Sommelier // Vintage Port // Set of 2
Vintage Port is characterized by its intense red color, which will shine in this mouth blown crystal glass. Unlike lower-quality aperitif stems, this glass has a specific rim angle to keep sweetness from overpowering the senses. The Vintage Port glass is perfect to highlight the rich fruit and sweetness characteristic of port. During a series of tastings conducted in London and Austria, some of the world's greatest port experts selected this glass as the ideal shape. The glass combines all the positive characteristics established by research, emphasizing harmony and concentration of fruit.
The Sommeliers series was a design revolution created by Claus J. Riedel (9th generation). The range adheres to the Bauhaus design principle of form follows function, as Claus J. Riedel had discovered that certain wines showed more depth and better balance when enjoyed from certain shapes. Thin-blown and unadorned, Sommeliers was the beginning of Riedel's dominance of the global wine glass market. Their master glassmakers individually craft each item so every piece has a unique character.
