First and foremost, it is a unique piece with its soul, a memorable artifact and decoration of the collection.

Kostiantyn Vidoborenko, Riedel brand ambassador to Ukraine, shares his impressions:

“This year Ukraine celebrates 30 years since Independence Day – a great holiday for Ukrainians. Riedel joined the greeting by releasing a decanter with Ukrainian symbols. Behind the laconic design solution is the painstaking work of masters. It is technologically difficult to melt two colors into clear glass. This is an ancient craft that has been honed for centuries by glassblowers on the island of Murano. Today, single workshops in the world work on Venetian technology, and Riedel is one of them.”

Oleh Mykhaylenko, Chairman of MIRS Corporation, adds:

“This is not the first Riedel project for the local market of Ukraine. In May of this year, MIRS Corporation together with Riedel Vice President Oleksandr Zorin, Ukrainian and French wine experts were looking for the optimal glass for the autochthonous Odessa red grape variety and the wine of the same name. We are pleased with the European brand’s attention to Ukraine. Our market is developing rapidly and opens new prospects for Western partners. MIRS Corporation, in its turn, is pleased to continue to acquaint Ukrainian consumers with wine culture and prepare special gifts for them.”
