Yesterday, our class took a trip to a local winery. We learned about the process of growing grapes organically and about the different varieties of grapes that can be found in Tuscany. Then we toured the inside of the winery, learning about the actual process of fermentation and aging. At the end, we got to sample three different varieties of the vineyard’s wine using our newly-learned wine-tasting skills. I’m so glad that I was able to experience such an important part of Italian culture before I head home! I’m sad to be leaving such a beautiful place with such a rich history and culture, but I’m going to make an effort to soak up as much as I can during these last two weeks!
Here are some pictures (silly + serious) that we took on the winery tour!
Hello! My name is Emilee Sullivan. I am a fourth-year student at the University of Oklahoma planning to graduate with a Spanish degree this spring before continuing my education in pursuit of a Master’s degree in Library and Information Studies. My plans were a little shaken up last fall when left nursing school and decided to change my major a week before my senior year began, but I’ve finally found what I love and it is the most wonderful adventure.
