"The Vinum Bordeaux 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 aging 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." In 1986, Vinum was the first machine-made glass series in history to be shaped by different grape varietals and their characters. The series fundamentally changed global drinking glass culture. Functional, high-quality, reasonably priced and manufactured in large batches, it has convinced consumers and restauranteurs worldwide that enjoyment of wine begins with the right glass. The Vinum collection, which was developed by Georg Riedel according to the principle "content determines the form", is the most inexpensive "Vitrum-Vinothek" for everyday use. From a simple wine glass to a glass which is a pleasure to drink from: every Riedel collection arises out of sensory workshops designed to engage all the senses. No other name is as closely associated with European glass art and glass technology as that of Riedel. That is why every glass bears the Riedel lettering as a unique distinguishing feature.
