Great Wine Glasses
Joel from Greensboro, NC– Verified Buyer
We tend to go through a lot of wine glasses due to clumsiness. These are great looking glasses and we have been impressed with the durability. Recommend them for anyone who likes to drink wine!
Great wine glasses

High quality, like the size and shape for white wine. Previous glasses had an elongated stem and I was constantly worried about breakage. These are exactly what I was looking for.
This Bohemian glass merchant was the starting point for a direct line through several generations down to today´s corporate head Georg J. Riedel and his son Maximillian. Each Riedel in this long chain has been able to contribute his personal skills and views to expand the company´s success and make it what it is today. The Riedel story begins in 1678 in the northern part of Bohemia, bordering Schlesia - today the Czech republic and Poland respectively. This part of Bohemia was a German speaking enclave known as the Sudetenland. The Venetians brought back the knowledge of glass making from the Near East around 1.000 A.D. The knowledge of producing glass spread slowly towards the northern part of Europe, searching for energy, critical to the melting of glass. Wood was the source, causing a glass maker migration to the forests. Due to this migration, a glass culture developed in Bohemia in the 17th century.
