The shape and size of the glass dramatically influences your enjoyment of wine.
Claus J. Riedel was the world's first person to recognise that the flavour of wine and spirits was greatly influenced by the shape of the glass. Based on this understanding, Riedel revolutionised the world of wine and has launched dozens of collections to enhance the enjoyment of wine and spirits for millions of people around the world.
In the late 1950s, Riedel started to produce glasses which at that time were a design revolution. Thin-blown, unadorned, reducing the design to its essence: Bowl, stem, base. Working with experienced tasters, Riedel discovered that wine enjoyed from his glasses showed more depth and better balance than when served in other glasses.
You don’t need to be a wine writer, a wine maker or an expert to taste the difference that a Riedel glass can make.
"The Riedel family has never stamped its name on a single bottle of wine. But over the past 50 years, this Austrian clan of master glassmakers has done more to enhance the oenophile's pleasure than almost any winemaking dynasty". -- TIME Magazine
