The Vinum Burgandy glass is excellent for full-bodied red wines (more than 12.5 per cent alcohol) with high acidity and moderate tannin. This glass directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue which perceives sweetness, thereby highlighting the rich fruit and tempering the high acidity of the wine. The large bowl captures all the nuances of the wine's aroma.
We are proud to bring to you the very finest crystal glassware, all manufactured in our own factories in Austria and Germany. Claus Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. He is thus the inventor of the functional wine glass. Riedel produce some of the most beautiful and functional wine and spirit glasses in the world and help you to understand why shape matters when it come to your wine glass.
