There are 4 factors that are of great importance for the taste and the experience of the wine.
Most people can nod in recognition that the temperature of the wine is important and the circumstances under which the wine is enjoyed: the company, the surroundings and what you eat with the wine. The importance of decanting (oxygenation of the wine) and which glass the wine is drunk from is, however, often underestimated - even though decanting and the choice of glass type are both very important for how the wine is experienced and how it taste.
We have entered into a collaboration with HJ Hansen, who is distributor in Denmark for one of the world's most recognised wine glass manufacturers - the Austrian company Riedel.
Last year, in 2021, RIEDEL celebrated their 265 years as a family-owned glassware business.
RIEDEL revolutionised the world of glassware when Claus J. Riedel, 9th generation, designed the first collection of wine-friendly stemware in 1974. This masterpiece series, "Sommeliers", set a precedent for the future of glass design.
Georg J. Riedel, 10th generation, evolved his father's research when he introduced RIEDEL Sensory Workshops as a method of testing and refining their products with the help of master sommeliers and winemakers. Georg introduced the world's first collection of grape varietal specific glassware in 1986, Vinum. These glasses work with wine's DNA to show more depth and better balance.
Maximilian Riedel, 11th generation, took over as CEO in 2014 and has continued to evolve the brand for the modern drinker. From the introduction of the O Series to his original collection series of functional decanters, Maximilian strives to build upon the incredible legacy of his family. His latest foray is into the world of cocktails, expanding the ingenuity of RIEDEL beyond wine.
Innovative and ever-evolving, RIEDEL continues to lead the charge on modern, functional glassware.
We have chosen RIEDEL as the perfect glasses for our wines.
In 2020, we produced 7 different wines, and 6 different glasses are needed to get the optimal aroma and taste when tasting these wines. However, even with 2 of these selected glasses at home you will ensure a great drinking experience with our wines!
Under each of our wines you will find a glass recommendation and also links to more info about each glass and a link to buy if from H.J. Hansen. And as Binivista Family members you get a special 25% discount on these glasses.
