RIEDEL fans can see similarities with the brand’s Extreme glass collection, the first machine-made, diamond-shaped glass (introduced in 2000), created by Georg J. Riedel dedicated to wines from the New World. The collection derives its name from the extreme corners of the diamond shape, which gives the wine more space in the glass to bring out the full aroma of the wine. Recognizing the evolution of modern wine, the Riedel family adapted the glass shape for Cabernet/Merlot and Riesling, following an intensive new round of comparative tastings.
