Did you know that the shape and size of your glass will affect the aroma, flavour and overall profile of wine? A Riedel Sensory Workshop is an entertaining and educational opportunity to explore how the right glassware can enhance your wine drinking experience.
Held at Bar Lourinhã in the heart of Melbourne's CBD, a Riedel Sensory Workshop demonstrates the important role our wine glass plays in wine enjoyment. This fascinating class incorporates decades of research and development in grape varietal specific glassware and will give you a glimpse into Riedel's 260-year history of design and invention.
With the use of four glasses from one of our newest series, Riedel Performance, you can see for yourself why shape matters. This series is the first designed by both Georg and Maximilian Riedel, 10th and 11th generations, who joined forces to bring wine lovers their most technologically advanced series yet. Riedel Performance combines decades of experience in grape varietal specific glassware with an optic effect that heightens the drinker’s experience.
These four glasses, which you will take home at the end of the event, will be varietally matched to four premium Australian wines:
- 2018 O'Leary Polish Hill River Riesling
- 2017 Vasse Felix Premier Chardonnay (Oaked)
- 2017 Dalrymple Pinot Noir
- 2015 Yalumba Paradox Shiraz
This tasting is limited to adults 18+ years of age only.
Please note this event does not include any food.
