SOMMELIERS BLACK TIE - the glass series with a touch of glamour from Riedel, the glass manufacturer steeped in tradition. Dress code: Black Tie. With Black Tie, Tirol glass manufacturer Riedel presents a new and spectacular glass series for sophisticated fine dining. 50 years after "Pokal Hoch" - a design by Claus J. Riedel - was presented to the general public for the first time at Expo 58 in Brussels. With its hand-made Black Tie series, Riedel is celebrating the 50th anniversary of this milestone in glass design. Its distinctive features: a black stem for the red wine glasses and a black base for the white wine glasses, combined with the bowls that have proven themselves for decades as part of the Sommeliers collection. Hence the name: Sommeliers Black Tie. The Sommeliers Black Tie glasses work individually, but also in combination with the traditional Sommeliers glasses, as well as all the other glasses from the Riedel collections. Very different effects can be created according to one's inclination and the occasion: from elegant and stripped-back in pure black, to a playful approach based on the harmonious interplay between the different colors and shapes. Sommeliers Black Tie is a stylish and dignified addition to the globally sought-after Sommeliers series. The Grand Cru Wine Glass Collection was launched in 2008 to celebrate 50 years since the introduction of the BGC glass. SOMMELIERS BLACK TIE - 50 years later, we celebrate the anniversary of this iconic glass. The red wine glasses are highlighted by a tall black stem or black base for white wine glasses. SOMMELIERS BLACK TIE is executed in fine crystal, hand-made in the European Economic Community. One of our most exciting collections.
