Project 2: Grape variety creative project
Let’s make wine more fun while learning!
This project has two parts.
- Deep dive, with the attached handout, into one grape variety. It can be one we’re covering during the course (suggested), or one you pick from outside of our Intro to Wine box (suggestions: Syrah, Zinfandel, Grenache, Sangiovese, or Tempranillo). This deep dive is self-directed research. The answers to the questions are easy to find, but the important part is you do the work rather being simply given the info.
- You create a creative expression about that grape variety. This can be straightforward (a short five paragraph essay), or as creative as a painting or a poem. The goal is to think differently and push yourself into something you may not normally do. Get out those crayons! Have some fun with this!
What does this achieve? I think you’ll be surprised at how much you’re going to learn, and how connected you’ll now be to that grape variety.
First and foremost, this is for YOU. But if you wish to share with the group feel free to post on our Padlet board.
