RIEDEL Stemless Wings Riesling/Champagne Glasses x 4 in 265 Years Gift Box
A glass specifically designed for two of the greatest things in the wine world: Riesling and Champagne. Fasten your seat belts because your wine collection is about to take off…
Launched in 2020 Winewings is a striking new collection from Georg Riedel. Using his 47 years of experience combined with that of the nine generations that preceded him Georg Riedel has created his magnum opus. A bold shift in aesthetics for the brand these glasses emphasise the minerality of the wine rather than the fruit. This allows the depth and complexity to shine creating the “ultimate wine geek” experience. The flat-bottomed shape mirrors that of an aircraft wing and increases the surface area allowing greater exposure to oxygen and more intense aromas. The curved walls capture the layered aromas and gently guide them towards your nostrils in a manner optimised for each grape variety. This stunning glassware unleashes your wine’s potential and lets it take flight.
Now Riedel has created a stemless version allowing you to experience the unique curvature of Winewings but without the stem. They are also slightly smaller making them easier to grip clean and store. The Stemless Wings Riesling/Champagne glass is designed to balance the high acidity and residual sugar of these fruit-forward styles. It emphasises all those glorious aromatics allowing you to delve into the deep complexity. Try these and you’ll agree that flutes are so last year. Who needs white wine glasses and Champagne flutes when you can have one ultimate glass for both? And as if that wasn’t enough in celebration of the company’s 265th anniversary Riedel created some limited-edition boxes containing four of these stunning glasses. Stemless Wings Riesling/Champagne are perfect for anyone who loves aromatic white wines (think Riesling Alsace New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc English Bacchus and even rosé) and sparkling wines (Champagne Prosecco Cava and English Sparkling). Hold up is that everyone? These will be our go-to glasses throughout the summer months and being stemless they’re perfect for picnics and al fresco drinking. For those reasons we think these gift boxes are going to fly.
The Riedel family can trace their trade in luxury glassware back to Johann Cristoph born in 1673. Now in the hands of the 11th generation Maximilian Josef Riedel this multi-award-winning family-run business has become as entwined with the world of fine wine as the vines themselves. Combining science the experience of some of the world’s finest palates and a pinch of magic they design their glorious glasses to enhance the bouquet texture flavour finish and pleasure delivered by specific grape varieties. Anyone lucky enough to attend one of their wine glass tasting events will be converted for life. The adage of having ‘the right tool for the right job’ has never been more fitting than when enjoying wine from a Riedel.
