All of these questions and more will be answered as we showcase some of Australia's most renowned winemakers and wines as well as some of the emerging superstars.

Discover the magic that is Riedel.

Be led through this Riedel Masterclass by Adam Hunter, the NSW Sales Manager for RSN Australia

Riedel1 6884_Performance Group_filled_landscape (002).jpg

Adam will take you on a journey using 4 different wines presented in a variety of glasses and whilst it may well seem like smoke and mirrors at the onset you will be truly amazed by the effect that the correct glass makes to the taste and enjoyment of the different wines. You really do have to experience if first hand to truly believe it.

The correct term is Performance Sensory Workshop but that makes it sound dull and boring and this evening is anything but….

As our gift to you, you will leave with a pack of 4 Riedel glasses or stems as the people from Riedel like to refer to them, valued at $200 (more than double the price of admission alone)

Places in this course are strictly limited and will sell rapidly so do not hesitate to book now.
