Precision in a glass! The Riedel Veloce Tasting

Friday, 19 May 2023, 17:00-18:00
Kongresshaus, Room: Congress Hall, 1st floor

Founded in 1756 and now in its 11th generation, the Riedel Glassworks has devoted all its energy and passion to the development of perfect wine glasses. Since 1958 in particular, the renowned glassworks has dedicated itself to researching the olfactory and taste components of wine and their development in the glass and has repeatedly set new standards with this almost revolutionary pioneering work! A significant contribution to a better understanding of wine. Not only have individual glass series been precisely matched to the respective grape varieties, but the design of the glasses and the feel are also groundbreaking and sensational.
The latest creation is the Veloce series, the result of countless tastings of various grape varieties from differently shaped glasses. The spectacular design of the Veloce glasses with their extreme diamond shape gives the wine more space in the glass and allows the aromas to play freely, comparable to decanting. In this informative and expertly commented tasting, you will learn a lot about wine glasses, the choice of the right glass for the grape variety or the characteristic wine style, and above all how much the right glass influences the characteristics of the wine. An exciting tasting, not only for newcomers to the world of wine.
Participants may take home their tasting set worth €119 afterwards.
