What Makes Riedel Wine Glasses So Special?


Riedel wine glasses are hand made by highly skilled artisans.  Some of the glasses are even hand blown, either in their entirety or partially.  Wow, that's a lot work that goes into each and every wine glass.

In addition to the attention to detail that is put into each glass, Riedel makes each glass a specific size and shape to enhance the flavor and aroma of the wine you are drinking according to the variety of grape that is used to make the wine.

When I first heard about this, I thought "Baloney!"  I thought the guy in the shop was having me on.  Turns out he was not pulling my leg or making fun of my inexperience as a wine drinker.  There really is a scientific method that they use to make sure that the wine glasses are constructed in such a way as to make sure that the wine lands in the correct spot on your taste buds to ensure the optimal taste of the wine.

So red wine glasses are made in a different shape than a white wine glass, which is a different shape than a champagne glass.  And not just for the purpose of aeration, but also to have your head and taste buds in the correct position to get the most aroma and flavor from a particular type of wine.
