SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) YOGA on the Verde River and our private beach.
A wonderful combination of practicing yoga positions while on a paddleboard, floating on water. This experience is accessible to you even if you are new to yoga, or have never before been on a paddleboard. The class begins slow and low, and as you are guided through the postures, you will get more and more comfortable on the board. Although you never have to stand up if you choose not to, most participants are ready and eager to stand once we get to that section of the sequence. Modifications are given for different skill levels and you are free to listen to your own body as we advance through the class, taking breaks and varying poses whenever you choose. Sessions every day of the week from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. We supply the SUP or you can bring yours. MUST have a reservation, classes will fill up or can be cancelled if not filled. CALL US FIRST. $75 per person includes a $20 credit in the tasting room after your session. Benefits include increasing core strength, focusing your mind and relaxing in nature at the beautiful confluence of the Oak Creek and Verde River.

Extraordinary care is taken to assure that a wine’s aroma, flavor, and texture express a sense of place. This care is manifest in our winery’s viticultural best practices.
From the beginning, we’ve believed that choices made in the vineyard would have a profound influence not only on the quality of the wine, but on the health of the environment and the welfare of generations to come. Using a number of tools and best practices, our goal is to ensure that the vineyard environment is in harmony with the
natural environment. By embracing, rather than competing with Mother Nature, we seek to create a healthy eco-system, one that includes vibrant vineyards destined to produce high quality grapes and outstanding wines for years to come.
We utilize a number of integrated pest management (IPM) techniques to minimize damage from pests that are harmful to grapevines. Using cover crops specifically designed to attract certain insects, we create an environment in which “beneficial bugs”– bugs that feed on harmful bugs as well as funguses – can thrive. We have released lady bugs and praying mantis in our vineyards on multiple occasions.
Farming in a sustainable manner requires commitment and individual attention to each grapevine. This cultivation naturally minimizes undesirable molds and fungus. Ensuring that our farming practices don’t interfere with the surrounding habitat and watershed is crucial to the long term health of our vineyards. Several years ago, we
partnered with local organizations to maintain the health of the Verde River. By removing non-native plants and replanting with native species, we were able to reduce erosion, restore water flow and create a thriving environment for raptors, hawks, owls and other wildlife. And because healthy ecosystems radiate outwards, there is a direct correlation between the vibrancy of our watershed and the vitality of our vineyards.
