Riedel Flow Pinot Noir
"Country Casual" Flow Collection by Riedel
Wine enthusiasts agree that the finest and best-performing wineglasses in the world come from Riedel Crystal (established 1756). Stemmed glasses for drinking wine have been produced for centuries, but it wasn't until the 1950s that Claus Riedel (the 9th generation of the Riedel glass-making family) discovered that the same wine tastes quite different when drunk from wineglasses with different shapes and bowl sizes. His son Georg refined this concept, working with the vintners at the world's leading wineries to design specific bowl shapes to bring out the best qualities of each varietal. Riedel Crystal now produces the world's most extensive line of wineglasses, in collections that vary in sophistication and price category.

We're especially taken with Riedel's German-made Flow collection and its non-pretentious yet stylish "Country House" look. The lead-free crystal bowls are held aloft solid, broad stems which provide for an exceptional grasp and balance and with surprisingly low weight.
Riedel Flow Pinot Noir
Oregon Pinot Noir
Our very favorite red wine glass. The elegant counter curve of the Grand Cru- shaped rim adds chimney height to concentrate the more volatile aromatics of Burgundy-style wines and facilitates controlled delivery of wine to the palate.
Riedel Flow Cabernet
A classic Bordeaux-style glass with room to swirl your heartier red wines to soften their tannins and release the bouquet. Use it for your favorite Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Bordeaux and Cabernet Franc.
Riedel Flow Montrachet
Oak-aged Chardonnays need a large bowl to bring out the full aroma of the oak. Use it with your oaked Chardonnay (of course) but also the New World chards, Riesling and even Sauvignon Blanc.
Riedel Flow Riesling Grand CruRiesling Grand Cru
AKA Chianti Classico. A very versatile glass. Use it for your Rieslings, Chiantis, Zinfandels, Sangiovese and also Beaujolais Nouveau.
Riedel Flow Viognier ChardonnayViognier Chardonnay
A more traditional white wine glass. Try it with Chablis, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Meursault, Viognier and even Chardonnay.
Riedel Flow SyrahSyrah
With a large bowl shaped very much like a Bordeaux glass, but with a higher chimney, this is the perfect glass for Syrah (or Shiraz) but try it also for Malbec, Grenache, Hermitage, Barbera and even Châteauneuf du Pape.
