Quality glassware for any culinary style and budget.
For any hotel, bar, café, or restaurant, a key measure of your establishment's quality is the drinks you serve and how you present them. That said, finding the right glasses can be tricky; you have to consider precisely what glasses you need, their cost, and their suitability for your working environment, and you want to get all this right without compromising on quality.
We recognize that every establishment has different needs; some have space to accommodate a high volume of glasses, while others operate in tight areas requiring efficient storage. Some hotels may have an extensive budget that they can use to purchase premium RIEDEL glassware items, while some independently run bars and restaurants may be running on a tighter budget and need glasses that deliver quality without making them break the bank.
At RIEDEL, we provide a variety of glassware that's suitable for whatever your establishment's needs may be. Join us as we break down the importance of carefully selecting what glassware you purchase, plus our various on-premise glassware offerings that will help you raise your establishment's tables to the next level.
When selecting glassware, it is essential to tailor the RIEDEL glasses you choose to your setup and culinary offerings. For example, if you run a specialist wine bar or a fine-dining restaurant, we'd recommend you consider our RIEDEL Grape Varietal Specific glassware. While this means investing in a wide variety of glasses that will require more storage space and expertise from your staff, you receive glassware that brings out the very best in your wines. In contrast, a universal approach may work better for you if you own a casual dining restaurant and want to prioritize space, efficiency, and simplicity. In this instance, our RIEDEL Wine Friendly glasses are ideal for anyone looking for glassware that can impress with a range of wines rather than one varietal, all while retaining the famous mark of quality that comes with RIEDEL glassware.
As mentioned, you also want glassware matching the food you serve. If you run a seafood restaurant, you will likely require more white wine glasses to pair alongside the dishes on your menu. If, however, you run a steakhouse, you're more likely to receive a lot of full-bodied red wine orders, so our extensive list of red wine glasses will be more relevant to you. In each of these instances, identifying the beverages that pair best with the food you serve, along with the appropriate RIEDEL glass, will allow you to be as efficient as possible when ordering from our on-premise selection.
Ultimately, you're free to choose whichever RIEDEL on-premise glassware you desire for your establishment. However, specific collections may be better suited to your business depending on your working environment and the type of service you offer. With that in mind, this section aims to help you to pick out the RIEDEL on-premise glassware that best complements your establishment's attributes.
There was a time when machine-made items, while quicker and more cost-effective to make than handmade items, couldn't come close in terms of overall quality. However, thanks to the rapid advancement of modern glassmaking technology, that gap has narrowed considerably over recent years to the extent that one of our signature handmade collections, RIEDEL Superleggero, has this year been reimagined and rereleased as a premium machine-made collection.
Featuring classic collections such as RIEDEL Veloce, our premium machine-made glassware offerings are perfect for establishments looking for the highest quality of varietal-specific glassware without paying handmade glassware prices. Of all our premium machine-made wine glass collections, the current most popular series with RIEDEL hospitality customers are:
Whichever premium machine-made RIEDEL wine glass collection you opt for, you'll get a series designed to deliver the best of a particular grape or wine style's qualities, both on the nose and the palate. If your establishment serves a wine not explicitly referenced by any of our Grape Varietal Specific Glasses, you can find the best glass for it using our online wine glass guide.
