TO GIVE SOMEONE THE MOST SPECIAL GIFT THAT TYROL HAS TO OFFER, THERE IS ONLY ONE SOURCE: THE RIEDEL FACTORY IN KUFSTEIN! From such a short distance off the highway, a traveler and wine connoisseur can truly experience the unique world of wine glass production at the Riedel factory. The glass factory allows an inside look at the glass making process and how the glassware is diligently mouth blown and hand made. To experience the different senses, Riedel offers “Sinnfonie”,­ an adventure of sensual perception. Visitors also have the opportunity to buy the world’s famous grape varietal specific stemware and prestigious decanters directly from Riedel at the onsite 300 qm shop. Every customer will get their own individual consultation where our experts will highlight the Riedel glass philosophy and answer the important question of, ”Which is the right glass for my wine?” Seeing, hearing, smelling, feeling, tasting. Come and see how our glassmakers create a SINNFONIE from the versatile material of glass. There has been no change in the composition of glass for over 4000 years. It still contains the naturally occurring ­basic materials of quartz, lime and alkalis which are heated­ up to a temperature of 1000 degree celsius to make them liquid and malleable. “Only” 2000 years have passed since the glass blowpipe was used in ancient Rome for the first time. This made it possible to blow glass into different shapes. At our factory in Kufstein our glassblowers still use this ancient­ mouth-blowing method with great care and pre­cision to create the world-famous handcrafted Riedel glasses.­ Claus J. Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. He is thus the inventor of the functional wineglass. A positive approach to life is linked to pleasure and enjoyment. Enjoyment is conveyed by our senses, and this is the theme of our multimedia show entitled SINNFONIE.Why not share our enjoyment in our SINNFONIE? Let‘s set off together on a journey through the world of glass and the senses. We are looking forward to your visit. Welcome to Riedel!

Riedel glasses are for sure one of the best glasses and the store in Kufstein is very good. There is also an outlet store where you can buy glasses for reduced price. Also good quality.

They take their success for granted. I was a loyal customer, then when I gave them some feedback they laughed at me and gave me a thumbs up mockingly. Atrocious.
