Welcome To Riedel
The finest glasses for both technical and hedonistic purposes are those made by Riedel. The effect of these glasses on fine wine is profound. I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make'. (Quote: Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate)
The Riedel family has never stamped its name on a single bottle of wine. But over the past 50 years, this Austrian clan of master glassmakers has done more to enhance the oenophile's pleasure than almost any winemaking dynasty'. (Quote: Time Magazine)
Claus Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. He is thus the inventor of the functional wine glass. Make a journey through Riedel's world of glasses and senses.

VINUM was not developed on a drawing board, but in tasting workshops, based on performance, where the content commands the shape. The pleasure of enjoying fine wine starts with the right glass.
Riedel's Vinum Collection
2016 is a year of anniversaries for Riedel. The company is celebrating being in business for 260 years while Vinum - the company's most successful glassware range - is turning thirty. 1986 was not just an important year for Riedel but for all wine lovers around the world. The launch of the machine-made Vinum glass collection by Riedel Glas fundamentally changed the drinking glass culture. In 1973, Claus J. Riedel, the ninth generation of the family-run company, introduced a winefriendly, handcrafted and hand blown range of glasses. The 'Sommeliers' range is now world famous. In 1986, his son, Georg J. Riedel, presented a further innovation which would become even more significant: the first varietal-specific machine-made glass in history – Vinum!
The classic machine-made cocktail glass of the established glass collection Vinum is the essential glassware for every home bar. This shape is a classic with a unique style all its own. Perfect for presentation of sparkling wines and an alternative to the standard cocktail glass. Vinum glasses have proved to consumers and restaurateurs that the pleasure of consuming wine starts with the glass. All RIEDEL glasses are dishwasher safe.
