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.

Zin Glasses

by

One of the few wine glasses designed for Zin.

Use daily!

Most of the ‘universal’ glass shapes favor bold red wines, and I accidentally discovered this makes a better universal glass for me. I drink a lot of whites, which taste much better in these glasses, and the same goes for lighter reds. I like how sculptural these glasses are, with wave ring patterns – so pretty!

The glass makes the wine.

Riesling never tasted better! It hits every part of your tongue that it should and seems to bring more depth to the wine. Be careful only buying 1 set, you may wish you bought more than 2 stems.

Good everyday glass

I'm not sure these are necessary as designated Riesling glasses. They work for various white wines.

OK

These were OK. I thought they would be more elegant and lightweight. Feel like I could have purchased these at a store nearby instead of buying them through the web and pay for shipping.
