On our last full day in the U.S., I was invited to a wine tasting in the beautiful Napa-Sonoma country where we are staying with friends. I was able to see the newly harvested grapes starting their processing journey through crush pads, fermentation room and aging cellars. We were hosted by Margaret Duckhorn, co-founder of Duckhorn Vineyard, in a private tasting of a selection of beautiful wines: pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, sauvignon blanc….

It was a privilege to hear Margaret describe the various wines and the locales in which they were produced. In a lifetime devoted to the industry, she has created a world-class wine company, served as a community leader and philanthropist, and raised a family.

While I would not say I was a wine buff or even much of a wine drinker, I appreciate a virtuoso in any field, especially when they are as humble and down-to-earth as Margaret presents herself.

Over the years I’ve discovered that there are accomplished yogis in every field, and I raise a glass to all of them!
