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.

Best Price on Riedel Sommeliers Glasses
I was shopping around for these expensive wine glasses. And then by accident and search found iwa. They do have the best price and the web page is easy to navigate around. Very fast service and they answer there phones and email fast. I would definitely look at there site when shopping the next time around.
I have been consistently impressed with IWA service and products. I have bought many Riedel stems over the years, have never received a broken one, have always received them ontime, and have no problem at all dealing with IWA. The prices are excellent, as is the selection. Bravo!
