Handmade by only the top master glassblowers in the finest lead crystal. Famed for their vibrant pink color and long, stick-like legs, the Flamingo is an immediately recognised bird. Equally distinctive is Riedel's new Flamingo decanter - though it's not at all pink. Flamingo has a broad, bulb-shaped base and an exaggerated long and slender neck reminiscent of the legs of the bird for which it was named. The extended neck has a lip that shears off at an acute angle and both characteristics provide an easier pour. The base thoughtfully features a very deep punt that accommodates the entire thumb, while allowing the remaining fingers to securely cradle the outside of the decanter. This design provides perfect stability and control when pouring, but also catches sediment and reinforces the strength of the decanter. The Flamingo holds a standard 750ml bottle of wine. And for those who prefer their Flamingoes pink, Riedel suggests a nice bottle of Rose.

26 oz.

"I prefer to decant wines, both young and old. It is a sign of respect for old wines and a sign of confidence in young wines.

Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wines' clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time.

Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging."

- Georg Riedel

Riedel, The Wine Glass Company

"It takes a great deal of efforts for a talented wine-maker to produce a good wine. These efforts can be ruined in no time if the wine is not served properly. The quality of the glass plays a crucial role here and Riedel produces the largest range of high quality glasses, specifically fine-tuned to fit the predominant wine varietals of the planet. Riedel makes it possible to fully appreciate all the nuances of aromas and tastes from the best wines of the world." -Michel Bettane

Varietal Specific Designs

The Riedel glass designs are based on the exceptional characteristics of each grape variety, which in turn determines the shape, size and rim diameter of the bowl. The latest machine blown technology, in conjunction with the seamless pulled stem, offers a special design feature "architecture", which creates an indent in the bottom of the bowl, reflecting the light and adding another dimension to the lively color of wine.

Crystal Classics is one of the largest independent retailers of Riedel glasses in the U.S.
