“Why Glassware Matters”

– Thursday, April 6th at 5 p.m. –
$45 per person

Riedel has been the standard in crystal glassware for 250 years. Through hard work and a lot of experimenting they have developed a glass for each varietal, thus proving that the shape of the glass you use does really matter. Come taste through 5 wines using four differently shaped glasses and see how much different the wine tastes from each glass.

Dinner will be served following the seminar, featuring all the same wines we’ve tasted, paired with each of 4 fabulous courses. Dinner is $64 per person.

Call the Orchard Inn at (828) 749-5471 to make your reservations for this special event.

Guests receive all 4 glasses as a souvenir – a $60 value

“The finest glasses for both technical and hedonistic purposes are those made by Riedel. The effect of these glasses on fine wine is profound. I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make.”
