"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." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate

Perhaps Riedel's crowning achievement in the modern era is the creation of the first machine-made grape variety-specific glassware. The evolution from mouth-blowing meant dramatically lower production costs, and suddenly high quality stem-ware was available at reasonable prices. Dishwasher safe too!

History & Origins of Riedel

Eleven Generations of Riedel
Originally established in Bohemia in 1756 by Franz Riedel, and dramatically expanded by his son in law Josef Riedel during the 1800s. Passed down through the generations, and now managed by Georg Riedel and Maximilien. Riedel, 10th and 11th generations of the Riedel dynasty.

George & Maximilien Riedel - 10th & 11th Generation
Claus Josef Riedel was among the first glassware experts in history to recognise that taste of wine is affected by the shape of the glass it is served in. He broke away from the tradition of heavy thick glass designs of the time, and spent 16 years studying the physics of wine delivery from glass to the mouth, creating the first range of variety-specific stemware in 1961.
