The size and shape of these Riedel Zinfandel/Riesling glasses command attention with their multi-functional nature. Perfect for Zinfandel, Chianti Classico and Sangiovese, as well as Riesling, Vouvray and Gruner Veltliner, these glasses sit proudly in the ever popular Riedel Vinum collection. Introduced in 1986, the Riedel Vinum line was the first machine-made series of glasses in history to be based exclusively on the characteristics of grape varietals. The Vinum series has had a strong and permanent impact on the wine glass culture around the globe. These glasses have proven to consumers and restauranteurs that the pleasure of consuming wines starts with the glass. Developed by 10th generation Georg Riedel on the principle that the contents commands the shape, Vinum is great for everyday use. These glasses are made with over 24% lead crystal.The Vinum collection from renowned Austrian glassmaker Riedel gives serious wine drinkers an extensive choice of moderately priced crystal, each glass designed especially to enhance a particular wine. Modest in size at 8-1/4 inches in height and with a capacity of 13 ounces, this glass is unusual in that it can be used for both a red Chianti and a white Riesling, or even a sparkling Vouvray. The set of two Vinum glasses makes a beautiful gift for a new couple, or will nicely augment an existing wine glass collection.
Though comprised of more than 24 percent lead crystal, which lends superb brilliance and clarity, Vinum glasses are affordable because they are machine-made. In fact, Vinum is the first machine-made line dedicated to Riedel’s philosophy of shaping and sizing a glass to suit the wine within. While dishwasher-safe, Vinum crystal is best washed by hand to prevent detergent residue that can affect wine taste. –Ann Bieri
