DaVinci wines, sponsor of the 2011 Wine Bloggers Conference, is searching for writers, bloggers, culinary aficionados, artists and filmmakers to travel to Vinci, Italy — home to the historic Cantine Leonardo Da Vinci, where DaVinci wines are produced — to gather, bring to life, and share stories of the Tuscan town’s dynamic people and place.
Vinci is a small town in the heart of Tuscany made famous by its celebrated son, Leonardo da Vinci. But it’s the stories of today’s Tuscan wine country that DaVinci wines is interested in. In July, four selected “DaVinci Storytellers” will spend one week in Vinci and will have unparalleled access to rich history from multiple generations of wine grape growers, dynamic culinary experiences with local chefs, and insider access to the area’s robust art culture.
If you are chosen, DaVinci will send you on the experience and cover the cost of flights, accommodations, meals and activities while in Vinci; each DaVinci Storyteller, in turn, will express their experience in Tuscany using their creative talents. The resulting stories, art or other creations will be shared by the DaVinci Storytellers through their social media networks, the DaVinci website and Facebook page, and the media.
Now through May 31st applications are being accepted on the DaVinci Facebook page. To apply and view the official terms and conditions, please visit http://www.facebook.com/davinciwine. Since wine bloggers are already writing, telling stories, and using social media, we thought you would be prime candidates to apply!
