SALE ALERT: HUGE Riedel sale at Williams Sonoma
Anyone who considers themselves an oenophile knows and appreciates a good wine glass. With that said, Riedel is one of the best glasses out there, and it is our brand of choice for wine glasses.
We have a plethora of different Riedel glasses, but my favorite is the Riedel Sommeliers Bourgogne (Burgundy) Grand Cru Glass. Sure, this glass is mainly meant for pinot noir and Burgundy, but I have been known to drink other varietals out of these glasses. This is or go to glass when going to offline tastings, and just a gorgeous glass, albeit a bit oversized.
Today, we stopped in our local Williams Sonoma, and found these glasses being blown out at $61 a pair. WHAT????? This cannot be right. We originally purchased two of these glasses, which retail for over $100 a piece, so when I saw these at $61 a pair, I jumped on 4 of them. In all actuality, I am tempted to go back and get another 4, but we'll wait 'til next weekend to see if they get marked down again. You just never know.
Even so, at $61 a pair, it is basically like buying one glass, and getting 3 free. What a bargain! So get down to your local Williams Sonoma, and see what kind of Riedel bargains they have. This isn't the first time we have come across a Riedel sale that we couldn't pass up, and I'm sure it won't be the last! Cheers! -F. Scott
