Riedel Veritas Cabernet Sauvignon 2 Glass Set

No Comments 25 Sep 5:00 am Author: Randy Category:Riedel Wine Glasses

riedel-veritas-cabernet-sauvignon-glass-set-of-2-0The Veritas series of wine glasses are a break through in technology of machine blown leaded crystal. These glasses are taller, lighter and finer than Riedel’s other series and is still dishwasher safe.
When you see the term leaded crystal it is not as if you are getting lead into your system such as eating paint chips but rather lead oxide is added in quantities of 10 to 30% to the glass mixture which makes the glass more brilliant and gives it clarity plus it makes the mixture easier to melt for the glass blowing. There has been questions raised about health problems when liquids are stored in lead crystal but there have been no cases in modern times. So when drinking from these Riedel Wine Glasses and other wine glasses in general, you should not have to worry about it harming you other than you getting dead drunk from over indulging.
