Riedel Glass Tasting
Attending a Riedel Glass Tasting session should be at the top of every wine lover's To Do list.
A roller-coaster ride for the senses, this session defines how the design and shape of a glass can, and does, accentuate the impact of wine on our palate. Sceptics leave these sessions as disciples.
Riedel Australia's Managing Director, Mark Baulderstone, will demonstrate the importance of varietal specific stemware with three red wine glasses from the Vinum XL series.
The newest element of the tasting, and some would say the most delicious, reflects our new and exciting partnership with Lindt chocolate. We have heard it remarked that the choice of your glass doesn't matter as much once you add food into the equation but Riedel are here to prove you wrong! Using three dark chocolates from Lindt's Excellence range, Mark will show you how food, wine, and glass matching plays a hugely important role on your enjoyment.
Riedel glasses are now used in every major wine show across Australia, many of the top hatted restaurants, and are the tasting glass of choice for an increasing number of cellar doors. Those decisions have been taken because these glasses work.
Do your understanding of aroma and flavour a favour, and join Mark for a sensual journey that is more than memorable.
