VINUM (1986) is Riedel's basic stemmed series. This series was created by Georg J. Riedel, based on the Sommeliers range, in order to make Riedel varietal-specific glassware more accessible to the general consumer.

Sparkling wines and champagnes pose a challenge: how do you maintain the bubble? The solution lies at the bottom of each Vinum Prestige Cuvee Flute. Etched into each is a small dot, the purpose of which is to provide a slightly abraded surface that serves to generate a continuous stream of bubbles and prevent the champagne from going flat in the glass.

Designed to highlight the bouquet of champagne, this light and well-balanced glass accentuates the complexity and richness of vintage champagnes and prestige cuvees. The magic of this glass is its ability to highlight the full spectrum of aromas and flavors offered by fine champagnes and sparkling wines, while preserving their elegant effervescence.

About Riedel

GRAPE VARIETY SPECIFIC - RIEDEL'S BENCHMARK SINCE 1986, LEAD CRYSTAL, MACHINE-BLOWN IN BAVARIA/GERMANY

Vinum has had a permanent impact on the globe's wine glass culture. These glasses have proved to consumers and restaurateurs that the pleasure of consuming wine starts with the glass. The Vinum collection, developed by Georg Riedel on the principle that the content commands the shape, is the "Vitrum-Vinothek" for every day use.

CAUTION: these products are grape-varietal specific. Using them correctly will prove they are not simply glasses, but tools for wine enjoyment.

VINUM (1986) is Riedel's basic stemmed series. This series was created by Georg J. Riedel, based on the Sommeliers range, in order to make Riedel varietal-specific glassware more accessible to the general consumer.

The search for the perfect Sauvignon Blanc glass has taken Riedel to the four corners of the globe, has involved hundreds of tasters, and has become his largest ever search for the optimum glass shape.

A Riedel 'Sauvignon Blanc workshop' was held, in December 1997, at the Carmel Winery to illustrate the affects of the glass on wine. It became apparent that the existing Vinum Sauvignon Blanc glass, while it enhanced the grape variety well, was being out-performed by the Ouverture White Wine glass. This result led Georg J. Riedel to hold tastings in Australia and New Zealand where the findings were similar, with the same glasses winning each time.

Riedel developed prototypes to incorporate the shapes of the winning trio and, to his great satisfaction, at workshops in Bordeaux and Austria, the newly developed shapes worked better. The new Riedel Sauvignon Blanc glass is suitable for all styles of Sauvignon Blanc, from the grassy, mineral wines of the Loire to the oak-aged, honeyed blends from Bordeaux. The tall, slim glass offers freshness and intensity on the nose, a harmonious palate, with an excellent balance of fruit and acidity, and a minerally finish.

All Riedel glasses are dishwasher safe.
