For some time, we have been talking a lot about ‘winelovers’, however, who are they exactly? Generally, they are characterised by being sybarites, curious and very exigent with anything related to the world of wine.
In fact, ‘winelovers’ do not simply drink any wine. They don’t just like any cellar; they enjoy getting to know different brands regardless of whether they have a Protected DO or not. They appreciate discovering new labels and knowing what is behind each wine – its history, the age of the vines, the type of soil where they were grown, the grape varieties used for its winemaking, the type of wood that was used for the barrels in its ageing, etc. They are even interested in learning about aspects to do with the image of the wine
‘Winelovers’ are passionate about wine, and, of course, of Martinez Bujanda Family’s wines, as they buy these not only for personal use but to share and give away as gifts to friends.
Finally, here’s a set of different and very exclusive set of suggestions for the most sybarite section of the ‘winelovers’ across the world.

Sommelier’s Series Riedel Wine Glasses
Sommelier’s is the first collection of glassware made for wines from all over the world and specific grape varieties. It is a revolution of the design created by Claus J. Riedel, who belongs to the ninth generation of a family that perfected the design of wineglasses by its essence – chalice, foot and base.
The glasses have been blown very finely and without any ornaments, adhering to the principles of the Bauhaus design where form must follow function. Claus J. Riedel worked with expert wine tasters and discovered that wine savoured from glasses designed specifically for wine tasting showed more depth and better balance that those which were served in generic glasses. Thus, in 1973, the Sommelier’s collection obtained worldwide recognition. The collection comprises 29 different shapes of glasses for different wines, champagnes and other alcoholic beverages. The price of each glass ranges from 43 to 86 euros.
