What is inside the glass is not the only thing that counts when tasting wine. The choice of glassware is also a key element which contributes to the full enjoyment of your favourite wine. To experience this wine revolution, a Riedel Comparative Wine Tasting by wine expert Tomas Clancy took place at the Miele Gallery, hosted by Mitchell & Son wine merchants.

Riedel has managed to elaborate specific glassware to optimise our enjoyment of wine by identifying glasses best suited to the most famous grape varieties. Thanks to these specific glasses, wine can show itself properly and express its complexity at its best.
