In the vineyard without barriers

In weekend people usually tend to be lazy. Well, not in our case because on 29th of April we spent a lovely Saturday at Aramic and Thesaurus wineries.

2 minibuses left Timisoara filled with wine lovers and volunteers of ROVINHUD wine fair.

The first stop was Aramic winery. We were greeted with a smile by Adalbert, the winemaker. He started to make us the tour of the cellar and then led us to vines.

We talked with him about shoots and work in the vineyard, but what impressed me most was the moment when he sat down at the same level of our wheelchairs to explain us better. For us, wheelchair users, it is very important to be able to carry a conversation at the same level, not just because it is comfortable but also is a sign of equality.

From the vineyard we went directly to the wine cellar, where we could saw the pressing machines, coolers and all the equipment they use in winemaking. We have tasted the following wines: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Muscat Ottonel, Rose, Merlot. They were all good! J

After 2 hours of talks and tastings, we took a delicious lunch and the terrace began to be filled with our laughter, a sign that although the group was made up of people with or without disabilities, it managed once again to cross any barriers.

After we headed to Thesaurus Wines where we were welcomed by Paul who also took us to the vineyard and told us about the wine cellar. I loved it so much that both in the vineyard and not only, we supported each other and we were mindful of the needs of those next to us.

We went to an elegant tasting room where we delighted our senses with the following wines: Italian Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat Ottonel, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon. I had also a new experience when I first tasted sea buckthorn brought by Paul. J

Before I left, I took a few moments to quietly admire the view of the vineyard and to breath the fresh air. I wanted to treasure in my heart the memory of a wonderful and inclusive day in which we managed to get closer to each other with the help of the wine.

We are grateful to Aramic and Thesaurus Wines for their hospitality! J
