......................................................

We live in the golden age
of one of civilized man's
oldest and greatest pleasures.

There never was a time
when more good, affordable wine
has been available
in such a wide variety.

The enjoyment of wine
is a very personal thing ...
the more we know,
the more we appreciate it.

George Riedel

George Riedel
Tenth-generation glass maker for Reidel

The Riedel family has been in the glass business for 300 years, with 11 generations keeping the family business intact.

The Riedel story begins in 1678 in the northern part of Bohemia, bordering Schlesia - today the Czech republic and Poland respectively. This part of Bohemia was a German speaking enclave known as the Sudetenland.

The Venetians brought back the knowledge of glass making from the Near East around 1.000 A.D. The knowledge of producing glass spread slowly towards the northern part of Europe, searching for energy, critical to the melting of glass. Wood was the source, causing a glass maker migration to the forests. Due to this migration, a glass culture developed in Bohemia in the 17th century.

Carolina Wine Club acknowledges Riedel's commitment to excellence in creating glassware. Contact us to purchase Riedel Glassware.
