THE LIGHTNESS OF PLEASURE
Looks and feels handmade! This glass collection is, in fact, produced by machine.
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 wine’s full aromas.
RIEDEL Veloce is an impressive development based on state-of-the-art technology. The glass is taller than the RIEDEL Extreme collection and has a thinner stem and finer bowls. A specially developed machine, at RIEDEL’s Weiden factory, enables us 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.
The weight of RIEDEL Veloce is remarkable and has been reduced considerably from that of the Extreme collection. The perfect balance and feel which suggests a handmade glass.
Maximilian Riedel selected the Italian name "Veloce", meaning "fast", in reference to the modern machine technology that makes it possible to bring a glass that is handmade, in so many aspects, onto the machine and produce it quickly and in large quantities. An homage to technology, as glassmaking by hand has become a declining craft.
