Riedel wine glasses have a deserved reputation for making the best of the wine you put into them. The Riedel range is expansive, being made up of different glasses for different wines. The original Herr Riedel (this is an Austrian company) developed his glasses by making lots of prototypes, and asking the key producers of each wine type to taste their own wine from each, and say which they thought presented the wine to its best advantage.
While it might seem extravagant to have a different glass for each variety of wine you drink, the whole point of drinking is to enjoy the wine. Why not enjoy it to the full?
Riedel’s Sommelier glasses are hand blown, the glass is very fine but surprisingly robust. The designs, while elegant and beautiful, are remarkably functional — a design exemplar.
