Riedel's premier collection, the Sommeliers line, includes an impressive assortment of crystal glasses, each developed by expert tasters to flatter a specific type of fine wine or liquor. This glass is designed to showcase fine Champagne, including Cuvee Prestige, Vintage Champagne, Vintage Sparkling Wine and Rose Champagne. This sparkling crystal glass is individually crafted by master artisans who perform every step of the glassmaking process by hand. Large fluted bowl provides ample breathing space, which concentrates the yeasty bouquet and brings out the full range of aromas. Narrow mouth directs the flow of liquid to areas of the palate that best recognize the creamy texture. To preserve the Champagne's effervescence, each flute has a tiny dot etched into the base of its bowl, generating a continuous stream of bubbles. Hand made at the Riedel family's own glassworks in Austria, where artisans have been crafting exquisite glassware since 1756.
