    Maximilian Riedel On Why Your Wine Glass Matters

    Maximilian Riedel On Why Your Wine Glass Matters

    Using the same glass to drink red wines, white wines, and pink wines -- while switching to a "Champagne" flute for sparkling wines, is not the best way to enjoy wine. Listen to Maximilian Riedel, CEO and president of Riedel Crystal, explain why you'll want to use a specifically shaped glass that is designed for the type of wine you're drinking. You may be stunned to find out what he has to say about what kind of glass is best for Champagne and sparkling wines -- it's not what you think (and not THAT, either!).
    Show Notes:
    Do you use one, favorite glass for drinking red wines, white wines, and pink wines — while using a flute for sparkling wines such as Champagne? If so, then you’re doing it ALL WRONG.
    In this podcast episode, wine glass expert and producer Maximilian Riedel of Riedel Crystal explains why you should use a specifically shaped glass that is designed for the wine type you are drinking. And you may be stunned to find out what he has to say about the use of a Champagne glass (also known as a “flute”) when drinking sparkling wines.
    Born in Austria, Maximilian is the 11th-generation CEO and president of Riedel Crystal, a glassware manufacturer established in 1756(!) and best known for pioneering the concept of grape variety-specific glassware. Maximilian began interning for his family’s company at age 12, and by age 25, moved to the United States and to take on the role of CEO, Riedel Crystal North America. It was then that Maximilian began to make his mark on both the family business as well as the wine industry, serving as the face of the company by hosting workshops and seminars while also developing innovations in stemware and decanters. For example, while living in a tiny NYC apartment, with cabinets too small to house tall-stemmed wine glasses, Maximilian designed the world’s first variety-specific stemless wine glasses (the Riedel “O” Series).
    Between that time and his promotion to the parent company in Kufstein, Maximilian turned Riedel into a household name, the leading wine glass manufacturer in the world, with its variety-specific glasses carried in nearly every major retail outlet — such as Macy’s, Bloomingdales, Williams-Sonoma, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Crate & Barrel, and many others.

    What You Should Know About Wine Ratings with W.R. Tish

    What You Should Know About Wine Ratings with W.R. Tish

    If you've been to a wine shop and seen a numerical rating on a wine -- such as a 90-point score -- you may be wondering if that's a reason to purchase a wine. Or, maybe you're familiar with wine scores and want to know where they came from, why they exist, and/or if you should trust them. In this episode, W.R. Tish -- the first editor-in-chief of Wine Enthusiast magazine and a "recovering wine critic" -- tackles all of these questions and more. This episode will help you understand what wine scores mean and how you can use them -- or ignore them -- to guide your next wine purchase.
    About W.R. Tish
    William R. Tisherman, under the pen name W. R. Tish, has been writing and speaking about wine and food for over two decades. Like Cher, Sting and Kermit, one name does the trick. Everyone knows him as Tish.
    The Pittsburgh native’s first brush with wine was proofreading for Les Amis du Vin wine society in suburban DC. Stung by the wine bug, Tish moved to New York as a founding editor of Wine Enthusiast. He steered the publication for a decade as a spunkier, funnier alternative to Wine Spectator, then went on to write for numerous wine magazines and websites—earning a reputation for both comic relief and on-trend commentary—and founded Wine For All in 1998.
    Through Wine For All and the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan, Tish has developed events for a variety of Fortune 500 corporations, industry trade groups and law firms—not to mention private parties that would make Bacchus envious. Having first honed his writing at The Harvard Lampoon, his approach to wine veers naturally toward comedy. At the same time, his extensive experience in the trade—most recently at Beverage Media and SevenFifty Technologies—ensures that delicious and interesting wines are always in play.
    Wine For All brings the humor hammer to gastronomy, as captured in Tish’s motto: “I drink, therefore I am; I eat, therefore I am more.”

    Italy's Friendliest Wine With Alessandro Medici

    Italy's Friendliest Wine With Alessandro Medici

    Fifth-generation winemaker Alessandro Medici comes from a land of supercars (Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati), exotic motorcycles (Ducati), fashion (Armani, MaxMara), and famous food (Parmegiano-Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma, Balsamic vinegar, Bolognese sauce) -- the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. In this conversation, he talks about the wine he makes, and the locals drink -- a refreshing, food-friendly, fizzy red called Lambrusco -- and why you should drink it, too.
    About Medici Ermete
    Medici Ermete has been owned and operated by five generations of the Medici family, who have devoted themselves to the winery since its inception in 1890. Alberto Medici, who oversees the production of Medici wines with his father, Giorgio, was born in Reggio Emilia and educated in Economics at the University of Parma. He represents the fourth generation of the Medici family, along with his cousin, Pierluigi, and his sister, Alessandra. The fifth generation, represented by Alessandro Medici, joined the family winery with the aim of both preserving and evolving the historic family property. Alessandro’s first project was the creation of Phermento, a Lambrusco produced in the ancestral or ‘pet-nat’ method, which embraces ancient techniques and modern winemaking simultaneously.
    The Medici family’s dedication has been rewarded by the success of its wines worldwide. Today Medici Ermete wines are exported to more than seventy countries around the world. Their message of quality has been resoundingly reinforced by elite accolades such as Gambero Rosso’s coveted “Tre Bicchieri” award and the best in show Champion Trophy, earned at the 2010 International Wine Challenge in London.
