wine(DGS)

Alcoholic beverage made from the fermented juice of grapes.

Example

I particularly enjoy red wine.

  • Sequence of movement

    The hand is formed into a loose fist, not including the index and middle fingers. Both fingers are slightly tucked away in a kind of V-shape, but bent at the middle joint. The hand formed in this way is now placed above the elbow on the upper arm of the person being addressed so that the upper finger segments touch it. The hand is now pulled upwards in a brisk straight movement. It should symbolize how a cork is pulled out of a bottle.

    Area of use

  • Sequence of movement

    Use your hand to form a pipette grip with the tip of your thumb and index finger almost touching and all other fingers spread away. You now place your thumb and index finger with their tips on your upper arm, just above your elbow. In your straight line, you now bring both fingertips up in parallel. About halfway up the upper arm, increase the distance between the two fingertips, but continue to move the lines upward until you finally bring the fingertips together below the shoulder in a horizontal motion. The resulting structure represents a wine glass.
