SOLD OUT: Great Wines and the Glasses That Love Them: Set of Riedel Glasses included!
This event has sold out. For more great events check out the Wine Lovers of NYC Meetup page.
Join the Wine Lovers of NYC Meetup group, led by wine enthusiast and entrepreneur Barney Lehrer, for a unique wine experience on September 10th at the Riedel Crystal of America showroom at the Forty One Madison building on Manhattan’s famed Madison Avenue. Learn about how the shape of a glass changes the taste of a wine, while participating in a chocolate and wine pairing demonstration. And bring home a set of Riedel red wine glasses (cab, syrah and pinot noir).
The wines at the tasting will be:
Stags’ Leap Winery Napa Valley Cabernet (ratings from 90 to 93)
Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz (ratings from 90 to 92)
Etude Carneros Pinot Noir (ratings from 90 to 94)
The tasting is designed to help educate on the difference drinking wine from the right glass can make, and will include a chocolate and wine pairing demonstration. George J Riedel, the tenth-generation head of Riedel Crystal, developed these tastings in order to add another layer of enjoyment and complexity to the wine drinking experience and to demonstrate how the shape of the glass truly makes a difference in not only the taste of wine, but in the way chocolate tastes when consumed after drinking wine from the proper glass.
