Riedel Veritas Series

Riedel Veritas SeriesInnovative Austrian glassware giant Riedel has released a range of glasses designed to pair specifically with certain grape varieties. Dubbed the Veritas Series, the 10-strong range is 15% taller and 25% lighter than Riedel’s Vinum collection.

Developed in Bavaria by Riedel’s chief engineer, Franz Schmid, according to Riedel, the crystal glasses are break resistant, dishwasher friendly and suitable for daily use.

“Veritas combines the charm of a handmade glass with the consistent accuracy only a machine made glass can achieve,” says Riedel’s 10th generation owner, Georg Riedel.

The range includes varietal-specific shapes for Cabernet Sauvignon, Old World Pinot Noir, New World Pinot Noir, Old World Syrah, New World Shiraz, Chardonnay, Riesling and Viognier/Chardonnay. Veritas will launch in the UK at the London Wine Fair next month, with Riedel having been appointed the official glassware sponsor of London Wine Week, which takes place from 2-8 June.

RRP: £55 for two.
