DaVinci Wine has announced the last call for applications for its second-annual Storyteller Experience. Creative individuals are encouraged to apply on the brand’s Facebook pagebefore May 4 for the chance to spend a week in Italy.

The program, is designed to give artists, photographers, chefs, writers and other creative types a behind-the-scenes look at the people and place behind the brand’s celebrated wines in the storybook Tuscan town of Vinci—birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci and home to DaVinci Wine’s thriving cooperative of over 200 growers.

Applications are accepted in three categories:

  • Language Arts such as a writer, journalist or poet;
  • Culinary Arts such as a chef, recipe developer or food stylist;
  • Visual or Performing Arts such as a photographer, artist, videographer, musician or performing storyteller.

 

Applicants will be judged in four areas: a personal essay, samples of work, social media influence and a summary of experience. DaVinci is looking for individuals who are not only talented in their chosen category, but also interested in wine and Italian culture and sharing their creativity and experience with others via social media.

In May, the brand will announce three chosen Storytellers, one for each category. The fourth and final spot, however, will go to a public vote on the DaVinci Facebook page among the next top four applicants.

DaVinci will cover the cost of air travel, hotel accommodations and meals while in Vinci for seven days; each DaVinci Storyteller, in turn, will express their experience using their creative talents. The resulting videos, recipes, stories, photography and art will be shared by the Storytellers as well as by the brand on the DaVinci website and Facebook page.
