The Spirituality of Wine Tasting

The Spirituality of Wine Tasting is a fundraising event for CFDM Arizona. Guided by CFDM co-founder Reverend Dr. Catherine C. Gregg, a Level 3 Master Sommelier, attendees will experience the sights, scents and flavors of six hand-picked wines, carefully paired with a delightful selection of hors de’oeuvres prepared by chef Kate Fimbres.

How We Taste Anything is How We Taste Everything!
The simple act of tasting what we eat and drink is a spiritual practice when done with mindfulness! Bringing our attention to the enjoyment of the Old World Wines that will be shared provides an opportunity to learn about the spirituality of place that these wines reveal. Tasting with intentionality invites us to develop our ability to be fully present in the moment, to enhance our awareness of the beauty and delight that surround us in our everyday lives, and to live more fully in a mindset of gratitude. In an engaging and enjoyable atmosphere, you will learn how to use all of your senses as we taste wines from France, Italy and Spain, and to discover and name the nuanced gift in each glass.
