Experience how the right glassware can enhance your wine drinking experience, plus take home your own RIEDEL Performance Tasting Set valued at $220!

As you are guided through four premium wines, you will be amazed at how dramatically the shape and quality of a glass affects a wine’s aromas, flavours and balance.

Did you know that the shape and size of your glass will affect the aroma, flavour and overall profile of wine? 

A RIEDEL Sensory Tasting is an entertaining and educational opportunity to explore how the right glassware can enhance your wine drinking experience. The tasting demonstrates the important role a wine glass plays in wine enjoyment. This fascinating class incorporates decades of research and development in grape varietal specific glassware and will give you a glimpse into RIEDEL's 260-year history of design and invention.

With the use of four glasses from one of their newest series, RIEDEL Performance, you can see for yourself why shape matters. This series is the first designed by both Georg and Maximilian Riedel, 10th and 11th generations, who joined forces to bring wine lovers their most technologically advanced series yet. RIEDEL Performance combines decades of experience in grape varietal specific glassware with an optic effect that heightens the drinker’s experience.

The tasting features four RIEDEL Performance - Sauvignon Blanc, Oaked Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. As you taste through four varietally matched premium wines you'll be amazed at how the shape of a glass affects a wine’s aroma and flavour dramatically.

Participants will walk away with a RIEDEL Performance Tasting Set valued at $220

Glasses used in the session are participants to take when the evening concludes.

We absolutely loved our Riedel Sensory Tasting last night. It was a fun and very interesting night for our friend’s birthday gift. Four regular wine drinkers had no idea that glassware had such an impact on wine! Phil is passionate about his work, interesting and funny. Thoroughly recommend! We will back for another class!
