Riedel wine tasting

Posted By on Mon, Feb 21, 2011 at 12:01 PM

Maximilian Riedel, the CEO of wine glass company Riedel, hosted a comparative wine tasting at the Marriott Uptown on Friday, Feb. 18.

Riedel (prounounced ree-dl) was quite humorous during his 1 hour talk. He mentioned that the perfect pour is two fingers ... as in two fingers horizontal, not vertical. During the tasting Riedel explained how the shape of glassware affects the aroma and taste of wine, passed along a few wine tricks and tips, and demonstrated how to use his newest "Eve" decanter (which looks like a coiled snake).
