Product details

The Riesling Grand Cru/Zinfandel glass is ideal for balancing the high acidity and residual sugar of both fruit-forward white and red wines. This versatile shape is the most adaptable white wine glass in the RIEDEL collection, and it works wonderfully for reds like Zinfandel too. It perfectly balances fresh characters and high mineral components, highlighting delightful fruit aromas.

Sommeliers was the world’s first wine-friendly glass collection, a revolutionary design by Claus J. Riedel (9th generation). Adhering to the Bauhaus principle of form follows function, Claus J. Riedel discovered that specific wines revealed more depth and balance when enjoyed from certain shapes. Thin-blown and elegantly simple, Sommeliers marked the start of RIEDEL's global prominence in the wine glass market.

Every piece is individually crafted by our master glassmakers, giving each glass a unique character. Due to the handcrafted nature of the process, small variations in size and weight, tiny bubbles, imperfections, or slight surface variations are a normal and charming part of the creation.

ABOUT RIEDEL

When developing a glass, RIEDEL's design ideas are not born on a drawing board, but shaped by trial and error with the help and support of the world's greatest palates. A person interested in wine is led by color, bouquet and taste, but often the glass is not considered as an instrument to convey the wine's message. Over the years, RIEDEL has acquired some interesting scientific explanations as to why the shape of a glass influences the bouquet and taste of alcoholic beverages. The first discovery was made while enjoying wine. The same wine displayed completely differently characteristics when served in a variety of glasses. The differences were so great that experienced connoisseurs were made to believe that they were tasting different wines. The grape variety is the key factor in determining the relationship between fruit, acidity, tannin and alcohol. As the next step, RIEDEL was able to create shapes in which the wine, vinified from specific grape varieties, seemed to improve. We started to recognize the complex role that size and shape play in conveying the message of a fine wine.
