Upcoming Riedel tasting at the Bluebird
Does a wineglass really make a difference in one’s appreciation of wine? The folks at Riedel definitely want you to think so. Riedel has been making glass in Bohemia for 250 years but only in the past 50 years has Riedel focused on producing not just any wineglass but a wineglass specifically made for each particular grape, matching the character of the wine to enhance one’s enjoyment of their vinous delights.
Well, I’m going to be able to put the wineglasses to the test on Tuesday, Jan. 27th when my favourite little wineshop, The Bluebird on the King’s Rd will be hosting a ” winetasting with a difference.” We’ll be tasting 6 classic wines, among them; champagne, Old World Sauvignon, Old World Pinot and some other choice wines in Riedel glasses.
We’ll be using the Vinum series of Riedel wineglasses for the tasting. The price is £60 for the tasting but before you throw up your hands and say, “Too rich for my blood!” remember, you’ll be able to take home a set of 6 Riedel Vinum series glasses (made with over 24% lead crystal) as well as tasting some seriously good wine ( Penny never scrimps on the wines) and sampling Bluebird canapés, which will be served after the tasting.
Tickets are limited so what are you waiting for? Broken all your good glasses over the holidays? Need replacements? Here is the perfect opportunity to replenish your cupboard.
See you then!
