Celebrating Moments That Take Our Breath Away
Breathless Wines is a family affair, built by the love of three sisters, Sharon, Rebecca and Cynthia, and the passion for life their mother passed down to them.
“Breathless is about celebrating moments in life – big or small – that take our breath away,” says Sharon Cohn, Breathless sister one-of-three. “We are honoring our mom, Martha, who encouraged dreaming big – ‘never take a breath for granted, and live life to the fullest’ was her mantra.” Even when suffering from Alpha-1, Martha led the charge as a teacher dedicated to helping her community. In that vein, Breathless donates wine and funds to Alpha-1, and opens their tasting room, and their hearts, to more than a dozen non-profits annually.
With a vintage 1920s feel and a tasting room built from recycled shipping containers (the first of its kind in the area), Breathless is the perfect blend of Art Deco and Industrial Chic – ideally situated in the West Healdsburg Warehouse district, just a short walk from the Healdsburg Square.
Visitors can expect extraordinarily unique and fun events in the Gatsby style Breathless has become known for. Breathless also hosts “Breakfast at Breathless” one Sunday each month, April through October, featuring authentic French crepes paired with sparkling wines. During the day guests can enjoy the gardens, have a leisurely picnic, and take lessons in beheading a bottle of sparkling with an authentic Italian saber (a dull-bladed sword that pops the bubbly open in a centuries-old style).
Educational tours are offered by appointment, showing visitors the art and science behind the Méthode Champenoise winemaking process, with which all Breathless sparkling wines are expertly crafted.
Breathless founders and sisters Sharon Cohn, Rebecca Faust and Cynthia Faust along with honorary sister, winemaker Penny, invite you to “cross the railroad tracks” and venture just a few blocks from the Healdsburg Square and enjoy a few “Breathless Moments.”
Breakfast at Breathless
The last Sunday of every month, April through October Breathless hosts “Breakfast at Breathless” a casual breakfast in their outdoor garden featuring delicious authentic sweet or savory crepes from Brittany Crepes paired with lovely glasses of bubbly. It is a fun and relaxed event and a great way to kick off a Healdsburg Sunday morning. Upcoming 2019 dates are September 29 and October 27. Tickets are available online.
