DetailsSip in style with this Riedel Vinum glass. Introduced in 1986, Vinum became the first machine-made glass in history to be based on the characteristics of grape varietal.

Different opinions on the ideal cognac glass are as old as the drink itself. Even today, cognac is mainly served in wide tulip-shaped glasses - in spite of the disadvantages which this traditional shape has for the enjoyment of cognac. The differences in color, aroma and taste are the features by which the quality of a cognac is judged. The finely tuned shape of this glass harmonizes the aroma and the taste, tempering the alcohol and the stringency of the palate and emphasizing the bouquet. The flute-shaped glass allows its contents a very small evaporation surface. You will be surprised to detect no pungent fumes but delicately balanced aromas reminiscent of a summer meadow.Measurements
