The Polar Vortex has subsided, but despite warmer temperatures, it’s still the dead of winter.  This week, we take you through dormant grapevines in a California vineyard and consider the benefits of taking a mindful break from alcohol at the start of the year. Then, we expose the cold dangers facing delivery workers braving brutal weather to bring hot meals to New Yorkers. Finally, we marvel at an unlikely luxury product and winter's most anticipated guest: ice.
