Napa, CA—May 27, 2015— The Perfect Purée of Napa Valley continues its commitment to promoting health and wellness in the spirits industry with a complimentary morning smoothie bar and supporting the Mind, Body & Spirits seminar series at Tales of the Cocktail® 2015. The Perfect Purée Rise & Shine morning smoothie bar station located in the Hotel Monteleone lobby will offer three fruit-filled and antioxidant-rich smoothie recipes created by Natalie Bovis, the Liquid Muse. The Mind, Body & Spirits seminar series will offer tips and techniques on how bartenders and other spirits professionals can bring balance and health to their demanding careers. These complimentary seminars will be offered Thursday through Saturday from 9 am till 10:30 am on a first come, first serve basis.

“The Perfect Purée of Napa Valley is excited to participate once again with a balanced approach for Tales of the Cocktail,” said Michele Lex, Director of Sales and Marketing at The Perfect Purée of Napa Valley. “We hope to provide a refreshing start each day with our Rise & Shine smoothie bar and with our continued support of the 'Mind, Body & Spirit' series. As hospitality professionals who influence guest experiences, we hope that all Tales attendees achieve a positive one for themselves.”

These programs for 2015 are part of The Perfect Purée of Napa Valley’s continued support of the spirits industry and Tales of the Cocktail®. In 2012, The Perfect Purée of Napa Valley began the trend at the annual spirit industry event by introducing a non-alcoholic bar. Their efforts continued in 2014, when the company partnered with a group of well-known industry leaders, including Patricia Richards, Natalie Bovis and Dushan Zaric, to launch a morning wellness program that included morning yoga by industry veteran Kitty Amann.
