Professor Claus J Riedel was the first designer to recognize that the bouquet, taste, balance and finish of wines are affected by the shape of the glass from which they are drunk.
Handmade Minimum 24% Lead Crystal.
Recommended for: Burgundy (White), Chardonnay, Montrachet.
In 1961 Riedel introduced a revolutionary concept – a line of wine glasses created in different sizes and shapes. Before this, conventional stemware had used a single basic bowl shape, with only the size varying depending on use.
The concept was illustrated to perfection with the introduction of the hand-made Sommeliers series in 1973. The size and shape of each Sommeliers glass will deliver a wine or spirit to the nose and palate in such a way that it can fully express its personality.
