Product Description

The dishes are put away, and it is time to pull out your favorite port to top off a wonderful dinner. Your guests will enjoy these Riedel Vinum Port glasses over great conversation, and perhaps a bit of chocolate? These glasses highlight the rich fruit and sweet characteristics of port. The Riedels continue to call on the industry leaders when designing a new glass, and, during a series of tastings conducted in London and Austria, some of the world's greatest port experts selected this glass as the ideal shape for vintage port.

Amazon.com

Renowned Austrian glassmaker Riedel designs the shape of each glass to most fully enhance the appreciation of the liquid within. Shaped like diminutive wine glasses, these two glasses are made especially for enjoying port, and, in particular, vintage port. The bowl is just wide and tall enough to allow the fruity sweetness of the port to taste its richest. Thin-stemmed and broad-based, providing just the right mixture of delicacy and stability, each port glass stands 6-1/2 inches tall and holds 8-1/2 ounces at full capacity. The set makes a superb wedding gift or adds to an existing collection for the serious wine and spirits drinker.

Comprised of more than 24 percent lead crystal for superb brilliance and clarity, Vinum stems and cocktail glasses are nevertheless affordable because they are machine-made rather than mouth-blown. Riedel introduced the popular Vinum line in 1986 and this particular glass in 1991. While all Vinum glassware is dishwasher-safe, Riedel recommends washing the crystal by hand to prevent detergent residue that can affect wine taste. --Ann Bieri

I like these particular glasses for tasting a variety of beverages. With having a shorter stem I feel they are a bit easier to control and wash thus reducing breakage.

Granted having THE specific glass for a particular liquor is ideal if you are on a bit of a budget I find this glass is a wonderful "all around" tasting glass.

The bowl is large enough to permit an ounce or two of wine, port, sherry or liqor to be poured and still have pleanty of empty space to permit the aromas to open. The more consentrated glass mouth helps to emphasize the aromas in the glass.

I like using this for fine Emilio Lustau Sherries (especially their Almacenista's). BTW; those are amongst the world best readily available on the US retail market.

I also use this regularly for various spirits and cordials. Packaging for shipment is perfect!

I've had these glasses for a while now. I wash them by hand always. This is a fine product. I like port wine about once per week, and these are the glasses that I use. I am satisfied.

I love all of the Riedel glasses I have, and these are no exception. I don't find that they make quite as much difference in the flavor of the port as I've experienced when pairing wine with the correct Riedel wine glasses, but there is still a difference.

Yes, the actual capacity of the glass is larger than some people might expect, but you aren't supposed to fill the glass. Typically, you only fill the glass to its widest part--this allows room for the aroma to fill the glass and add to the flavor.

These were requested by my husband as a gift, but I figured I comment since I use them as well. The quality of the glass is very nice - not too thin and not too thick. We have had very thin glasses and its easy to break them when hand washing. The glass seemed clear with no obvious defects. It came packaged adequately where they were not broken in transit. Personally, I like a slightly smaller glass (the cup portion) for port, but this larger size is fine as well.

I would recommend these for yourself or as a gift - I would buy them again if we needed to get more.

I gave these glasses as a Christmas gift with a bottle of Port. My recipient loved the gift and even made note of how nice the glasses were and that "I shouldn't have." I will definitely be purchasing Riedel glasses again, however next time they will be for myself. They are well worth it!
