Riedel recently began the process of converting all of its glassware from lead to lead-free glass crystal, and eventually all of Riedel's glassware will be lead-free. We compared lead vs the lead-free (Sommelier Bordeaux Grand Cru glasses side by side, and found it difficult to distinguish between the glasses. It seemed like the lead-free glasses had thinner stems and rims, while the 24% lead glasses seemed slightly heaver in the hand. There was no discernable difference in the balance, clarity or construction of the glasses.
Ratings & Reviews
Reidel O Cabernet/Merlot
Wish they were a little narrower. A bit hard to hold for a small hand.
Love this glass!
It's so easy to set the table with these glasses, because I don't need to worry about breakage, and they fit easily in low cupboards. The size is just right to hold, and I feel comfortable taking them outside and on picnics. I always feel nervous bringing stemware to outdoor concerts, for fear of them falling over or breaking, but I don't need to worry about that with Riedel O. They snuggle into grass or on benches without spilling.
I miss the stem.

Got these glasses as a gift and they are good. Riedel makes a great quality glass. I just enjoy a good stemmed glass when drinking wine. Very sturdy though.
