The perfect match: Wine and glassware with Georg Riedel at the 2012 CRFA Show

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 Toronto.

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.

Sponsored in part by Hamilton Store Fixtures Ltd. and, the Riedel seminar is a paid session for hospitality industry delegates at the CRFA Show, with limited seating.
