Riedel Stemless Tasting Glass

Without a doubt, this is the most unusual wine glass you’ll ever use. It’s stemless, for starters… and it features two sensuous dimples that let you hold the glass with your thumb and forefinger. It has lots of volume to capture the aroma, and you can swirl the wine without fear of spilling. Your fingers may warm the wine a bit over time, but not nearly as much as grasping the bowl of a standard wine glass with your hand.

This wine glass is eggshell thin, and rings like a bell if you tap it.

This one is my personal favorite for everyday use – no other glass combines its compact height, large volume, and design elegance. The Riedel Stemless Tasting Glass may be great for solo tasting in your wine cellar (or kitchen), but your friends will envy you when they see it. Don’t just get one unless you like to share!

  1. The size and shape enhances the appreciation of Cabernets, and a thumb indentation in the side and an index finger indentation in the bottom help provide a secure grasp.
