Celebrating Riedel Sommeliers Glass Collection 40th Anniversary!

"My first thoughts about a dedicated glass for Syrah date from a visit I made to the Guigal family in 1992", says Georg Riedel. "Until that time we had always suggested our Burgundy glasses as being best suited for Syrah. But faced with wines of such magnificence I began to think that perhaps we could find a superior alternative."

The Syrah variety was first planted in the Northern Rhône region by the Romans. It produces deeply pigmented, well-structured wines with excellent ageing potential.

The glass was developed between 1993 and 1995 following tastings in the major Syrah-growing regions, with many influential winemakers kindly contributing their views. It is shaped to deliver the classic Syrah aromas of toast and black olives. On the palate, it brings out the wine's silky, velvety structure and balanced flavours. The tannins melt into the fruit, appearing sweet rather than acerbic on the back palate.

Recommended for: Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Grenache, Hermitage red, Mourvèdre, Shiraz, Syrah.

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.
