Riedel Vitis... Experience Real Taste!

If you don't know, Hipster Home has Riedel Glass tasting / comparisons every Friday night in the store.  Why you say?  Because experience the difference a proper wine glass makes in your wine tasting is the only true way to understand.  We can tell you how the 24% lead crystal in Riedel glasses has a rougher textured surface than glass so that when you swirl your wine over the crystal, those rough edges agitate the wine which aerates the wine by separating the alcohol off of the body of the wine enhancing the flavor of the wine.  

So why a Riedel crystal glass as opposed to any other crystal glass?  Because Riedel perfected the shapes so that when the alcohol separates from the wine, the wine glass is shaped to either allow the alcohol to stay in the glass longer to strengthen the flavors, or to flash off the alcohol so that your nose isn't overpowered by the medicinal alcohol flavor.  But to tell you these facts and experiencing them are 2 completely different things.  

It's no secret that wine tastes better out of a proper Riedel wine glass and we have them in stock and ready to go.  We ship for free and we guarantee quality, and we'll price match any other reputable Riedel retailer so you know you're getting the best deal available.  Check it out online at
