The ovoid-shaped large bowl with a relatively narrow mouth stands out in Riedel’s range of varietal wine glasses. Riedel has initially produced approximately 20,000 of the new glass. The first orders, lots of which have come local wineries, are being delivered now.

The initiative for the Furmint glass project had come from Tokaj winemakers and Balázs Vinnai, a Hungarian businessman with close ties to Tokaj. An initial tasting by a large group of local winemakers was held in October 2014 to test existing Riedel glasses. The findings of that tasting were transposed into a couple of tentative shapes, which were then tested in May 2015 at the Riedel headquarters in Kufstein, Austria. The design was finalised during the summer.
