Welcome To Riedel
'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.' (Quote: Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate) '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'. (Quote: Time Magazine) 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. Make a journey through our world of glasses and senses.
Riedel's Performance Collection
The ultimate loudspeaker for fine wine
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 flavor 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.The new bowl shapes in Performance, when combined with the optic effect, deliver ultimate wine enjoyment, making Performance the new essential ‘must-have’ wine glass collection.

I love the shape of this burgundy glass. Thats the whole reason why I bought it in the first place. It also feels great in the hand. Many people have stated that this glass is to fragile but I disagree. Its very thin, but still feels sturdy. Its probably my favorite glass to swirl.
With a very elegant wine like pinot noir (or any other wine for that matter), you want a glass that you can enhance the nose of a wine. Something that can consecrate all of the aromas of that glass into your nose for you to enjoy. But for some reason this glass does not do a good job of this. I don't know the reason why, but this glass seems to weaken the nose to the point where you can hardly smell what you are tasting. I noticed this with over a dozen bottles of wines, and could see a tremendous difference when I transferred what I was drinking from this glass to any other wine glass that I own.
DO NOT BUY THIS GLASS. Although I love the look and feel of this glass, it is a terrible vessel for tasting wine. A wine glasses sole purpose is to enhance your wine tasting experience. Otherwise we would all drink wine out of red solo cups. Due to this fact there is no reason to spend $50 (or what ever the current price is) on this glass when you could get the same experience out of any other container.
No interior padding and the items were shipped as if they were taken from a shelf in a department store, with a “fragile” sticker attached (like that would protect it).
Package arrived fine and intact (thankfully).
I’m not sure why persons are complaining about the weight and quality of these glasses..... The lighter the glass, the easier it is to swirl! Period! These, needless to say are perfect for swirling and yes, you can swirl champagne! Shape is perfect for nosing and also allows for the perfect amount of aeration.
With regards to pricing, my opinion is they should cost at least $10 - $15 less.
Overall, if you can afford it/ don’t mind the price, by all means; go ahead and spoil yourself. I will surely be drinking my favourite champagne out of these ;)
They are also a delight to hold and look at. So thin and yet it doesn't feel too delicate. And they are actually a lot cheaper than some other varietal glasses. Because we drink Pinot more than any other varietal, I feel great about this purchase.
