Able Australia Wine Tasting
We had the privilege of hosting a group from Able Australia. The group consisted of clients who were blind, deaf and/or mute and their one-on-one carers. There was a huge range in wine tasting experience levels, but everyone was keen to broaden their education. Bob led the group on one of his legendary tutored tastings - though I'm fairly sure this was a bit of a first for him too.
We loved the opportunity to emphasize that wine can be appreciated by everyone, regardless of disability - the only senses you need are taste and smell.
We hope that Able Australia enjoyed the experience as much as we did, and we hope to see them again soon.
"Speak with hands, listen with touch" . Amazing! We have great respect for these people who taught US so much.
