Veritas New World Shiraz Set of 2 (P/N 6449/30). Veritas stemware represents the next generation of Riedel stemware. Using the most advanced glassmaking technology, Veritas includes Riedel's varetal-specific bowls that enhance the taste and bouquet of wine.



Veritas is 15% taller than Vinum but 25% lighter and finer. According to Riedel, these glasses are "dishwasher safe, break resistant and suitable for long-term daily use at home." Visually stunning, super-thin and well-balanced, these glasses are a delight to hold..

What makes Riedel stemware unique 



How does the quality of Riedel's new lead-free crystal compare to its 24% lead crystal glass?

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.

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.
