Riedel Wine Glass Seminar | Thursday, September 6

Join Riedel & Denver Food + Wine Festival for an educational and entertaining program that will change your wine life forever! In a unique and fascinating wine glass tasting, Doug Reed, Riedel ambassador, will demonstrate the relationship between the shape of a glass and our perception and enjoyment of wines. Experience first-hand the effect that the shape of a wine glass has on each unique varietal, how stemware translates and delivers the bouquet, taste, balance and finish of a wine to the senses. After the seminar you will take home your own 4 glass Riedel kit valued at $120 with one glass for each varietal.
