Designed to enhance the enjoyment of tasting fine wines, this 8-piece glassware set from Riedel includes four free bonus glasses.
The pack includes four Vinum Bordeaux stemmed glasses, plus four Viognier “O” tumblers as a bonus. The Vinum Bordeaux glass is designed to direct the wine to the area of the palate that perceives sweetness, emphasizing the fruit and mellowing the acidity, while the largeness of the bowl provides room for the wine’s rich bouquet to unfold.
The Vinum is machine made with precision from 24-percent lead crystal. The trendy and sophisticated “O” tumblers are meant to perform as the Vinum glasses, yet they will also fit easily into the dishwasher or cupboard without eliciting worries of broken stems. The tumblers are also machine made with precision, but from non-leaded glass. The Vinum Bordeaux is 8-7/8 inches tall and holds 21-1/2-ounces. The “O” Viognier is 3-7/8 inches tall and holds 11-1/4 ounces.
This bonus pack makes a great gift for newlyweds or new homeowners who are starting a new collection of glassware or augmenting an existing assortment. Hand washing is recommended for care.
