SIGN LANGUAGE GLOSSARY OF WINE
This project was developed by Monteviejo Winery, Wine Institute, Mendoza Deaf Association, GILSA (Argentine Sign Language Instructors Group), the Artistic Experimentation Initiative Reencarnaciones and Topo.s Accesible Culture.
They all together developed an app to learn the Sign Language Glossary of Wine. It was created by the Mendoza Deaf Association (with subtitles in Spanish, English, French, and Portuguese) and can be downloaded to any mobile phone. The main objective is to include deaf people into the wine world and raise public awareness.
Monteviejo Wineries adds virtual wine tastings in Argentine Sign Language to this initiative.
The presentation of the app was accompanied by the media campaign #Dejateenseñarporelvino (Let wine teach you signs!), which aims at encouraging the learning of wine-related words in Argentine sign language in social networks.
