Riedel Veritas Viognier/Chardonnay Set of 2 #17027
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
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.

This is dramatic stemware that makes quite a splash in table settings! Great for white wine / chardonnay drinkers, it is high stemmed and stunning. I absolutely adore these glasses, well worth the price!

I spotted these when tasting in the Oregon wine country, and almost every tasting room was using them. They are so delicate and elegant, augmenting the wine to perfection. When I saw IWA was carrying them, I had to get a set for home. Now I can bring the tasting room to my dining table!
