What makes Riedel stemware unique
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
Stemless glasses are everywhere these days, but a lot of them are heavy and clunky. These are both casual but still refined due to being very sheer rimmed and lightweight. Just the right size in the hand, not too wide. I also use these for juice or water.
These glasses are very stylish, have the touch and feel of great quality, are thin and light but still feel durable to the touch. Over all very satisfied.
I received a set of these as a gift, and secretly thought the stemless glass was just a marketing gimmick. But now I'm sold - they are so much more practical than traditional glasses. No accidental spills or breaks, easier to wash and store.

The glasses are a staple in our house and when one was broken, we had to replenish. The order and delivery service was great. I have no complaints only satisfaction!
