Riedel The Wine Glass Company make high-quality crystal wine glasses and are based in Kufstein, Austria. Established in 1756, the company has been owned by the same family for more than 250 years. Georg and Maximilian Riedel currently head up the €265 million per year glass business. Riedel is the originator of the concept of having many different glasses with characteristics designed to enhance specific types of wines.

A characteristic of Riedel glasses is that they are designed to hold a small amount of wine relative to the volume of the glass, allowing the aroma of the wine to collect in the bowl. Typically a normal "glass of wine" will occupy about a third or less of a Riedel stem. Riedel is regarded as the finest in the world by many wine professionals.
