Over the course of his 47-years working in his family business, 10th generation Georg Riedel has become the father of functional glassware.
Following 12 months of development, Georg debuts a series with a completely unique shape. Reminiscent of an aircraft wing, complete with winglets, RIEDEL Winewings was born!
RIEDEL Winewings is “brutally functional, taking the wine’s aromas and flavours on a flight,” Georg says. “I chose a flat and stretched bottom with a wing-like shape as it increases the surface area of the wine exposed to oxygen. This leads to greater levels of evaporation and enables a greater intensity of aroma.”
This innovative series is a symbolic shift in aesthetic for the RIEDEL brand, as it is a step away from his father’s original Sommeliers series shapes, and towards a new era of functional glassware.
