LONG SHADOWS WINES

At its inception, Long Shadows brought seven highly acclaimed vintners from the major wine regions of the world to Washington State. Each vintner committed to crafting wines from Washington fruit into a style reflective of their own history and tradition that have continued to maintain world-class status. Under the steady hand of resident winemaker Gilles Nicault, Long Shadows continues producing those unique wines inspired by this laudatory team of highly acclaimed winemakers.

 

Additional sets available for $100 (for attendees only).

 

RIEDEL STEMWARE

With each ticket purchased you’ll receive: a presentation and sensory demonstration of the effects of this personal set of Riedel’s NEW ‘Veloce’ varietal-specific Tasting Glassware (Retail Value $158.00). One stem each for Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

THE EVENING AGENDA

  • The stemware presentation and demonstration begins precisely at 5:00PM. (Please arrive by 4:45 latest) Does your glass really affect your wine experience? Join us as we partner with Riedel Crystal for a fascinating sensory experience, demonstrating how the size and shape of your wine glass significantly impacts how different varietals taste. Featuring wines from Long Shadows, Riedel Ambassador MariBeth Baumberger will lead you through this unique seminar and discuss the design and engineering that goes into every glass. PLUS, You’ll Take Home a 4-Glass Set!

 

  • Long Shadows Winery President & CEO Dane Narbaitz will taste with you through four Long Shadows wines to demonstrate how your Riedel ‘Veloce’ Glassware will enhance your wine tasting experience. After the glassware demonstration join Dane and Vino! downstairs to mix & mingle while tasting the entire Long Shadows line up including a few library selections, and enjoying heavy hors d’oeuvres.

ABOUT RIEDEL GLASSWARE

Riedel’s revolutionary glassware sets the standard for fine wine stemware. Riedel’s world-class technicians were asked by George Riedel to create a series that was visually stunning, a delight to hold, and priced competitively. They accomplished their task with excellence, creating a wine glass collection for the 21st century. A machine-blown crystal glass of unsurpassed thinness and lightness was manufactured utilizing the very latest manufacturing techniques developed by the Weiden factory team.  These glasses are dishwasher safe, break resistant, and are suitable for long-term daily use at home.
