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
Wines Score 2 to 3 Point Higher in Riedel Grand Cru Glasses
by W -
These large Bordeaux glasses do make a difference in how a top end or average Bordeaux wine will taste. I had part of a bottle of a top Bordeaux wine at dinner at some friends house in regular sized glasses for which I gave it a 93 score. I took about a third of the bottle back home. There I drank it out of one of these Riedel Grand Gru glasses and gave it a 96 score.

I broke one of my wife's favorite wineglasses, and of course it one of the more expensive ones. She told me to order a replacement from IWA so I ordered the Value Pack. The price very reasonable, so not only was I able to get the replacement, but I it came with a spare in case of any future "accidents"
Magnificent works of art.

Excellent wine glasses

These wine glasses are the best by far. We’ve been sampling wine for years and enjoy learning and experiencing different wines . Riedel crystal wine glasses are our preferred glass and we wouldn’t have it any other way .
