The Riedel Vinum Bordeaux, Cabernet, Merlot Glass is perfect for young, full-bodied (more than 12 percent alcohol), complex red wines that are high in tannin. This glass smoothes out the rough edges, emphasizing the fruit, allowing wines to achieve a balance that would normally take years of ageing to acquire. The generous size of this glass allows the bouquet to develop fully. The shape directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue which perceives sweetness, thus accentuating the fruit and de-emphasizing the bitter qualities of the tannin.

    THE VINUM RANGE 1986 was not just an important year for Riedel but for all wine lovers around the world. The launch of the machine-made Vinum glass collection by Riedel Glas fundamentally changed the drinking glass culture. In 1973, Claus J. Riedel, the ninth generation of the family-run company, introduced a winefriendly, handcrafted and hand blown range of glasses. The "Sommeliers" range is now world famous. In 1986, his son, Georg J. Riedel, presented a further innovation which would become even more significant: the first varietal-specific machine-made glass in history – Vinum! Developed with great passion and based on the well-founded specialist knowledge of Georg J. Riedel, the glasses from the Vinum range provide a reasonably priced alternative to the handcrafted Sommeliers range. With the Vinum range, Riedel has ensured that the company's philosophy of the functional wine glass is affordable and has thus become world renowned. Vinum has become the best-selling glassware of all time.
