Riedel Winewings, the Grape Varietal Specific stemware range, developed by Georg Riedel from 2018/19 (and launched in 2020) will be complemented by the stemless Winewings collection in 2021
This new introduction will feature three stemless wine tumblers, selected by Georg Riedel, based on the wine preferences of one glass for White Wine (Riesling) and two for Red (Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon).
When Georg Riedel develops glass shapes, his primary focus are balanced flavors (a perfect equilibrium), between the intensity of fruit, minerals and tannins which highlight a wines complexity, emphasize the varietal profile and at the same time try to suppress alcoholic volatility.
Compared to a stemmed glass, a stemless wine tumbler presents added challenges. Foremost, the size and volume of the bowl, which requires a size reduction in order to produce a glass which is comfortable and user-friendly in the hand.
This necessitates the redesign of each Grape Varietal Shape, beginning with new hand-made prototypes and new moulds – each fine tuning the glass shape, size and rim diameter - to allow research to determine to what degree the glass volume could be reduced, whilst maintaining the delicate and important characteristics of each wine.
Georg Riedel is rightly excited by the new look of this thin-blown glass and invites you to experience how well it sits in the hand, with a unique curvature which invites the glass to nestle perfectly between thumb and fingers. So, pour some good wine and enjoy the new SL RIEDEL Stemless Wings collection.
