In the running to be a storyteller…

You guys.

I’ve been waiting WEEKS to spill this news!

Have you followed the DaVinci Storytellers over the past three years? I have loved hearing about their travels and watching the videos and reading posts about everything they learned with DaVinci wine.

DaVinci Storyteller

I actually entered last year, but didn’t make it into the finals (bummer). BUT THIS YEAR I DID. And I’m still freaking out about it.

And now I need your help!

They’ve chosen 12 finalists, and now it’s up to all of you to vote!

People from all across the country applied for the chance to join DaVinci in Tuscany this fall. The Storyteller applicants included artists, photographers, writers, chefs and so many amazing food bloggers that they actually included 6 in the final mix – 3 from the West Coast, and 3 from the East.

I am not one to beg, but please, please, PLEASE take a second and vote for me to represent the East Coast in Tuscany this fall. I can’t even tell you what a dream this trip would be.

And I promise – I will do my best to recreate the grape-stomping scene from I Love Lucy if I get to go. That is a done deal. I mean, it’s the one goal I have if I ever make it Italy. It just has to happen.




  1. I just got the news too and can hardly believe it! Love your blog– good luck!

  2. Woohoo – that is SO exciting! You’ve got my vote! :) Oh, and I absolute love that scene from I Love Lucy. One of my favorites for sure!

  3. BRANDY! YOU ROCK (literally). And you got my vote! xoxo ~K

  4. Congratulations Brandi!! Woot woot! So excited for you!

  5. VOTING! I’ve got my fingers crossed for you!!

  6. I was so happy to see your face among the finalists! I am keeping fingers crossed for you (and for me, ha ha – it would be awesome to meet, in Italy!).

  7. Hi Brandi,

    I got this page by following the link from my sister’s facebook page (Michelle Ornat). When I clicked on the links above, the page couldn’t be found. I just thought I would let you know so you can fix them. I will definitely put a vote in for you. Good luck! Great site!
