250 YEARS AND 11 GENERATIONS

RIEDEL

A LEADER IN GLASSWARE

The Riedel brand revolutionised basic glassware when Claus J. Riedel, 9th generation, designed the first collection of wine-friendly stemware in 1974. He laid the groundwork for glassware that was designed first with purpose then with aesthetics. His masterpiece series “Sommeliers” set a precedent, designed specifically to enhance wine’s harmony. 

Georg J. Riedel, 10th generation, revolutionised his father’s research when he introduced Riedel Sensory Workshops as a method of testing their products. With the help of master sommeliers and winemakers, he introduced his very first grape varietal specific series Vinum in 1986, which works with wine's DNA to show more depth and better balance. 

Maximilian Riedel, 11th generation, took over as CEO in 2014. He has continued to drive the company forward with the introduction of the O Series, varietal-specific wine tumblers, and his imaginative series of snake decanters. Maximilian cemented the brand’s commitment to the hospitality industry with the introduction of the Restaurant portfolio, giving the on-premise sector access to the Riedel’s quality and philosophy at a lower price point.

Innovative and ever-evolving, Riedel continues to lead the charge on modern, functional glassware.

WHY SHAPE MATTERS

Grape varietal specific stemware features finely-tuned glass bowls consisting of 3 variables: shape, size and rim diameter. Grape varietal specific stemware has to translate the "message" of wine to the human senses.

Performance

2018

With three generations of research, development and experience in creating functional, grape varietal specific glassware, Georg and Maximilian Riedel challenged themselves to improve on what had gone before. The result is Performance – a technologically advanced and user-friendly collection of grape varietal specific glasses. Performance is the first Riedel wine glass series ever to feature bowls with a light optic effect. Detailed research by the Riedel family, aimed at improving the organoleptic wine experience, revealed that increasing the inner surface area of the glass had a positive impact on the perception of the bouquet and flavour of the wine. This was achieved through a unique optical effect, which not only adds a pleasing visual aspect to the bowl, but also increases the inner surface area, allowing the wine to open up and to fully show every aroma and subtle nuance.
