Riedel has been the standard in crystal glassware for 250 years. Through hard work and a lot of experimenting they have developed a glass for each varietal, thus proving that the shape of the glass you use does really matter. Come taste through 5 wines using four differently shaped glasses and see how much different the wine tastes from each glass.

Guests receive all 4 glasses as a souvenir

“The finest glasses for both technical and hedonistic purposes are those made by Riedel. The effect of these glasses

on fine wine is profound. I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make.”

—Robert M. Parker, Jr. – The Wine Advocate
