SOMMELIERS (1973)The introduction of the SOMMELIERS series in 1973 achieved worldwide recognition. A glass was born that turns a sip into a celebration - a wine’s best friend - fine-tuned to match the grape! We invite you to share this fascinating and unique experience. You don’t need to be a wine writer, a winemaker, or an expert to taste the difference that a RIEDEL glass can make.
This elegant, tulip-shaped glass with a slightly flared top shows off the character of white wines from more northerly regions (Mosel, Rheingau, Franken, Weinviertel) to the best possible advantage. These light, dry wines, combining high acidity with delicate fruit, make for hugely pleasurable drinking when served in this beautifully designed glass. Its unique 'acidity spoiler' (a gently curved lip around the rim) means that the tip of the tongue unconsciously curves up so that a stream of wine is delivered straight to the sweetness-sensitive taste receptors that are concentrated there. This has the effect of emphasising the fruit. Handmade and dishwasher safe.
