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.

As an official partner of Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, join us at one of two tastings on Saturday 9 March. 

Hosted at the House of Food and Wine at the Malthouse Theatre, 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 will be varietally matched to four premium Australian wines:

  • Riesling
  • Oaked Chardonnay
  • Pinot Noir
  • Shiraz

Each ticket includes:

  • A seat at our enlightening Riedel Sensory Workshop
  • A set of four beautiful Riedel Performance glasses, valued at $199.90, to take home after the Workshop
  • General admission to Melbourne Food & Wine Festival's House of Food & Wine on Saturday 9 March, including chef demonstrations, talks, workshops, food trucks, bars and more.
