Why Shape Matters

  • Stemware consists of three parts: the bowl, stem and base.
  • The height of the stem and the width of the base are part of the glass design (known as the architecture).
  • Grape varietal specific stemware features finely-tuned glass bowls consisting of three variables: shapesize and rim diameter.
  • Grape varietal specific stemware has to translate the "message" of wine to the human senses.

A RIEDEL glass turns a sip of wine into a celebration!

There are 4 Sensations in Wine

  1. Bouquet: Grape varietal specific stemware is responsible for delivering the quality and intensity of the wine’s aroma.
  2. Texture: Grape varietal specific stemware highlights the exciting and diverse styles of "mouthfeel" in wine (watery, creamy, silky, velvety).
  3. Taste: Grape varietal specific stemware creates a balanced interaction between the fruit, minerality, acidity and bitter components of a wine.
  4. Flavor: Grape varietal specific stemware offers a pleasant, seamless, harmonious, and long lasting aftertaste.
