This Saturday, Kevin’s tasting is as much about the glass as it is about what goes into it. Sure, there’ll be four wines, and each will be prototypical, but ultimately, we’re here to show you what a difference the glass makes. Riedel glassware is made according to the characteristics of the wines meant to be poured into them. A rich buttery Chardonnay requires a different glass than a crisp Verdicchio, and an aromatic Pinot Noir needs something decidedly disparate from what a gutsy Cabernet Sauvignon requires.
Taste four wines in four different glasses and discover what works best, and how a wine that costs $20 can taste better in the right glass than a wine that costs significantly more in the wrong glass. The tasting is this Saturday, November 4, at 2 pm, it’s $10 plus tax and tip, and it promises to be an eye-opening experience. We hope you’ll join us. If you’d like to, please recall that reservations must be made in person or by phone, as email and web reservations won’t hold a seat for you.
