Made in Bavaria of more than 24 percent lead crystal for superb brilliance and clarity, Vinum wine glasses are nevertheless affordable because they are machine-made rather than mouth-blown. Since its introduction in 1986, the popular Vinum collection has grown to contain nearly two dozen different glasses. 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 posted a picture showing the various glasses that I have been using for side-to-side taste tests with. The choice of glass does matter, so it is important to match the wine to the glass. In general, match the type of glass with the varietal of wine being tasted. However, even with glasses that are for the same type, there are differences between manufacturers.
The Vinum glass makes all my reds taste good. There are more specialized glasses that make certain wines taste better out of certain glasses. Some of the larger glasses shown in the pictures are better for the large and robust red wines. However, an older wine with more subtle flavors and balance actually tastes better from the smaller glass (this reviewed Vinum).
The largish bowl helps the aroma develop. They are really good to swirl the wine with and release the flavors to your nose (you really taste with your nose). The rim is nice and thin which is great. The balance in your hand is nice; it is not too light to feel like it will break in your hand, but also not heavy so it distracts from the wine. A good glass almost disappears in your mind when you are drinking. You notice it when the wine is poured. You notice the feel in your hand and the feel against your lips. Then the glass should just get out of the way.Read more ›
The glasses have been every bit as perfect for brandy and cognac as advertised and they are easily the most beautiful glasses in an extensive collection. They're even gorgeous when they're empty (although better with cognac, of course).
this is the perfect martini glass....small (I think it's under 5 oz.) but when you want a martini w/o a hangover, this is the glass to get. I would rather make myself a couple of small ones and control my pace, then 1 big one that warms up too fast.
I am also not fond of the large logo spelling out RIEDEL on the bottom of the glass. I didn't even like the smaller initials they used to use. I want to think about what I'm drinking; I don't need to be reminded who made the stemware.
Like the other Riedel glasses, the port glasses are extremely well balanced. For a glass so short with such a relatively large bowl, a thick, heavy foot is required for balance compared to the other glasses, which get away with relatively thin and light feet due to the leverage of longer stems and wider feet. Like their prestige cuvee champagne glasses, Riedel's port glasses are heavy, which feels nice in the hand, like good silver.
The Riedel port glasses are the preferred shape for port, and can be used for other port-like drinks such as Banyuls (which is a relatively inexpensive, long-lived, grenache-noir-based fortified wine that's worth seeking out, especially for pairing with chocolate). I also use the port glasses for dessert wines of all kinds. This matches what I see in restaurants worldwide and works well for me, even if Riedel has a series of other recommendations for various dessert wines. Riedel's least expensive line of glassware labels this shape simply as "spirits", so it's not a stretch to put them into service for whisky, cognac, etc.
Like all other heavy lead content crystal (24% here), be very careful washing them. Scratchy sponges, abrasive cleaner, grit in the sink, etc., will leave marks.
