The origin of blown glassware dates back 2000 years. The Romans were the first to use this technique. At RIEDEL, in Kufstein, we produce hand-made glass. Each hand-made, mouth-blown item is individually crafted by our Austrian master glassmakers. The expertise of these craftsmen guarantees that the quality of each glass meets the high standard for which our brand is known. Because of the hand-crafting, small tolerances in the size and weight of each glass, tiny bubbles/ imperfections and slight surface variations are a feature and an acceptable part of the process.
