Riedel Grape Viognier/Chardonnay Glasses, Set of 2

The bowl of these wineglasses is designed to accentuate the best attributes of light, dry wines such as Pinot Grigio/Viognier wines. From Riedel's new Grape collection, they ensure a perfectly balanced tasting experience, whether the occasion is a quiet dinner for two or an evening of entertaining. The defining characteristic of these machine-made glasses is their elegant pulled stem, which creates an attractive cleft in the bottom of the bowl. The high-quality 24% lead crystal is virtually indistinguishable from handmade crystal. Dishwasher safe. 12.3-oz. cap., 9" high. Made in Germany. Set of two. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Do not buy these wine glasses!
July 20, 2012
These glasses are unmarketably fragile! In 35 years, I have never had a breakage problem with wine glasses, yet I had to replace 5 of these to keep my inventory @12 within the first 2 months. To date, I have bought 18 glasses and have 2 left. Wm. Sonoma was good about replacing them, but by March, I gave up. The stem breaks when you place the glass down on the counter; the bowl breaks when you dry it with towel; basically any type of external pressure will cause the glass to shatter. Tonight, yet another of 3 remaining glasses shattered into a 18 pieces as I attempted to place it on the counter after washing, making a dangerous mess of sharded glass that splattered all over the floor. I never even attempted to use the dishwasher.! Don't even think of buying them. There is a definite design flaw. They should be discontinued. I have lost more than $600 in broken glasses.
Pros: lovely to look at
Cons: break if you look at, expensive for a disposable glass

When are wine glasses not fragile?
I enjoy my Riedel wine glasses and wonder which glasses the reviewer has previously owned. As with all good wine glasses, breakage is inevitable. The extent of the breakage would depend on the care provided by the user.I don't agree with this review.
