This Bohemian glass merchant was the starting point for a direct line through several generations down to today´s corporate head Georg J. Riedel and his son Maximillian. Each Riedel in this long chain has been able to contribute his personal skills and views to expand the company´s success and make it what it is today. The Riedel story begins in 1678 in the northern part of Bohemia, bordering Schlesia - today the Czech republic and Poland respectively. This part of Bohemia was a German speaking enclave known as the Sudetenland. The Venetians brought back the knowledge of glass making from the Near East around 1.000 A.D. The knowledge of producing glass spread slowly towards the northern part of Europe, searching for energy, critical to the melting of glass. Wood was the source, causing a glass maker migration to the forests. Due to this migration, a glass culture developed in Bohemia in the 17th century.
a classic wine glass

this is a lovely wine glass. it is just the right size and shape--very pleasant to look at and to hold. the weighted bottom provides a nice counterpoint to the thinness of the glass. though riedel makes glasses for each variety of wine, that's really more glassware than I want to accumulate; I'm glad they came out with this "all purpose" style.

I love these. Nicely made, goes well in the dishwasher. Great for parties and I also use them as small glass vases too.

Love these glasses. They clean up well in the dishwasher and look great. I was glad to learn they are lead free similar to the Schott Zwiesel ones.
