On December 6th, Riedel, the world’s leading wine glass company, will host a meeting at Mount Pleasant Winery in Augusta to help design the world’s first glass for Vignoles. Flying in from Austria for the event will be George Riedel, head of the company that bears the family’s name.
Also in attendance will be a panel of 20 wine industry professionals who will taste Vignoles from 12 different glasses. The goal is to determine which size and shape glass best compliments the varietal’s aromas, flavors and mouth feel.
The event is hosted by the Missouri Wine and Grape Board. Vignoles is the second most widely grown grape in Missouri.
