The family-run Austrian crystal manufacturer Riedel, which was established in 1756, is now the unrivalled world leader in wine glasses. Claus Riedel was the original pioneer in the 1950s to produce glasses based solely on sensory and taste considerations, through painstaking comparative tastings.
His son Georg and grandson Maximilian continue this quest for the wine glasses most suited to the hallmark features of each grape variety.
The Riedel masterclass is the most effective tool for demonstrating the significance of the glass for wine tasting.
It allows you to understand why the shape of the glass is far from being insignificant and should be adapted to the characteristics of the wine to show it at its best.
Just like loud-speakers, glasses reproduce to varying degrees of precision all the subtleties of a wine.
In this workshop, we will discover that suitable glasses convey many more flavours and aromas than any other receptacle.
