Riedel Glass Company
Riedel — the finest wine glasses in the world!
You don't have to be a wine expert in order to enjoy the wine experience to its fullest. According to Robert M. Parker, of the Wine Advocate, the finest glasses from both a technical and a hedonistic perspective are those made by Riedel. Despite the fact that the Riedel family (now in its 11th generation of business) has never placed their name on a single bottle of wine, Time Magazine claims that this family of Austrian master glassmakers have done more to enhance the oenophile’s pleasure than virtually any winemaking dynasty!
From the Kitchen to the Table is proud to carry an extensive line of Riedel products -- everything from wine glasses to decanters, to quality wine accessories. Discover for yourself what Riedel founder Claus Riedel discovered years ago when he became the first person in history to actually design the shape of a glass to enhance the character of the wine!
Riedel has been known for over four decades for designing the most finely tuned instruments for every level of wine sophistication as well, today, as the finest wine glasses in all price categories. While a glass cannot alter a fine wine or spirit, it can and does dramatically alter our perception of it.

Riedel Pink Vinum Rosé
To Benefit Living Beyond Breast Cancer
For the third year, Riedel has created a special, limited edition glass to benefit Living Beyond Breast Cancer. The Pink Vinum Rosé glass with its soft pink stem and clear bowl will be available in 2007, in time for rosé wine season. The glass will be sold in sets of two for $59.00, attractively packaged as a pair in a black box adorned by the pink ribbon synonymous with this important cause. Riedel will donate 15% of the proceeds from the sale of this glass to support those dealing with the devastating diagnosis of breast cancer and life beyond.
The first two glasses in the series, the Pink "O" wine tumbler (2005) and the Pink "O" Champagne glass (2006), sold out in record time, providing a donation of over $100,000 to Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
The Pink Vinum Rosé glass is a machine-blown crystal glass based exclusively on the characteristics of the grape varietals used to create rosé wines.

Tyrol is ideal for casual, elegant in-home dining. The glass stands on a solid half sphere which offers an amazing light reflection. The low height allows the glass to be enjoyed daily because of easy dishwashing. The range consists of 10 different sizes and each bowl is developed for the enjoyment of popular grape varieties and soft drinks. Tyrol is executed in lead crystal which gives the solid base a never ending sparkle and great stability. The name Tyrol commemorates Riedel’s new start 50 years ago in Austria in the federal state of Tyrol.
