world’s first grape varietal specific wine glass collection



40 years on, these Sommeliers glasses created in homage to glass pioneer Claus J. Riedel are no longer mouth-blown or hand-crafted; they are instead made using 21st century machine-blowing technology. Claus J. Riedel was the first glass designer to adapt the form and size of the glass to its content, thus creating instruments to enhance the drinking experience. To avoid confusion with the hand-crafted, mouth-blown Sommeliers glasses, the Sommeliers Restaurant series features a logo etched into the base to distinguish it as "Riedel Restaurant".
