Fine wine, fine stemware, fine art

"The Riedel family has never stamped its name on a single bottle of wine. But over the past 50 years, this Austrian clan of master glassmakers has done more to enhance the oenophile's pleasure than almost any winemaking dynasty". (Time Magazine)

Participants will receive a free Vinum XL tasting set valued at $122.99

Maximilian Riedel of the Austrian glassmaking dynasty will conduct a wine tasting at Elk Creek Vineyards, Kentucky’s largest winery, on Saturday, May 15, 2010, from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. A limited number of tickets are available for this prestigious event which also features an exhibit of Thomas Arvid’s wine art.

Thirty-two-year-old Riedel, CEO of Riedel Crystal of North America, conceived the “O” stemless glass series and co-designed several decanters and collections. He will acquaint participants with glass structure and varietal-specific design, pairing these attributes with Elk Creek Vineyards award-winning wines. Palate-pleasing Kenny’s Cheeses will also be served.

Elk Creek Vineyards is the sole Arvid dealer in Kentucky; Thomas Arvid’s work is distinguished by oversized still life compositions of wine and the rituals surrounding its consumption.
