Josef Riedel was best known for creating and producing grape variety-specific glassware designed to enhance types of wines based on specific properties of individual grape varieties.
He was among the first glassware experts in history to recognize that the taste of wine is affected by the shape of the glass from which it is consumed, and is credited with first discovering the concept of variety-specificity in glassware, developing variety-specific glassware shapes, and bringing these glasses to the consumer market.
