Georg Riedel challenged his world class glass makers to create from lead crystal, the finest and lightest machine blown glass ever made. He proposed that it should be visually stunning, a delight to hold and price comparative against hand made glasses.
The result is Veritas, a range of glasses that are 15% taller than Vinum and 25% lighter, while still being dishwasher safe, break resistant and suitable for everyday use.
Offering a larger volume, the Riedel Veritas Chardonnay glass reveals the intensity and the wine's layers of aroma. The size of the bowl enables the rich bouquet to develop its wonderfully diverse range of aromas, emphasizing the finesse, while minimizing the risk of it becoming over-concentrated.
Georg Riedel says "Veritas combines the charm of a handmade glass with the consistent accuracy only a machine made glass can achieve."
