"O" Is the ideal glass for everyday use and for every occasion. It is fun, feels good to hold, looks trendy and it works! All Riedel glasses are dishwasher safe. Amazon.com Founded in 1756, Austrias Riedel Crystal is the worlds premier manufacturer of wine glasses and has always catered to the fine wine connoisseur. However, these wine tumblers are part of the companys first attempt at producing a lower priced wine glass for casual entertaining. Like Riedels prestigious Vinum series of glasses, these tumblers are specifically designed for a particular grape varietal and still maintain their ability to enhance the flavors and aromas of the wines they were intended for. The only difference is that the tumblers are missing their stems, making them slightly less delicate to handle, more modern in appearance, and easier to fit in smaller cabinets, mini bars, picnic baskets, and the dishwasher. The O series of glasses are made of machine-made of non-leaded glass. The shape of the two glasses in this set is specifically recommended for full-bodied red wines, such as Pinot or Nebbiolo. Each glass holds 23-7/8 ounces of wine, stands 4-1/2 inches tall, and is completely dishwasher-safe. --Cristina Vaamonde From the Manufacturer O is new O is different O is a true Riedel O the wine tumbler The Riedel connoisseur will be surprised to find that this new glass series has something missing--there is no stem or base. So what is O? Riedel O is the new innovative take on the wine tumbler. In short: O is the ideal glass for every day use and for every occasion. It is fun, feels good to hold, looks trendy and it works! The designs of O are based on the benchmark shapes of Riedel Vinum. For the first time in glass history the design parameters such as shape of tumbler, size and diameter of rim, have been fine tuned to enhance the worlds most important grape varietals. O is available as: Cabernet Merlot, Pinot/Nebbiolo, Syrah/Shiraz, Chardonnay, Viognier/Chardonnay, Riesling/Sauvignon. The tumbler, used for centuries as an all-round drinking vessel, is now turned into a sophisticated wine accessory. Maximilian Riedel has created something brand new with O without losing sight of his roots. O will not compete with the existing Riedel glass series, O is much more a successful addition for those who love an elegant, uncomplicated design that works. 30 years ago Claus Riedel (9th Riedel generation) revolutionised the world of the wineglass when he changed functionality into design. His grandson Maximilian Riedel (11th generation) feels that now is the right time to offer a convenience product. A glass which is easy to use. It fits in every dishwasher, picnic basket, minibar or small kitchen. Broken stems are a thing of the past. The Content Determines the Shape Riedel's belief when it comes to develop a shape is that design ideas are not born on a drawing board but shaped by trial and error with the help and support of the worlds greatest palates. A person interested in wine is led by color, bouquet, and taste. He often does not consider the glass--used as an instrument to convey the message of the wine. Over the years we have acquired some interesting scientific explanations as to why the shape of a glass so influences the bouquet and taste of alcoholic beverages. The first discovery was made while enjoying wine. The same wine seemed completely different, when served in a variety of glasses--so much so that experienced connoisseurs were made to believe that they were tasting a different wine.
