The Riedel connoisseur will be surpirised to find that this new glass series has something missing - there is no stem or base. Riedel 'O' is the new innovative take on the wine tumbler. In short: 'O' is the ideal glass for every day use and for every occasion. It is fun, feels good to hold, looks trendy and it works!The designs of 'O' are based on the benchmark shapes of Riedel Vinum. For the first time in glass history the design parameters such as shape of tumbler, size and diameter of rim, have been fine tuned to enhance the world's most important grape varietals. 'O' is available as: Cabernet/Merlot, Pinot/Nebbiolo, Syrah/Shiraz, Chardonnay, Viognier/Chardonnay, and Riesling/Sauvignon. The tumbler, used for centuries as an all-round drinking vessel, is now turned into a sophisticated wine accessory. Maximilian Riedel has created something brand new with 'O' without losing sight of his 'roots'. 'O' is much more a successful addition for those who love an elegant, uncomplicated design that works.30 years ago Claus Riedel (9th Riedel generation) revolutionized the world of the wine glass when he changed functionality into design. His grandson Maximilian Riedel (11th generation) feels that now is the right time to offer a convenience product. A glass which is easy to use. It fits in every dishwasher, picnic basket, minibar or small kitchen. Broken stems are a thing of the past.

O is executed in non lead crystal, machine blown in Bavaria, Germany.

Varietal Specific Designs

"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

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.

"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
