RIEDEL CRYSTAL is a 300 year-old family owned company known for its creation and development of varietal-specific stemware. RIEDEL CRYSTAL is the first in history to recognize that the taste of a beverage is affected by the shape of the vessel from which it is consumed, and has been recognized for its revolutionary designs complementing alcoholic beverages and other drinks.
VINUM (1986) became the first machinemade glass in history to be based on the characteristics of grape varietals. VINUM was not developed on a drawing board, but based on the performance in tasting work shops where the content commands the shape. The pleasure of enjoying fine wine starts with the right glass. VINUM is executed in fine crystal, machineblown in Bavaria, Germany.
