Riedel Veritas Oaked Chardonnay Set of 2 (P/N 6449/97). 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.

Beautiful but fragile

by -

These glasses are really stunning to look at and are a pleasure to hold; thin, light, and well proportioned. However, I've already had one shatter in my hand as I was washing it, which is disappointing especially since the claim is that they are "break resistant." While I've safely put Vinum series glasses in the dishwasher, I don't think I'll even attempt to do so with the Veritas. I am however, ordering a replacement set because I do like the glasses.

Lovely

This is the perfect glass! It is delicate and thin with a narrow perched stem and high quality construction. I can't believe these are machine made! Absolutely stunning.
