A Great All-Purpose Wine Glass
by Wim -
I recently purchased two 2-glass set of the Riedel Vinum Viognier/Chardonnay glasses. They arrived shortly with no damage. I originally had purchased 20 of these glasses, of which two had been broken by guests over the 15 years since purchase. I also have numerous other styles of Riedel glasses, which have their place, but have found that this style is almost perfect as an "all-purpose" glass. It has great balance, is easy to hold securely and comfortably, and has a tulip shaped bowl slightly closed in at the top to keep the aromas in, and focuses them to the nose while sipping. I particularly like it as a tasting glass because of its smaller size so that a small pour does not get lost in the bowl. Its smaller size also makes it easier to hand-wash without losing your grip on it. And it is a very elegant glass.
A good all around glass
by Everyday sipper
These work well as a nice basic glass and for Chardonnay, but for most white wines I actually prefer the Riedel Vinum Sauvignon Blanc.
Not worth the price. These are too heavy to be $25 per stem...will return or exchange for another product.
