The Importance of the Right Glassware

“The pleasure of enjoying fine wine starts with the right glass,” says Michael Crossley from the Reciprocal Wine Trading Company. And then he cites the famous Riedel VINUM Glass Collection as an example. Created in 1986, the VINUM became the first machine-made glass in history to be based on the characteristics of grape varietal. “VINUM was not developed on a drawing board, but in tasting workshops: the character of the wine determined the design and shape of the glass,” explains Michael.

At Creation we believe our meticulously crafted wines deserve to be served in specially-designed, superior quality wine glasses. That’s why we’ve invested in Riedel’s finest for our tasting venue. The effect of these glasses on our wines certainly enhances the tasting experience. But don’t just take our word for it. Join us for an informative presentation and exciting tasting conducted by the knowledgeable Michael Crossley, together with Jaideep Desai (Regional Director for Riedel) and decide for yourself!
