Riedel Performance glasses description

Claus Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. PERFORMANCE is the first Riedel wine glass series to feature bowls with a light optic effect. Detailed research by the Riedel family, aimed at improving the organoleptic wine experience, revealed that increasing the inner surface area of the glass had a positive impact on the perception of the bouquet and flavor of the wine. Lightweight, durable and dishwasher safe, Performance glasses are executed in sparkling fine crystal, and feature long fine stems and large stable bases. The grape varietal specific shapes in Performance, when combined with the optic impact, deliver ultimate wine enjoyment.
