Riedel is truly a joy to drink from. You not only see the quality, you can hear it while clinking the glasses but most important feel and taste the difference. There are possibilities of the allrounder (Swirl), which can be a great entry and which also saves money. It goes on with perhaps a white and red wine glass up to the glass series tuned to ones preferences. My conclusion: certainly not everything is necessary, but if you place much emphasis on quality in the glass, it is also advisable to put the right one on the table.
My first choices would be:
- Champagne Wine Glass
- Cabernet & Merlot Glass
- Old World Pinot Noir Glass
You can, of course, always want more and also expand your glasses (which I, as a wine lover will definitely do) , but hand on the heart, who of us drinks this wide range of wine and also in a quality that justifies the purchase of all glasses? With the above mentioned glasses you are able to be a very good host. If you then use e.g. Even a sparkling wine in a bulbous glass and know why, no questions remain open anyway.
