Description

Sip in style with this set of four Riedel wine glasses. Riedel’s wine collection was created for customers who feel that plain stemware on a well laid table is just not decorative enough. It combines a light catching, decorative stem and Vinum’s most popular bowl shapes. Each glass is expertly balanced and very sturdy. The “Wine” collection is appropriate for everyday use and is ideal for all users who are expanding their wine palate with exploration of many wines from many regions of the world. With this fine collection of glasses, Riedel achieves what the essence of wine and other beverage drinking is all about: enjoyment. Perfect for everyday use, the four Pinot/Nebbiolo glasses are made by the world-renowned German wineglass maker Riedel Crystal and are recommended for your favorite wines.

Though glasses shaped and sized for different types of wine seem commonplace today, when Riedel introduced this idea in 1961, it was revolutionary. Since then Riedel has continued fine-tuning glasses to bring out the best characteristics in wines and spirits. Varying bowls’ shapes and sizes affects the position of the head when sipping and where wine first contacts the tongue’s various taste zones. This set of four glasses arrives boxed and makes an excellent gift.

8-3/4″ H, with a 24.75 ounce capacity
Crafted from premium lead-free glass, Riedel’s Wine Series is an attractive and functional line of wine glasses, featuring the most popular bowl shapes of the more expensive Vinum collection. The glasses are machine-made in Europe by renowned glassmakers and feature a faceted stem with tiered decorations at the top and base. The thin rims are cut and polished so that wine flows well onto the tongue, and the bowl shapes emphasize bouquet. This set of four Pinot/Nebbiolo glasses is ideal for full-bodied red wines with high acidity and moderate tannins, and the large bowl is a fitting shape for the wine’s complex aroma. Also recommended for serving Barbaresco, Barbera, Burgundy, and Gamay, each glass stands a striking 8-3/8 inches high and holds 24-3/4 ounces at full capacity. –Emily Bedard
