Product Description

THE RIEDEL MARK OF QUALITY - Working with the Italian Sommelier association A.I.S. (Associazione Italiana Sommeliers) Claus Riedel unveiled the world’s first gourmet glass series in Orvieto in 1973. The series comprised 10 sizes. The world of wine has changed radically since then. Today, there are regions and continents producing wine which did not exist or were unknown at the time. Sommeliers has developed into a comprehensive, state-of-the-art "Vitrum-Vinothek". As a result of global demand, Sommeliers now represents the benchmark among wine glasses and is the most successful hand-made glass series in the world. Every glass is an individual piece, with the upper part blown into shape and the stem and base shaped by hand using methods that were developed around the time of Christ's birth. Our glass makers contribute the talent, skill and care required to give the Sommeliers series the hand-crafted finish that our customers expect.
This glass was described by Decanter magazine as "The finest Burgundy glass of all time, suitable for both young and old Burgundies." Its shape, developed in 1958, represented a quantum leap in terms of wine glass design - and has earned it a place in the permanent display of the New York Museum of Modern Art. This 'beautiful monster' of a glass can take apart a lesser wine, mercilessly showing up its weaknesses. But a great wine - a top-class Burgundy, Barolo or Barbaresco - will be revealed in all its glory. The large bowl allows the bouquet to develop to the full, while the slightly flared top lip maximises the fruit flavours by directing a precise flow onto the front palate. Certain wines and grape varieties require this type of controlled delivery. By ensuring that the fruit is highlighted while using the marked acidity of the wine to keep the flavours in balance, this is a glass that produces a superbly three-dimensional 'taste picture'.
