We would like to say a big thank you to Riedel UK for their help over recent months in particular their advice when designing the gallery and slots for the Connoisseur Presentation Table. It has enabled us to ensure that the table is truly functional and is able to present their glassware in a unique manner.
Steven McGraw and his team at Riedel UK gave us the opportunity to raise awareness by displaying our tables at the wine tasting event at Vinopolis hosted by George Riedel himself (very entertaining), back in late September 2011 (see photo). The event was both fascinating and informative with an opportunity for participants to purchase glassware from the vast range on display – highly recommended.
After deciding to exhibit at Grand Designs NEC only a week later, Pat Booth from P Plus came to our aid in helping to design and set up our stand at short notice.
The show was a great success despite the stand’s location near the food hall!
"Guess the number of corks competition" - thanks to all those that took part. Total number of corks in the giant sized glass was........................................124! The winner received a bottle of fine Champagne and the runner up, a turned wooden goblet with an inlaid half crown coin.
Since Christmas we have been developing new tables and working on the website. There are several designs on the drawing board and at prototype stage at the moment; we hope to release these gradually throughout the summer.
As you can see, our website is of a non-standard design. We wanted it to reflect the quality and nature of the product so it has, inevitably, taken longer than we expected. Hopefully you like it and will be able to get a feel for our product from the photographs and descriptions.
