" My first thoughts about a dedicated glass for Syrah", said Georg Riedel, "date from a visit I made to the Guidal family in 1992".... Until that time, the Riedel family had always suggested another glass for Syrah. This Riedel Sommeliers Hermitage/Syrah glass was developed between 1993 and 1995 following tastings with many influential winemakers contributing their views. It is shaped to deliver the classic Syrah aromas of toast and black olives. On the palate, it brings out the wine's silky, velvety structure and balanced flavors. The tannins melt into the fruit, appearing sweet rather that acerbic on the back palate. Great for Syrah, Shiraz, Hermitage, Grenache, etc read more


Give a special-occasion vintage the presentation it deserves or transform everyday wine drinking into a luxurious event with Riede...l's Sommeliers Black Tie stemware collection. A stylish variation of Riedel's 1958 World Exhibition Grand Prix award-winning design, Black Tie offers the original varietal-specific shapes precisely handcrafted of brilliant 24-percent lead crystal and adds a dressy finish: a tall black stem on the red wine glasses and a coordinating black base on their white wine mates. This Loire glass was developed through extensive research and testing with experts around the world and is optimal for all styles of Sauvignon Blanc, including Fume Blanc, Pouilly Fume, Loire Blanc, and Gewurztraminer. With a 12-3/8-ounce capacity, the tall, slim bowl and precision-cut rim offer freshness and intensity on the nose, a harmonious balance of fruit and acidity on the tongue, and a minerally finish that lingers beautifully. The glass comes cleverly packaged in a sleek black and red gift tube. Because crystal is course and porous to best intensify flavors, Riedel recommends protecting it by hand washing. --Kara Karll read more
