Over the years, Riedel has developed a reputation as the undisputed number one in fine glass. Founded more than 25 years ago in Kufstein, the company today exports to numerous countries around the world.
Even the finest wine or champagne doesn't quite taste the same if it is served in a sub-standard glass (or, heaven forbid, a paper or plastic cup!). The reason for that is simple: the right glass not only looks good but has a direct influence on the taste. Served in a high-quality glass with the right size and shape, a fine wine or champagne comes to life and reveals all the flavours and nuances which make it so special in the first place.
No compromises, no shortcuts
The Riedel family originally came from Bohemia but moved to Kufstein in 1946. It produced its first fine wine and champagne glasses over 25 years ago and has never looked back. One of the reasons for its success has been the company's desire to produce only the very best glassware with no compromises and no shortcuts. At the same time, Riedel strives to develop the 2000-year-old tradition of glass-blowing to create even better shapes, even thinner glasses and even more elegant designs for its customers around the world.
Riedel glasses are often to be found in exclusive restaurants and quality-conscious households. Visitors passing through Kufstein should definitely take the time to see the company headquarters to learn about the delicate craft of glass-making and either start or re-stock their own Riedel collection.
