Riedel Sensory Workshop

Presented By:

We know everyone loves to drink wine but do we ever really experience wine? This is a class for the bonafide Oenophile within everyone (means wine-lover!)

From 17th-Century Bohemian Germany to 21st-century sunny Brisbane, the Riedel family have been pioneers in luxury glassware (hear their story here) designed to fully enhance the experience of drinking wine…  and this is your chance to explore their craftsmanship.

Designed by 10th and 11th generation glassmakers George and Maximilian Riedel, the Riedel Performance set is their most technologically advanced series yet.

Join us for a glimpse into Riedel’s fascinating 260-year history as you delve into the colour, aroma, flavour and profile of your wine, and see how the Performance glassware enhances these qualities.

Experience first-hand how decades of research and development in grape varietal specific glassware heightens the wine-drinkers experience, and come away with a newfound appreciation.

And the best part is you’ll walk away with your very own Riedel Performance set valued at $199. Set includes:

  • Riesling glass
  • Oaked Chardonnay glass
  • Shiraz glass
  • Pinot Noir glass
