The famous world wine advocate Robert M Parker says about Riedl Glass: '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.'
Or, what you can read in the TIME Magazine: 'The Riedel family has never stamped its name on a single bottle of wine. But over the past 50 years, this Austrian clan of master glassmakers has done more to enhance the oenophile's pleasure than almost any winemaking dynasty'.
Claus Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. He is thus the inventor of the functional wine glass.
We would suggest you check some of the stores that sell Riedl glasses - in case you are a true wine connaisseur, this is the right glasses to get. Do not worry about transport - most of the shops will ship your merchandise back home.
