There is only one glass-maker who puts as much passion into developing the
finest tools to capture wine's full potential as do its winemakers -
Riedel. Their mission is to provide precision tools in the service of wine
so that each wine's finest elements are highlighted by the glass.
Riedel has been known for more than four decades for designing the most
finely-tuned instruments for every level of wine sophistication as well as
the finest wine glasses in all price categories.
While a glass cannot alter a fine wine or spirit, it can dramatically alter
our perception of it. Riedel offer a broad selection of glasses for each
wine variety. According to Riedel, "Better wine is being produced today by
more people in more places than ever before in history, with world-class
wine being made by literally thousands of wine-makers.
Wine enthusiasts go to great lengths to discover these wines, buy them in
sound condition, store them properly, serve them at the correct temperature
and in surroundings that enhance them. Shouldn't they also drink them from
glasses that bring out their maximum beauty?
In his highly regarded wine journal, Robert M. Parker Jr of The Wine
Advocate says, "The finest glasses for both technical and hedonistic
purposes are those made by the Riedel company. The effect of these glasses
is profound. I cannot emphasise enough what a difference they make."
