Fatto A Mano
HANDMADE & GRAPE VARIETAL SPECIFIC
Meaning handmade in Italian, Fatto a Mano is RIEDEL's stunningly vibrant collection, which turns a sip of wine into a colourful celebration.
Introduced in 2017, Fatto a Mano combines the sophistication of handmade glass, in the style of the ancient Venetian tradition, with the most modern manufacturing technology. In a first for RIEDEL, Fatto a Mano features a stem and base blown by hand with a bowl blown by machine, bringing together the best of both worlds with the stunning addition of slender coloured stems.
The execution of this new process was made possible by significant quality improvements in the RIEDEL glass factory in Weiden, Bavaria, where RIEDEL’s talented Tyrolean glassmakers discovered how to build the multi-coloured stems by hand and how to fuse the bowl to the coloured stem during the hot stage.
The series includes six shapes, which can be purchased in an individual gift box or in a box of six with mixed colours (white, black, yellow, red, green, blue). The Champagne Wine Glass is also available in pink.
The Fatto a Mano collection now includes four stunning decanters to compliment the series. These four classic RIEDEL pieces have been reiterated with optical blown glass and a black-white-black ornamental line that enhances their dynamic designs. The art of optically blown glass originated in Venice, the cradle of the most superior glassblowing techniques, with few glass blowers still proficient in this method.
The Fatto a Mano series is produced in lead-free crystal glass. All RIEDEL glassware is dishwasher safe.
