Georg J Riedel, 10th generation glassmaker and owner of Riedel Crystal, and Angelo Gaja, 4th generation owner of Gaja Winery and Italy’s greatest winemaker, have specially chosen the wines for the celebratory evening; Gaia & Rey 2009, Ca Marcanda 2008 and Gaja Sperss 2004. VIP tickets include a Sommeliers glass set worth £315 to take home, these tickets are priced from £175 per person. The Standard ticket is priced from £125 per person and includes a Vinum XL set to take home, worth £82.50.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, the Sommeliers collection remains Riedel’s signature range today. When the collection was launched in 1973, it illustrated to perfection a quantum leap in glass design following Claus Riedel’s pioneering work in the creation of the world’s first ever stemware that matches, and complements different wines, and which is both functional and beautiful.

The Riedel Difference

Since then, generations of wine drinkers have discovered just how much difference the right glass can make, and Riedel glasses are the preferred choice of wine connoisseurs, hospitality professionals, and consumers worldwide. Recognised for transforming wine culture, Riedel’s design-focused decanters, various stemware lines and stemless “O” collections have been selected for display at the British Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Corning Museum of Glass, San Francisco MOMA and more.
