Educational     Tasting (sit down)     Wine    

Join Maximilian at the Waldorf London and participate in a unique sensory experience as, in a tutored comparative tasting, he guides you through an enjoyable and educational event, which shows the difference the shape and size of a glass makes to our perception and enjoyment of wine.

On arrival, guests will enter the historic ‘Palm Court’, first opened in 1908 and made famous in 1913 as ‘the home of the Tango’ which scandalised Edwardian Britain and again when, in 1958, it featured as the interior of the Titanic in the film ‘A Night to Remember’. A collection of Riedel’s most famous pieces will be on display and a bar will be available for the purchase of pre-event drinks.

The main event will then commence in the elegant and dramatic ‘Adelphi Ballroom’ where guests will be seated for Maximillian’s tasting which will last for approx. 90 minutes.


Tickets start from less than £60.00 per person (when bought as a group ticket) and all participants will each take home, free of charge, four Riedel Veritas glasses, worth £110, as used in the tasting.

VIP tickets for two are also available and include (per couple) £220 worth of glasses, plus a hand-made Riedel decanter, worth £395, plus a voucher for Champagne on arrival at the bar.

Full details of all available tickets can be found at www.riedel.co.uk


Doors will open at 6.00pm, with the tasting starting promptly at 7.00pm. Aged 18 and over only. Please arrive in good time as we regret there will be no admittance once the tasting has started.
