THE ART OF WINE DECANTING

DECANTERS

Riedel has been emphasising the importance of decanting for many years. This applies to all wines, be they red, white, young or mature – and even to champagne. International design awards and patents underscore the expertise developed by the company over the years in the field of decanters and their functionality.

In the case of red wines, wine from a decanter expresses a higher fruit content on the palate and tends to integrate and take the rough edge off tannins. We offer a huge selection of elegant machine-blown and extravagant hand-crafted decanters to honour good wines with the treatment that they deserve.

THE SMALL SEDUCER FROM THE HOUSE OF RIEDEL

RIEDEL MINI DECANTERS

LIMITED EDITION

“Back to basics. Although the functionality of Riedel decanters with a double and triple decanting function is beyond doubt, for some they are too complicated and fiddly to use. With these three new decanters, we are taking a step back and offering an alternative which, as far as we are concerned, perfectly interprets the zeitgeist.”

Amadeo – Horn – Ayam – Curly Pink – Mamba and Cornetto – the list reads like a roll-call of bestselling decanters from Riedel. These decanters - known for their exclusive design - are now also available in a mini-version.

The Riedel Mini Limited Edition Decanters hold exactly half a bottle of wine (0.375 l). This size is becoming ever more popular in superior gastronomic establishments worldwide and for use at home. With Riedel Mini, restaurants can now also decant these volumes to perfection and present their wines in decanters at the table.

For consumers, too, they are a wonderful alternative to the regular sizes – and not just as an answer to storage issues. They are the perfect size for those times when you wish to share a bottle of wine on two separate occasions and to drink a perfectly decanted wine both times.

Riedel Mini Decanters are both exquisite and functional – their design is guaranteed to generate that wow effect, both in the restaurant and at home. The decanters are hand-blown and hand-crafted from crystal glass in the Riedel factory in Kufstein.

                                                  

THE “M” COLLECTION

In MARGAUX, MACON and MARNE, Maximilian J. RIEDEL now presents new forms which allow for gentle decanting and are therefore perfect for more mature red or young white wines. “The inspiration for these new decanters came from the elaborately finished cognac and whisky bottles, some of them up to 100 years old, which I happened across in one of London’s prestigious fine wine stores. In the design of the Margaux, Macon and Marne decanters, I have reinterpreted these impressions for my wine decanters. They offer a perfect symbiosis of form and function,” says Maximilian J. Riedel by way of explanation of his new creations.

These hand-crafted crystal-glass decanters are both modern and classic at once. 

MEDOC and MOSEL ideal for more mature red wines, young white wines, champagne and orange wine

The MEDOC and MOSEL decanters represent a gorgeous addition to the “M” decanter collection presented by Maximilian J. Riedel in 2017. Their tall and slim blown-effect form makes the decanters easy to handle. They are ideal for more mature red wines, young white wines, champagne and orange wine.

The design is a clear bow to the current trend for casual dining, explains Maximilian J. Riedel, designer of these new decanters.

The decanters are hand-blown and hand-crafted from crystal glass in the Riedel factory in Kufstein. They are easy to handle, sit perfectly in the refrigerator door and are dishwasher-safe.

The Art of Decanting Wine:

New: Riedel Cornetto-Confetti

Recommended for red wines, white wines and champagne

For years Riedel has been reiterating the importance of decanting. Recommended for red wines, white wines, champagne and rosé wines.

International awards and patents underline the company’s expertise in decanters and their functionality, developed over the course of many years. Cornetto, designed by Maximilian Riedel in 2004, is one of Riedel’s worldwide bestselling products. It has a timeless shape and is easy to use.

Cornetto-Confetti is Riedel’s response to the ever-increasing demand for “more colour” on the international markets. The great success of the colourful Amadeo decanter collection, which was introduced in 2019, gave Maximilian Riedel the idea to create Cornetto-Confetti.  The bright colours of the decanters are inspired by pop art and stand for zest for life and joy! The decanters are handmade in the factory in Kufstein.

For those who prefer an understated look, the Cornetto decanter is also available in the original, transparent version – regular size or mini.
