Riedel Sommeliers Black Glasses Series Collector's Edition

The world famous glass collection Sommeliers is presented in a new outfit. In 2013, just right for the 40th anniversary, the glass-makers and the designers from Riedel have developed something particularly outstanding - the Black Series. This new line embraces opaque black wine glasses made of lead crystal in the original Sommelier form. The stem of these glasses appears especially elegant thanks to its fine red string, which is jacketed in clear crystal.

Cobalt and Manganese helped to achieve the black and non-transparent colours of the glass. For the glass-makers this is a very huge challenge, because glass combined with such substances cools down faster and, thus, becomes hard quicker. These noble and elegant glasses are produced to enhance the taste of your favourite beverage, but they can serve as beautiful decorative items which will add a unique brilliance to any wine collection.
