Riedel - Content Commands Shape

The Riedel family has been making quality crystal in the heart of Europe for the last 250 years and 11 generations. However, it was only more recently (late 1950’s) that Claus Riedel (9th Riedel generation) changed the world of wine forever with his revolutionary discovery that the glass’ shape could actually translate the bouquet, texture, flavor, and finish of wine to the human senses for maximum enjoyment. Riedel further developed the principle that content commands shape to produce varietal specific stemware, for the ultimate enhancement of any type of wine. Today, Riedel is recognized the world over for designing and producing the highest quality glasses and decanters for the pure enjoyment of wine and spirits. Whether you are a critical wine connoisseur, a restaurateur, or a general wine enthusiast, Riedel has developed a series to fit your glassware needs and budget.
