RIEDEL STEMWARE SEMINAR JUNE 20

RIEDEL STEMWARE SEMINAR JUNE 20

Riedel Stemware Seminar June 20th, 6:30pm at Taylor’s Wine Shop Seating is Limited for this event. $55 per person (Take Home $60 worth of glassware) BUY TICKETS HERE! Ever wonder why some people make such a big deal about their wine glasses? Here’s your chance to see for yourself how big of a difference the wine glass can make in your taste and perception of the wine. Glassware and crystal makers since the mid-1700’s, the Riedel Stemware Company was the first one to demonstrate the size and shape of a wine glass can greatly alter how the wine tastes and is perceived. In the 1950’s Claus Riedel (pronounced like needle but with an “r”) introduced the first wineglasses designed specifically for certain wine varietals. Over the decades since, Riedel has introduced a number of “Varietal Specific” wine glasses and proven to just about everyone that the proper glass can enhance the enjoyment of your wine. We’ll be tasting 5 wines from their proper Riedel glass against the same wine from a non-Riedel “joker” glass and we’ll begin the night with a little sparkling wine. At the end of the night we guarantee that you’ll be amazed how much the glass influences the way your wines tastes AND you’ll get to take your 5 glasses home with you – 1 Sparkling, 1 Chardonnay, 1 Sauvignon Blanc, 1 Cabernet, & 1 Pinot Noir...

Ciders are naturally gluten free and often vegan which makes them a highly accessible drink to anyone. With roots in many different countries and cultures, ciders have evolved to be very complex. In the United States, a “cider” must be made from at least 50% apples. The addition of different fruits and spices make ciders unique and give people a variety when selecting the best one for them. Now check out whats brewing in Andi’s Beer Corner this Week: Dogfish Head Brewery, Milton DE Romantic Chemistry India Pale Ale ABV 7.2% Available in 6 pack bottles $15.99 A pioneer in the crafting of fruit-centric IPAs, Dogfish Head is no stranger to using real ingredients in their beers. The use of fruit has been a driving focus of theirs since the beginning. Experimenting with blueberries and cherries, their main goal was to make beers that were complex and not overly sweetened. A fruit beer for people who thought they hated fruit beers. In 1998 they brewed Aprihop,...
