Wine & Words
a Creative Writing Excursion & Wine Tasting
At Mount Salem Vineyards
Sunday, February 10, 2019*
“I wondered whether he had been born with lyrical descriptive powers or whether he took a thesaurus to bed with him every night.”
– Peter Mayle, Toujours Provence
Wine as writing, wine as life. Spend a unique afternoon tasting wine and writing in the creative workshop where we'll compare the structure, joy and language of wine to the structure, joy and language of storytelling. Learn first from world-class winemaker Peter Leitner about the process of creating fine wines, from seedling to glass, and how to identify the integrity of a wine, its bouquet, its finish. Apply the lessons of that journey to your storytelling through a series of guided writing exercises led by award-winning editor and author Teresa Politano. Along with the wine, enjoy light refreshments (suitable vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike), all made on the premises with ingredients raised within a mile of the vineyard.
*Workshop "Snow-Date" February 24
