The right wine glasses make the wine just taste better.
Riedel, the brand credited with revolutionizing glassware for the enjoyment of wine, creating different shapes of wine glass that are truly suitable by type of wine. I visited the Riedel Showroom during Tabletop Market Week to see the beautiful new glasses from Reidel.
I couldn’t believe my eye on such beautiful wine glasses and vessels I was seeing as soon as I walked through the door. Once I was greeted, I leaned the history of the Riedel and how the brand was the first in history to recognize that the taste and aroma of a beverage is affected by the shape of the vessel from which it is consumed, and has been recognized for its revolutionary designs complementing alcoholic beverages and other drinks.
I was able to check out some of the timeless classics from Riedel, but also some new favorites including the Riedel Superleggero Machine-Made Collection. These glasses were reimagined from the 2015 hand-blown series, introducing the largest, thinnest, and lightest glasses from Riedel’s proprietary machine-made technology. Riedel’s precision comes to life in its consistent quality, producing glasses that are fine-tuned instruments, specifically shaped to enhance your wine enjoyment. The collection features eight varietal-specific glasses, including Bordeaux Grand Cru, Burgundy Grand Cru, Hermitage/Syrah, Champagne, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and a Spirits Glass. They were absolutely stunning.
The next time I need to find a certain type of wine glass, I certainly know who I will go to. Definitely an amazing gift for the holidays!
