Sheep Serenity! Shafer Winery Offers Sheep-Grazing Vineyard Video To Calm Your Covid-19 Nerves!!

Behold The Serenity Of Sheep Grazing!

Amid the anxiety of the Covid-19 pandemic, here is some welcome, soothing relief from the day-to-day news: sheep!

Welcome To Shafer Vineyards!

Shafer Vineyards in Napa Valley is one of the great wineries of the regions, with world class wines and a down-to-earth approach to their work that is refreshing. And now, they have sheep!

As they note on their website:

Each year a large herd of sheep visits Shafer Vineyards during springtime here in Napa Valley. They come to naturally mow the abundant cover crop that grows in our vine rows, which is an important part of our approach to sustainable farming. Everyone at the winery loves it when the sheep arrive. There’s something about their presence that is calming, cheering, and peaceful.

The winery adds:

During the upheaval and uncertainty in the world right now, we wanted to share the pastoral beauty of this with you.

These images of beautiful sheep grazing in our vineyards are set to the music of songbirds, the vineyard breeze, occasionally the geese on our pond, and of course the sheep themselves. Think of it as our version of one of those logs-burning-in-a-fireplace videos that can play in the background of your day at home.

We’ve repeated one hour of footage to give you a total of six hours of wine country tranquility. This was shot during March 2020 here on our property by Napa Films. The sheep come to us from the folks at Woolly Weeders.

Check out the calming video and be prepared to feel more relaxed!

Thank you Shafer for this serene break from the news of the day…I can’t wait for Napa Valley to open up again fully, so wine lovers can head there and take in more beauty like this:

And nothing beats an early morning balloon ride over the vineyards – in fact, a morning balloon sighting is guaranteed there:

Here’s a look at some of the incredible beauty of an early morning balloon sighting in Napa Valley:

Also, this worldwide pandemic has resulted in millions of us sheltering at home, and opening up our world to other creatures:

  4. I made sure not to count the sheep, just in case that sent me to sleep too early!
    But that has made me fancy some wine, and I haven’t got any! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
