Atkinson’s, in partnership with Riedel is proud to present a special one night tasting event to launch their new Performance series glassware. Does the shape of a glass influence our perception of wine? Can the shape impact our enjoyment of different grape varietals?
Join Riedel Representative Alysha Harker as she guides you through a tasting experience like no other. You will explore wine varietals and how the glass shape can transform your tasting experience. is the result of three generations of research, development and experience in creating functional grape varietal specific glassware.
Riedel’s newest line of stemware, Performance, is available exclusively in Vancouver at Atkinson’s. These new glasses are beautiful, functional, and make your wine taste even better!
The range is comprised of varietal specific glasses with tall graceful stems and extra fine, laser polished rims. They’re modern with a twist of an optic, rippling effect on the inside of the bowl of the wine glass. These optic waves are designed to increase the surface area of the bowl by 8% to 10%, which increases the fullest flavour and aroma. By opening up the wine with the increased surface area, these glasses highlight more subtle earthy flavours that are often overwhelmed by sweet, fruity notes. You’ll also notice a longer after taste.
This series includes seven glasses: Cabernet, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay, Champagne and spirits.
