Sip, Swirl and Learn Riedel Workshop Dinner

Food and Wine

5 Nov 2020 Weekly Event

Ever wondered why oaked Chardonnays are described as buttery, but yours always taste woody and bland? What about Pinot Noir, which is supposed to be fragrant and complex, but smells and tastes flat?

10th generation Georg Riedel says that the ‘proper glass can function like a loudspeaker for flavours in wines’, and now you can experience why varietal glasses matter. Regardless of your knowledge of wine, a Riedel and Contentious Character Glass Tasting offers you an engaging and educational opportunity to learn how the shape of the glass can affect wines. You will walk away with an enlightened perspective on the sensory experience of wine.

Enjoy the Riedel hosted experience featuring Contentious Character wines and take home your set of four Performance glasses with the opportunity to buy more Riedel Glassware and Contentious Character wines at a significant discount. Performance set includes – Sauvignon Blanc, Oaked Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet. Then sit down to a three-course dinner at the restaurant.

The workshop includes tutoring, a set of four Riedel Performance Glasses, tasting platter, and main and dessert with your group in their restaurant.

Groups must comply with social distancing and restrictions-please contact the host via email upon booking to confirm your place.
