Did you know that the size and shape of your wine glass can have a big impact on how your drink tastes?
At a workshop on 24 September, organized by the Chamber’s YEC and WEC groups, participants were led on a tasting journey by Victor Ulrich, Head of Riedel Asia Pacific, to learn how to heighten their enjoyment by choosing the right vessel for the different types of wine.
Members also learned about pairing wine with chocolate for the best taste experience, with the help of chocolates from Lindt. For example, a good wine-food pairing, such as a bold Cabernet Sauvignon and dark chocolate, can easily be compromised by drinking the wine out of the “wrong” shape.
Guests also learned about the importance of decanting wine to improve its flavour, as well as the best way to care for their glassware.
