Riedel Glassware is borne from a true understanding of glass. Eleven generations of family business – from the forest-rimmed villages of Bavaria in the seventeenth century – have lead to an almost instinctive comprehension of the design and creation of truly glorious glassware. Riedel glassware is manufactured in Austria from only the finest quality materials, beautifully formed with the very best production standards.Made in Germany.
Created from machine-made, non-lead crystal.
Perfect for decanting Shiraz, but suitable for any red wine.

Their range is astounding, developed from a deep appreciation of wine by Claus Riedel who, over thirty years ago, designed a range of glasses based upon the different qualities and features of alcoholic beverages. From Shiraz to Champagne, each variety has a different glass, specifically designed to enhance the flavours and tannins of the wine through its structure. So, no matter what your favourite blend, it will never taste better than in a specifically designed, Riedel glass.
I prefer to decant wines, both young and old. It is a sign of respect for old wines and a sign of confidence in young…
For old wines, to quickly decant ensures that the wine’s flavour rings out, without being obscured by the deposits of time. Long decanting of young wines allows them to mature and develop, creating a rich, intricate drinking experience.
With this in mind, Riedel have created a range of decanters specifically designed for wine varieties. This beautiful decanter allows red wine to ripen and bloom, lifting it to a new level.
If you truly love wine, Riedel is essential.
