RIEDEL Sommeliers Vintage Port
The Port glass is perfect to highlight the rich fruit and sweetness characteristic of port.
During a series of tastings conducted in London and Austria, some of the world's greatest port experts selected this glass as the ideal shape. The glass combines all the positive characteristics established by research, emphasizing harmony and concentration of fruit.Sommeliers was the world’s first wine friendly glass collection and a design revolution created by Claus J. Riedel (9th generation). The range adheres to the Bauhaus design principle of form follows function, as Claus J. Riedel had discovered that certain wines showed more depth and better balance when enjoyed from certain shapes. Thin-blown and unadorned, Sommeliers was the beginning of RIEDEL's dominance of the global wine glass market.
