Based in Austria for over 200 years, Riedel is a world reknown manufacturer of high quality glassware. Claus Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. He is thus the inventor of the functional wine glass. A unique glass brings out the best in every wine – that’s what sets Riedel glassware apart.
VINUM (1986) is Riedel's basic stemmed series.This series was created by Georg J. Riedel, based on the Sommeliers range, in order to make Riedel varietal-specific glassware more accessible to the general consumer.
Sparkling wines and champagnes pose a challenge: how do you maintain the bubble? The solution lies at the bottom of each Vinum Prestige Cuvee Flute. Etched into each is a small dot, the purpose of which is to provide a slightly abraded surface that serves to generate a continuous stream of bubbles and prevent the champagne from going flat in the glass.
Designed to highlight the bouquet of champagne, this light and well-balanced glass accentuates the complexity and richness of vintage champagnes and prestige cuvees. The magic of this glass is its ability to highlight the full spectrum of aromas and flavors offered by fine champagnes and sparkling wines, while preserving their elegant effervescence.
