This year’s Imbibe 75 highlights people, businesses, and organizations working to build a better drinks world. For this episode of Radio Imbibe, we talk with one of this year’s People to Watch: Dr. Hoby Wedler. A native of California’s Sonoma County, Wedler is an organic chemist and entrepreneur with a deep enthusiasm for wine. Blind since birth, Wedler is the founder of Accessible Science, a nonprofit that hosted a chemistry camp for the blind and visually impaired; a co-innovator of Tasting in the Dark, a wine-tasting experience he conducted with the Francis Ford Coppola Winery; and a founder and sensory innovation expert for Senspoint, a creative firm that takes a sensory approach to making products and services more accessible and sustainable. To hear more about his approach to sensory literacy, check out his 2017 talk for TEDxSonomaCounty.
