Riedel wine glasses for connoisseurs

Riedel doesn’t just make glassware for wine, they make wine glasses that translate the “message” of the wine to your senses. The shape, size and rim diameter of each glass bowl is designed to perfectly reflect and enhance each sip of wine. The bowl, stem and base of each wine glass is designed to work harmoniously together to heighten your pleasure. Riedel are renowned architects of premium wine glasses.

Which glasses are best?

Riedel recommends that you use stemmed wine glasses for fine dining and stemless glasses for casual dining. They also suggest that you invest the same amount of money on one single glass as you would on a good bottle of wine.

However, when you purchase Riedel wine glasses it’s important to understand that many of their glasses are grape-specific. This means that they are designed for one specific type of wine, unlocking even the most elusive characteristics of the wine for you to enjoy.

As a wine connoisseur, you should own more than one type of glass, because the balance, taste and bouquet of each wine is influenced by the shape of the glass bowl. In fact, you will experience your favourite wines completely differently, depending on the type of glass used. So whilst you can buy wine-friendly glasses from Riedel, to enhance your pleasure, wine enthusiasts invest in varietal-specific glasses.

Varietal-specific wine glasses

If you genuinely want to experience the authenticity of your wine, you need to invest in wine glasses that are varietal-specific. These include Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Bordeaux, Champagne, and more.

Grape varietal-specific glassware delivers the true quality and intensity of the wine’s aroma highlights the texture and feel of the wine on your tongue, balances the fruit, minerals, acid and bitter elements of the wine, and offers a harmonious and long-lasting aftertaste.
