This week I have a guest blog from a company that we exclusively use here at Dry River when pouring our wine, Riedel. As wine critic, Robert M. Parker Jr. of The Wine Advocate wrote “The finest glasses for both technical and hedonistic purposes are those made by Riedel. The effect of these glasses on fine wine is profound. I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make.”
At Dry River, we truly believe that the high quality, variety specific crystal glassware enhances the wine drinking experience. Please watch the video tour below of the Riedel factory and showroom in Kufstein, Austria. For more information on Riedel glassware visit their website.
Some words from Riedel
Celebrating 260 years in 2016, the Riedel brand is known for innovation and design. The Riedel family revolutionised the industry with their discovery that the shape and size of your glass affects your perception of aroma and flavour.
9th generation Claus Riedel’s masterpiece series Sommeliers was the first ever stemware line to provide wine drinkers with an instrument designed to enhance wine enjoyment. His creation of “wine friendly” stemware was the beginning of 40 years’ research and development for the Riedels, and led to the groundbreaking introduction of grape-varietal-specific glassware by 10th generation Georg Riedel. Today, all of Riedel’s iconic varietal glassware is developed through tasting workshops with winemakers and experts, where the design is determined by sensory perception.
With continued investment in new technology and a forward-seeking perspective led by 11th generation Maximilian Riedel, the brand continues to set the benchmark for modern glassware. Riedel is widely respected as the world’s most technical and advanced glassware, and is the number one choice for discerning wine connoisseurs, hospitality professionals, and consumers.
