  • Riedel Mamba

    Conceived by CEO Maximilian J. Riedel, whose family has operated its namesake Austrian glassware company for 11 generations, the Riedel Mamba (www.riedel.com) contoured vessel allows wine to aerate considerably faster than does a bowl-shaped decanter—almost 19 times faster, according to the company. Green glass and black glass designs are available for $495 each in a limited release of 100 apiece; a translucent crystal version is also available. The colored versions are made from mouth-blown glass, and each is engraved with a serial number and Mr. Riedel’s signature.
