Explore the Riedel Veritas glasses range:
Riedel veritas combines the charm of a handmade glass with the consistent accuracy only a machine-made glass can achieve. Georg Riedel (owner of Riedel Crystal) challenged his Weiden factory to execute, in crystal glass, the finest and lightest machine blown glasses ever made. The spectacular result is Riedel Veritas. A glass collection 15% taller than Vinum (Riedel's first machine made line introduced 1986) but 25 % lighter and finer, whilst maintaining dishwasher safety, break resistance and being suitable for long term daily use at home (and even to be introduced into stressful on premise service).
The Cabernet glass is perfect for full-bodied, complex red wines that are high in tannin. The generous size of this glass allows the bouquet to develop fully and smooths out the rough edges.
