Riedel’s New Limited-Supply Serpentine Decanters

  • Riedel Cobra Verde

For the first time in its 250-year history in glassware, Riedel has created a mouth-blown crystal decanter made for magnum-sized wine bottles. Released in May, the limited-edition Cobra Verde decanter ($1,000) stands about 3 feet tall and is the company’s first commercial design to feature Venetian colored glass in a green ribbon of rippled crystal that winds from its spout down to its coiled base. Its snakelike shape also produces a powerful double-decanting vacuum that is said to accelerate the aeration process for significantly aged or cellared wines.

Riedel has created only 555 Cobra Verde decanters to commemorate the 55th anniversary of the reopening of its headquarters in Kufstein, Austria, following World War II. Every piece in the series bears the reproduced signature of Claus J. Riedel, the ninth-generation Riedel who reopened the factory. (888.474.3335, www.riedelwebstore.com)
