MACHINE-MADE & GRAPE VARIETAL SPECIFIC

RIEDEL VERITAS RESTAURANT

DELICATE TO TOUCH, DURABLE TO USE

In 2014, Georg Riedel challenged the Chief Engineer of his Weiden factory, Franz Schmid, and his world class technicians to execute the world’s finest and lightest machine blown glasses. The Weiden factory, located in Bavaria Germany and one of four manufacturing plants owned by RIEDEL Crystal, was briefed that the new range should not only be visually stunning and a delight to hold, but also price competitive against handmade products from low-cost manufacturers. The technicians accomplished their task with excellence using the very latest manufacturing techniques, creating a wine glass collection for the 21st century.

The spectacular result is RIEDEL Veritas: taller, lighter and finer than RIEDEL's classic series Vinum, dishwasher safe, break resistant, and suitable for frequent use. Manufactured in crystal glass, the RIEDEL Veritas series draws on 60 years of wine experience and expertise. As well as offering traditional shapes for Cabernet Sauvignon, Oaked Chardonnay, Riesling and Viogner, the series also presents two glasses for both Syrah and for Pinot Noir, for either Old World or New World styles, and their revolutionary Champagne Wine Glass, created by Maximilian J. Riedel.

Riedel Veritas combines the charm of a handmade glass with the consistent accuracy only a machine made glass can achieve.
