Riedel, the Austrian based crystal glassware company, have an uncanny knack for making some of the best loved and best designed glassware in the business. Specifically designed and shaped according to the character of the wine, their glasses are the glasses of choice among those that enjoy their wine as it should be. This September, Georg Riedel (a 10th generation glassmaker and owner of Riedel crystal), will be co-hosting a special tasting, alongside Angelo Gaja (4th generation owner of Gaja Winery) at Vinopolis. Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Riedel’s Sommelier collection, the tasting is from 7pm Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 8.30pm, with VIP tickets £175 per person (ticket price includes a Sommelier glass set worth £315) and standard tickets at £125 per person (ticket price includes a Vinum XL set worth £82.50)
Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, the Sommeliers collection remains Riedel’s signature range today. When the collection was launched in 1973, it illustrated a quantum leap in glass design following Claus Riedel’s pioneering work in the creation of the world’s first ever stemware that matches, and complements different wines, and which is both functional and beautiful.
