There is no more elegant bird than the Swan, so Riedel thought it only fitting that their new Swan Crystal Decanter should embody the same natural grace. The body of the Crystal Decanter mimics the gentle curvature of the form of a Swan, forming J shape with an exaggeratedly elongated straight neck that narrows to the elliptical lip.
Wine is simply poured into the wider opening of the Swan's tail (which also forms a natural handle for services) then effortlessly poured into the glass from the narrow neck. As fascinating to look at as it is functional to use, the Swan Crystal Decanter does the job of separating sediment from older wines, while allowing the younger ones to aerate and mature.

Georg Riedel: 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 wine several hours before it is served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging.

"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.
