RIEDEL Winewings Riesling Glass
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.
The unique curvature of the Winewings Riesling Glass is designed to balance the high acidity and residual sugar of fruit-forward styles. It emphasises all those glorious aromatics allowing you to delve into the deep complexity. We also find that they work wonderfully with other aromatic white wines (think Alsace Albariño Vinho Verde English Bacchus and even richer rosés). And we love that it’s now available to buy by the glass so that you can build your own bespoke collection. But grab them quick because we think they’re 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.
