Stemware is no capricious matter. Glasses are designed to enhance a wine’s harmony and should be carefully chosen. Specialized manufacturers such as the Austrian Riedel have developed a number of very specific techniques to produce drinking glasses that, beyond beautiful, will bring out the best in the wines and spirits poured into them.
Differences and characteristics from glass to glass are numerous and can render them quite dissimilar; since they are created to cater to a wine of certain character, the scope is as rich and broad as the wine spectrum itself.
