The Riedel Wine Glass Company is a family run company that dates back over 300 years, and has enjoyed immense success for their quality glassware. For eleven generations the Riedel Wine Glass Company has been continually producing quality wine glasses intended to last a lifetime, however it was not until Claus Riedel that the company became world-famous due to his genius achievements concerning the shape of the wine glass. Every wine connoisseur knows that the shape of the wine glass is most important since the shape changes the taste, character, aftertaste, etc. of the wine. Claus Riedel was the first person in the history of glass to invent such a functional wine glass, forever changing the world of glass by creating the first ever stemware designed specifically based on the character of wine over thirty years ago when his masterpiece line, Sommeliers, was introduced. Robert M. Parker, Jr. from the Wine Advocate once stated that “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.” The Riedel Wine Glass Company certainly create small masterpieces with each wine glass invented, creating a true zest for life, a lifestyle and a piece of glassware to cherish your whole life once you taste the difference the glass makes. At the Riedel Wine Glass Company you can purchase glasses for red, white and sparkling wine as well as decanters and much more.
