Riedel Veritas Champagne plus Sparkling Wine Masterclass
March 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present an eye opening class with a free gift to take home!
The Riedel Veritas Champagne class, along with the Sparkling Wine Masterclass.
IN MY OPINION, THE SINGLE MOST IMPRESSIVE RIEDEL GLASS AVAILABLE TODAY
Prepare to be amazed. Stemware makes all the difference in the world, but rarely are you given the opportunity to try multiple wines from multiple glasses to prove the point. The analogy that I’ve used for years is this: you can have a top-level turntable, Sgt. Pepper’s Loney Hearts Club Band on 180g new press vinyl, and a $30,000 McIntosh amplifier … but if you have crappy speakers you have crappy sound. Speakers are a delivery system for hearing. Stemware is a delivery system for smell and taste, simple as that!
In this new class, we’ll be approaching the science of stemware and taste with the eye of a skeptic (because for years I was). We’ll be focusing on Sparkling Wine and Champagne, starting with an extensive discussion on the processes involved in making sparkling wine around the world. We’ll be tasting three AMAZING sparkling wines to emphasize the points (including an incredible Champagne!) while learning more about bubbly than you thought possible.
Then we’ll pull out this amazing glass, the Riedel Veritas Champagne stem, to learn about how the size and shape of the bowl change your impression of the wine and enhances the best factors.
At the end of the night, you’ll take home that Riedel Veritas Champagne glass for your future wine enjoyment (a $35.00 value! See here: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/235056/).
I hope you can join us for this very special evening!
