us easily understand the personality of the most popular wine grapes. Can you think of a more Solar wine than golden Chardonnay, whose name means, ‘The Gates of God’? How about a more Saturnian wine than Cabernet Sauvignon, with its powerful structure and need for aging?
Our seminar relates the popular wine varieties to the traditional astrological meaning of the major planets. As participants taste their way through the wines, and their planets, they will learn something about both. These connections explains why certain people prefer particular wines and even regions, because the planets in own chart align with those of the grape.
