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.

Have bought multiple sets of these now and highly recommend them. Having the proper stemware makes a huge difference when drinking a nice bottle of red. This value pack offers two of these glasses at the price of one. Beware, they are fragile. Handle gently when washing.
