The wine glass has a long history, stretching back through centuries untold.

Thirty years ago, Claus Riedel revolutionised the wine glass, with the realisation that the shape of a wine glass has a profound effect on the way you experience the wine inside. The aroma, the balance, the taste…every aspect of your wine is enhanced when the right glass is used. This simple idea completely changed the glassware industry forever.

The original Sommeliers collection came to represent the lynchpin of the Riedel glassware range, and was created by Claus Riedel in collaboration with Associazione Italiana Sommeliers. Forty years after its first production, Riedel celebrate this remarkable collection with the extravagant Sommeliers Black range. Here, mouth-blown crystal is blown in to shape and coloured with the masterful addition of cobalt and magnesium to create bold splashes of red and black, the signature colours of the Riedel name.
Among the most costly of dry white wines is the Montrachet appellation from Burgundy; chardonnay such as this is grown in no other microclimate in the world. To complement such a prestigious wine, the Montrachet glass was created to direct flavours onto the correct area of the tongue, so that its full flavours can be appreciated. Serious in its function and form, each glass from the Sommeliers Black collection is the pinnacle of Riedel’s design aptitude and love of wine.

Sommeliers Black Montrachet features:
  • Mouth-blown in Austria from minimum 24% lead crystal.
  • Solid black glass base and red stem coloured with the addition of cobalt and magnesium, made possible by master glass-makers.
  • Recommended for the exclusive Montrachet Chardonnays of Burgundy, along with other fine dry whites.
  • Beautifully presented as a single piece in a Riedel Wine Glass tube.

Care & Cleaning:
  • All Riedel glassware is dishwasher safe, and has been tested by Riedel to ensure a longer lifespan when washed in this manner.
  • If you do need to wash your Riedel glassware by hand, wash the glass under warm water with detergent and rinse the glass very carefully.
  • To avoid any staining of your Riedel glasses, you should wash them using only soft water – that is, water with a low mineral content. If stains emerge, you can use white vinegar to remove them.
  • Avoid scratches to your glassware by not allowing your Riedel glasses to come in contact with any other glasses or metal.
  • Polish your glasses using two towels, and avoid holding the glass by the base – this could case the stem to snap.
  • Keep your cleaning towels clean as well, in order to avoid rubbing any grease on to your Riedel glassware. Wash your cleaning towels at boiling temperature, without linen or fabric softener.
  • Store your glasses away from other items with a strong odour, as this can taint the glass and in turn your wine.
