TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Georg Riedel, head of the world-renowned
brand of glassware, brings his new glassware and wine tasting seminar
to the 2012 CRFA Show, March 4-6, at the Direct Energy Centre in
In a unique and fascinating wine tasting, the global head of Riedel
Crystal and 10th generation of the Riedel family, Georg Riedel, will
demonstrate the relationship between the shape of a glass and our
perception and enjoyment of wines. Participants will taste and compare
three of the most popular grape varietals in different Riedel
grape-specific glass shapes.
Riedel, a 250-year-old global leader in varietal-specific crystal
glassware, is the first in history to recognize that the taste of wine
is affected by the shape of the glass from which it is consumed.
Riedel has been recognized as the unrivalled "wine friendly" glassware
brand to complement specific wines and spirits.
Riedel's Restaurant XL is a varietal specific collection that offers the
perfect shape for wines such as a young concentrated Cabernet
Sauvignon, a sophisticated Syrah or a delicate Pinot Noir. XL is the
tallest and most exquisite restaurant line to date, and the stunning
design draws attention to wine service.
