The swirl and arc of glass, snatching the light and spinning it to rainbows…
From the humblest bead to the thinnest extrusion, the true beauty and form of glass is astounding. And none can understand it better than those who have worked it, moulded it, created it from the first hot twist of sand.
Riedel Glassware is borne from just such an understanding. 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.
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.
Vitis – latin for vine – is created from the very best, machine-made Lead crystal. Graceful stems widen to a sudden flared bowl, which then arcs back to form a fine, beautiful rim. Specifically designed to let your wine breathe and the flavours meld and entwine, these truly exquisite glasses take wine appreciation to another level.
Care & Cleaning:
- Minimum 24% Lead Crystal
- Designed for Shiraz
- Presented as a set of two glasses
- 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.
