The Riedel O Wine Tumbler Glass Set contains two of each type of glass in this set of four. Broken wine glass stems are a thing of the past. The O Wine Tumbler is the first wine specific tumbler in history. The O collection turns the tumbler, used for centuries as an all-round drinking vessel, into a refined yet casual wine glass. The attractive value gift pack is ideal to give as gift or to enjoy yourself. All Riedel wine glasses are now made of lead-free crystal glass. The wine glass rims are ‘cut,’ which allows wine to flow smoothly onto the tongue verses being ‘rolled,’ which obstructs the smooth flow of wine and accentuates acidity and harshness. All the glasses are machine-blown and dishwasher-safe.

Welcome To Riedel
‘The finest glasses for both technical and hedonistic purposes are those made by Riedel. The effect of these glasses on fine wine is profound. I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make.’ (Quote: Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate) ‘The Riedel family has never stamped its name on a single bottle of wine. But over the past 50 years, this Austrian clan of master glassmakers has done more to enhance the oenophile’s pleasure than almost any winemaking dynasty’. (Quote: Time Magazine) Claus Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. He is thus the inventor of the functional wine glass. Make a journey through our world of glasses and senses.
