"What a difference … " a glass can make.
 
(Not quite the original tune, but use your imagination.)

 Riedel … the Last Word in Wine Glasses

Does the shape of a glass influence our perception of wine?
 
Can the shape of a glass impact our enjoyment of food?
 
Join us for an informative, interesting wine and glass experience, where we will explore the difference a glass can make.
 
Mari Beth Baumberger, Riedel Regional Manager, will personally guide us through this special, sensory tasting.
 
A Little History
 
Professor Claus Josef Riedel was the first designer to recognize that the bouquet, taste, balance and finish of wines are affected by the shape of the glass from which they are consumed. More than 50 years ago he began his pioneering work to create stemware that would match and complement different wines and spirits. In the late 1950s, Riedel started to produce glasses, which at that time were a design revolution.    Claus Josef Riedel
