This is a chance to spend an elegant evening with Max Riedel of the famed Riedel Austrian crystal company while enjoying incredible Ohio Wines.

The event will take place on Thursday, August 5, at Quail Hollow Resort in Concord, Ohio. The cost is $95 per person and includes the program, an hors d'oeuvres reception, fine wine tasting and a collection of lovely Riedel stemware ($125 retail value) to take home.

Upon arrival in the Quail Hollow ball room, you will enjoy a glass of sparkling water and a cheese display presented in part by our host, Quail Hollow resort and by Adam's Reserve cheddar cheese.

Then Max will work his "magic" with a presentation of the famed Riedel stemware showcasing some of the best Ohio wines from across the state. Following the program, Quail Hollow will present a lovely hors d'oeuvres reception complemented by another glass of award winning Ohio Wines.

The wines selected by the Riedel team for this special event include 2007 Grand River Valley Reserve Chardonnay from Debonne' Vineyards in Madison, 2008 Grand River Valley Gewürztraminer from Ferrante Winery in Geneva, 2008 Grand River Valley Pinot Noir Select from St. Joseph Vineyard in Thompson and from Dover, Ohio, Breitenbach Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon.
