I had the opportunity to speak with Georg Riedel of the famous, generations-old, wine glass producer Riedel. He revealed to me the story of his memorable, and initially rocky, first encounter Robert Mondavi, and how Mondavi became a believer in both Georg and Riedel. All in the span of a single day.
Naturally I also had to ask Georg what wine he most often poured into his glass.
