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.

Worth the price
Gorgeous glass, but quite tall! It didn't fit in any of my cupboards, so I had to put the box on top of my kitchen cabinets. I need to get a better stemware rack I think! I appreciate Riedel's attention to detail with their boxes, it has been handy for storing the glasses.
