Club Member Event Serves Up Wine Demonstration by Riedel
Saturday, Nov. 2 ~ 7-9 p.m. at The Club @ the Boatyard
Wine connoisseurs, you’re going to want to sign up for this one. The Club @ the Boatyard is hosting a special Member Event with the Riedel Wine Glass Company on Nov. 2. Come savor the difference that the appropriate glass makes for three varietals of red wine.
Enjoy an informative evening with demonstrations and pourings by representatives from the Riedel Wine Glass Company, an 11th generation family-owned business since — amazingly, 1756.
You will get to experience the full flavor and impact that the shape and size of a wine glass has on your favorite wine grape as you taste a New World Pinot Noir, an Old World Syrah and a Cabernet/Merlot. At the end of the evening you get to take home your three new wine glasses. The event also includes a water demonstration as an important part of the wine tasting experience.
Cost of the event is $60 per person, plus a $1 membership to The Club @ the Boatyard. Please sign up – and soon – with Boatyard Hospitality Manager Danielle Taylor at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (253) 358-6546. Or with Assistant Hospitality Manager Jacques Henry at email@example.com.
The Riedel Wine Glass Company points out that glassware consists of three parts: the bowl, the stem and the base. While the height of the stem and the width of the base are simply part of the glass’s architecture, the bowl is the critical part of the design, they explain on their website.
“Riedel’s Grape Varietal Specific glassware features finely tuned bowls based on three variables – shape, size and rim diameter – to help translate the ‘message’ of wine to our senses,” says Riedel.
