RIEDEL Sommeliers Loire
The Loire glass is perfect for aromatic white wines, from grassy and fruit-forward to oak-aged, honeyed blends, as well as dessert wines.
The tall, slim glass offers freshness and intensity on the nose, a harmonious palate, with an excellent balance of fruit and acidity, and a minerally finish.Sommeliers was the world’s first wine friendly glass collection and a design revolution created by Claus J. Riedel (9th generation). The range adheres to the Bauhaus design principle of form follows function, as Claus J. Riedel had discovered that certain wines showed more depth and better balance when enjoyed from certain shapes. Thin-blown and unadorned, Sommeliers was the beginning of RIEDEL's dominance of the global wine glass market.

Owning a handmade Sommeliers glass is like owning a piece of history - the collection defined a new modern age thanks to their thin, undecorated, functional design. Though they are now over 40 years old, the Grape Varietal Specific shapes remain more or less unchanged over time, demonstrating their groundbreaking innovation.
