It is suitable for everyday use or to use at a wine tasting. Functional and aesthetically pleasing this range is one of our most requested. It was the first grape specific glass in history!
Riedel Veritas series
If you're looking for a newer, 'upgraded' version of the highly popular Vinum range, then Veritas is for you. Veritas features the same high-quality crystal glass as Vinum, and it's becoming very popular with both consumers and restaurateurs around the world. It's suitable for everyday use and during dinner and tastings; it's both functional and aesthetically pleasing!
Riedel Performance series
If you're looking for an eye-catching, never seen glassware range, then Riedel Performance is the one for you! As standard, it features the same high-quality crystal glass as other Riedel ranges, but it also features a unique optic impact. This adds a pleasing visual aspect to the bowl and increases the inner surface area, allowing the wine to open up and fully show every aroma and subtle nuance. Riedel Performance is unique, functional and aesthetically pleasing!
Riedel O Range
Stemless wine glasses are a modern and trendy addition to the glassware world. This range is relatively new but very popular with consumers. The O series is an excellent alternative to the traditional stemmed glass design. It makes for a great gift or wedding favour. Stemless wine tumblers are also suitable for serving mixers, soft drinks and water and perfectly fit every dishwasher. The O bowl size is based on the benchmark shapes from the Riedel Vinum series.
Released in 2020, the Riedel Winewings is a glass collection that perhaps is not the most aesthetically pleasing but is striking in its design and functionality, taking the wines aromas and flavours on a flight. Each glass within the range features a flat and stretched bottom, with a wing-like shape to increase the surface area the wine is exposed to; this then increases the levels of evaporation and enables a greater intensity of aroma.
Riedel Stemless Wings
Following the release of the popular Riedel Winewings collection in 2020, the Riedel Stemless Wings has been created! This stemless creation perfectly complements the original stemmed series, featuring three stemless wine tumblers crafted by Georg Riedel: Riesling, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition, these three shapes have been redesigned to ensure they sit comfortably within the drinker's hand.
Riedel Ouverture series
The Ouverture series is ideal for everyday use. This is the starting glass for any Riedel collector; it is a Riedel beginner glass. It is aimed at users who appreciate reasonably priced wine, and you can use it for any grape variety. This range consists of ten different sizes, so it will be adequate for drinking wine, champagne, beer and spirits. These perfectly shaped wine glasses are also one of the most cost-effective ranges from Riedel.
This range is designed to show off wines full potential, giving it perfect surroundings in a well-designed, high-quality glass. The Riedel Vinum Extreme glasses were introduced in the millennium and since then have become a success. The large bowls and long stems are extremely popular with users. The large bowl allows the wine to breathe and intensifies the bouquet. The Vinum Extreme wine glasses/range are available in two sets, making them a lovely present for a special occasion or birthday.
