Riedel (pronounced Ree-dle) is the industry standard for stemware and decanters for the wine connoisseur – it has b an illustrious history – family owned in Bohemia since 1756 (the same year as Mozart’s birthyear – it’s been that long!). With expert craftsmanship and a creative design team, their stemware and decanters are in high end restaurants and regular homes alike. It’s claim to fame is that the stemware was specifically and scientifically designed so the first hit on your tongue accentuates the qualities of the grape varietal that the glass was designed for.

It’s been over a decade since we last had a Riedel Glass Tasting. deVine welcomes Alysha Harker, Regional Manager from Riedel Canada who will be coming in from Vancouver to do this presentation and wine tasting on Saturday, October 13th @ 7pm – $110/person. We will taste wine in the Veritas Line of Riedel stems, featuring the Pinot Noir, Syrah and Cabernet/Merlot glasses and best of all, you will take these stems home with you after the event in a three-pack box!

For those who don’t believe stemware makes a big difference in terms of wine enjoyment, this will be an eye-opening and life changing experience. For the converted, this will reinforce the importance of these varietally-designed stems that are recognized the world over by oenophiles.

We need 34 attendees to make this a go as there are a lot of moving parts, so we’re asking everyone to book by the latest midnight Sunday, September 30 as we will make the go-nogo decision then. You can register here..! This is a sit-down tasting.

Besides your set from the tasting, we are taking pre-orders for additional sets – $89.99/set. As we will be getting a deal from Riedel that we’re passing on to you (regular price is $129.99), these must be pre-ordered when you register for this event online. Please click this link – $89.99 to order more sets. As this is a one shot deal, there won’t be extra sets for sale at the event, you must pre-order it.
