Grape varietal specific glasses: Parsley in Time and Riedel aim to prove the point
There’s a major trend towards offering wine in glasses specifically designed for the type and grape variety – Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and so on. But is it all smoke and mirrors or is there science behind it? And how much will the average punter notice?
Now tableware specialist Parsley in Time has teamed up with the Riedel Wine Glass Company to offer restaurateurs, hoteliers and sommeliers the opportunity to find out the truth. On 27th September 2017, at 12 noon, a wine tasting with a difference will be held in The Royal Horticultural Halls, Victoria. Maximillian J. Riedel himself will be there, along with a team of experts. Their objective is to explain the concept and to demonstrate how these grape varietal specific glasses can enhance not only the taste and bouquet of the wine, but also the customer’s enjoyment.
“Every Riedel grape varietal specific glass is designed with input from the wine makers and experts, to show each varietal at its very best,” says Rob Blunderfield, marketing manager of Parsley In Time. “Presentation is increasingly important, especially as customers’ expectations and knowledge of wine rise. The tasting on 27 September will show just how a specifically designed glass can make a wine fly.”
Tickets for the wine tasting are free but spaces are limited. All participants will be given a set of Riedel glasses to take home. To book a ticket, call 020 8317 5080 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
