Wine glass manufacturer Riedel is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its Sommelier range with the release of the ‘Sommeliers Bordeaux Grand Cru’ glass, as part of the Black Series Collector’s Edition.

Product details:

The new glassware is available in Black and Red and is made using non-transparent, lead crystal, and blown into shape using original molds. The lead crystal turns black by adding Cobalt and Manganese to the composition.

The stem of Sommeliers ‘R’ Black Series has also been upgraded by adding a fine red glass string which is jacketed in clear crystal.

USP:

Sommeliers Bordeaux Grand Cru Black Series mouth blown and expertly created, and it has a dual purpose as both a drinking vessel as well as primarily considered as an object of beauty gracing the homes of wine collectors.

Cost:

£135 per glass

Availability​: Available at www.riedel.com

Why you should buy it:

A spokesperson for Riedel told BigHosppitality: “You are buying more than just a glass. Generations of wine drinkers have discovered just how much difference the right glass can make, and Riedel glasses are the preferred choice of wine connoisseurs and hospitality professionals.”
