Riedel Veloce Glass Varietal Specific Tasting
January 25, 2023 at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm EST
Guests leave with 1 set of 4 Riedel Veloce Glasses
Did you know that the shape and size of your glass will affect the aroma, flavour and overall profile of wine?
One may be skeptical about the idea that the shape of a glass can have the slightest influence on the nose and even more so on the palate when tasting a wine. And yet – all it takes is one comparative tasting to measure the impact.
This RIEDEL(like nee-dle) guided workshop will allow you to understand, through a selection of wine varietal glasses, why the shape of a glass, far from being insignificant, must be adapted to the characteristics of the wine to offer the most pleasurable drinking experience.
Our master hosts for this evening include Riedel Canada Director Adam Buffan and Genevieve Beaudoin, and Lauren Hayes Van den Weghe of The Vine Agency and 30.50 Imports.
We will use the new RIEDEL Veloce collection for this Master Class. Veloce is an ultra-lightweight machine-made collection, created by using state-of-the-art technology and being a true precision tool.
At the end of the tasting, each participant will leave with a set of 4 Riedel glasses, with a value of $180!
