The Perfect Gift - From The Wine School of Philadelphia

Salud! A Votre Sante! L'Chaim! Skal! Cheers!

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - November 20, 2007) - These are just some of the many toasts certain to be heard now that the holiday season is upon us. And for those who would like to master the art of the toast, follow these simple guidelines:

--  Stand when toasting and raise your glass to the honoree
--  Be charming, humorous, and keep it short
--  Use the Wine School of Philadelphia's new Signature Wine Glasses

A good wine glass does make a difference in how a wine will taste. And the holidays are well-known for inspiring the wine lovers among us to pull out the stops and purchase a bottle we may not normally buy. It's also the time of year when a few gems or two are culled from the cellar.

What better gift for loved ones and hosts alike than a pair of elegant wine glasses packaged in a hand-crafted artisanal wood box?

The Wine School is pleased to present its new Signature Wine Glass. Designed in Italy by Renato Cantoni -- an enologist who once worked for Riedel -- these glasses boast a unique design, incredible structure, and are created using the finest lead crystal available. For strength, the molten crystal is infused with the alloy Nessium, creating a glass which is dishwasher safe and arguably, one of the best on the market.

Each glass is etched with the Wine School logo and exhibits remarkable sturdiness as well as an understated, classic beauty.

Glassware of this caliber often costs $70-80 for a single glass. We are packaging a pair of these wine glasses along with our Wine Tasting Guide, offering the entire Wine School Tasting Kit for $50, plus $15 shipping and handling.

And don't forget yourself this holiday season -- who better to buy you the perfect wine gift?
