Join Riedel & the Denver Food + Wine Festival for an educational entertaining program that will change your wine life forever!
In a unique and fascinating wine tasting, sommelier Shelley Sale will demonstrate the relationship between the shape of a wine glass — the Riedel Performance glass — and your perception and enjoyment of the wine within.
With three generations of experience in creating functional, grape-varietal specific glassware, Riedel Performance is the result of 10th and 11th generations Georg and Maximilian Riedel’s drive to continually improve on what has come before.
This technologically advanced collection is the first Riedel series to feature bowls with a light optic impact. Detailed research by the Riedel family, aimed at improving the organoleptic wine experience, revealed that increasing the inner surface area of the glass had a positive impact on the perception of the bouquet and flavor of the wine.
This was achieved through a unique optical effect, which not only adds a pleasing visual aspect to the bowl, but also expands the surface area, allowing the wine to open up and fully show every aroma and subtle nuance.
Consisting of lightweight, durable, and dishwasher-safe shapes, Riedel Performance glasses are executed by machine in sparkling crystal glass.
After the seminar, you will take home your own four-glass Riedel Performance kit, valued at $178.
