With the holiday season rapidly approaching, there's a decent chance you'll be doing some entertaining. And if your stemware could stand to be spiffed up, now's the time to replace it. Macy's is holding a sale on Riedel wine glasses online right now, so you can be ready to celebrate with friends and family for less.
Thanks to the special promotion, when you buy one set of select glassware from Riedel's Heart to Heart collection, you'll be able to score 50 percent off the second set – ideal for stocking up on enough glassware for all your guests. On top of that, Macy's has a site-wide sale running through Oct. 21 that'll earn you an additional 25 percent off when you use the code THANKS. There's pretty much never been a better time to maximize your savings on seriously high-quality stemware.
Riedel's Heart to Heart collection is crafted from crystal glass – that happens to be dishwasher safe – and was specifically designed to enhance the taste and aromas of your favorite wines, especially those with fruity, bold flavors. Not to mention, the glasses are super sleek and will coordinate with any table setting. Given that Riedel glasses are also used by sommeliers and restaurants worldwide (and definitely not cheap), it's safe to say this is a serious deal.
Several different stemware sets from the Heart to Heart collection are included in the sale, so choose carefully depending on the type of wine you, and your guests, tend to drink. (No judgement if you favor cheap wines.)
For red wine lovers, take your pick between Pinot Noir Glasses or Cabernet Glasses based on what you most often reach for. The glasses come in a set of two at $39.99 normally, so you'll nab the second box for half that. Then, shave another 25 percent off your total with the discount code, THANKS, and you'll be getting four crystal wine glasses for $44.98. Now that's something to raise a glass to.
If you think you'll be doing a lot of toasting this season, take the opportunity to stock up on Riedel's crystal Champagne Flutes, initially $39.99 per set of two from the Heart to Heart collection. Buy a second set (and third, fourth, and fifth) to maximize your savings and ensure there are enough bubbles to go around when you celebrate.
More of an equal-opportunity imbiber? Not only does the Heart to Heart Stemware Collection have glasses for just about any varietal of vine, but remember that you can still score 25 percent off many of the brand's other top-rated offerings thanks to Macy's larger sale.
Whether you've got lots of entertaining on the books — or you're just planning on some big nights in watching movies by the fire (drink in hand, of course) — browse the sale offerings below to upgrade to some super-elevated glassware.
Pinot Noir lovers will enjoy the fact that these glasses are specifically designed to enhance the aromas of their favorite bottle, via an increased internal surface area. That's sommelier-speak for "it'll taste really good." Get the second set for just $20 during Riedel's sale.
There's always room for dessert (wine), right? Sweet Riesling wines will be best enjoyed when sipped from Riedel's crystal glasses made to enhance the fruity flavors – but you can also use these for other white varietals. Get the second set for $20 thanks to Riedel's sale.
