Riedel Vinum Riesling Grand Cru - Zinfandel Glass is a refined glass for red and white wine made by Riedel.
TheRiedel Vinum Riesling Grand Cru - Zinfandel Glass is made from unleaded glass, fused at a very high temperature and perfectly machine blown. In 1992, Georg Riedel gathers the most distinguished producers of Zinfandel to hold a series of seminars and tastings of this variety. His aim was to develop the appropriate shape of the glass, which would highlight the nuances and all the character of the Zinfandel variety. The result is a glass that moderates the alcoholic volume and marks the varietal and spicy notes, making it very suitable also for the Alsatian Grand Cru.
The Riedel Vinum Riesling Grand Cru - Zinfandel Glass is included in the Vinum series. Created in 1986, it was the first series manufactured mechanically, which adjusted, to the maximum extent, their high-quality, price and wide distribution.
Measurements: height 210 mm, capacity 400 ccm, maximum diameter 79 mm.

Riedel is the most famous manufacturer of glasses in the world. Founded in 1756, it has been producing glass in the heart of Europe (Kufstein, Austria) for more than 250 years. At the end of the 50s, Claus J. Riedel designed the shape of the glass, adapting it to the characteristics of the wine. He demonstrated that the size and shape of the glass have an influence on the perception of the aroma and flavour of the drink, so he started to use fine blown glass, without embellishments, to reduce the design to its essential character. From that moment, Riedel has been creating all its glassware according to the type of grape, the region and the wine to be tasted. Currently, Riedel specialises in the service and tasting of wine and all kinds of drinks. It creates its collections for every lifestyle and within a wide range of prices, perfectly combining luxury and functionality.
