Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser, Toronto

With Henry Jablonski of Edward Jones & Doug Cohn of Riedel for an educational and entertaining evening hosted by Riedel & Miele.

Reidel is a company that has been revolutionizing the wine industry since the 18th century, and their innovative wine glass tasting events are a must-see for anyone who loves wine. In a unique & fascinating wine glass tasting event to raise money for Hurricance Sandy victims, they demonstrate the relationship between the shape of a wine glass & your perception and enjoyment of wines.

The Reidel tasting events typically involve a guided tasting of several wines, each served in a different glass designed specifically for that type of wine. As participants taste each wine, they are encouraged to observe how the shape of the glass affects their perception of the wine's aroma, taste, and overall character. This approach allows participants to discover how the right glass can enhance the flavors and aromas of a wine, while the wrong glass can diminish them.

One of the most remarkable things is that they truly demonstrate the power of the senses. By experiencing firsthand how the shape of a glass can influence our perception of a wine, participants gain a new appreciation for the importance of using the right glassware for their favorite wines. This knowledge can then be applied in their own homes, as they select the perfect glasses to enhance their wine-drinking experiences.

Overall, Reidel's wine glass tasting events are a unique and fascinating way to explore the relationship between the shape of a glass and our perception of wine. Whether you're a seasoned wine connoisseur or simply a lover of good wine, these events are sure to inspire and delight you.
