World Sight Day: #MakeVisionCount
This year, Combat Blindness International invites you to explore your other senses as we host a blindfolded beer, tea, and cheese tasting. Led by Hoby Whedler, a flavor scientist and wine educator who has been blind since birth, this tasting will be a guided experience in life without sight and the smell, taste, and feel of some the best products Madison has to offer.
Learn more about Henry “Hoby” Whedler
Wedler is a flavor scientist and a wine educator who’s been leading blind wine tastings at the Francis Ford Copolla Winery since 2011 – but unlike the majority of his audience, he’s been legally blind since birth. Hoby recently graduated with his PhD in organic chemistry and works in the wine industry full time. At just 28, he was named as one of Forbes 30 Under 30: Food & Drink in 2016.
