O WINE TUMBLER
Broken stems are a thing of the past
In 2004, Maximilian Riedel caught the attention of the wine and tabletop industries with the introduction of his "O" Wine Tumbler series, an innovative collection of varietal specific stemless wine glasses.
"The "O" glass has delighted many and outraged a few," said Maximilian. "People were quick to embrace a glass that offered all the enjoyment that RIEDEL is famous for yet was more casual, easy to use, wash and store and added a playful element to the wine and spirits experience."
This series has now become one of RIEDEL's best selling, and its success is easy to understand. Contemporary and chic, it is perfect for those who crave elegant yet uncomplicated designs for everyday use. It is a series that invites contact and intimacy while raising eyebrows.
The "O" collection began for wine and has grown to include thirteen different glass designs, including six varietally-specific wine glass shapes, plus a glass for sparkling wine, water, saké, martini, and spirits.
When asked why a glass for spirits, Maximilian Riedel explained, "I enjoy Port and spirits after dinner or as the evening winds down, and conversation deepens. I love the way you can roll the glass in your hand - it's almost contemplative."
"O" what will RIEDEL think of next?
The "O" Wine Tumbler series is produced by machine in lead-free crystal glass and sold in sets of two. All RIEDEL glasses are dishwasher safe.
