The Overture collection is appropriate for everyday use and is ideal for beginners through novices who are expanding their wine palate with exploration of many wines from many regions of the world. With this fine collection of wine glasses, Riedel achieves what the essence of wine drinking is all about: enjoyment. Perfect for everyday use, the two red-wine glasses in this set are part of the moderately priced Ouverture series offered by world-renowned German wineglass maker Riedel Crystal being lead-free. They are not crystal like Riedel's premium glasses but are machine blown of potash glass and are dishwasher-safe. Their thin rims are cut and polished to Riedel's exacting standards, so wine flows easily onto the tongue. Though glasses shaped and sized for different types of wine seem commonplace today, when Riedel introduced this idea in 1961, it was revolutionary. Since then Riedel has continued fine-tuning glasses to bring out the best characteristics in wines and spirits. Varying bowls' shapes and sizes affects the position of the head when sipping and where wine first contacts the tongue's various taste zones. The set of two glasses makes an excellent gift.
