Wine-lovers the world over understand that Riedel wine glasses are developed in different shapes and sizes, for specific grape varieties. Only such advanced machine production can guarantee such precise glass design language, in harmony with the respective profile of grape variety.
All new, yet Riedel fans might see a resemblance to the Extreme glass collection, the first machine-produced, diamond-shaped glasses (2000), created by Georg J. Riedel specifically for wines from the New World. The collection derived its name from the extreme angles of the diamond shape, giving the wine more space in the glass to bring out the wines full aromas. Recognizing the evolution of modern wines, the Riedel family has adapted the glass shapes for Cabernet Sauvignon and for Riesling, following an intensive new round of comparative tastings.
RIEDEL VELOCE is a new, impressive development based on state-of-the-art technology. The glass is taller than the EXTREME and has a thinner stem and finer bowls. A specially developed machine, at Riedels Weiden factory, enables Riedel to draw stems that are the equal of those made by hand by a master glassmaker. The base, with a diameter of 100 mm, is a new standard for large glass shapes and is the maximum that can be produced by machine.
Looks and feels handmade! This new glass collection is, in fact, produced by machine, using new, cutting-edge technologies and is a true precision tool.
