We have Riedel Vinums and Spiegelau Vino Grandes... burgundy and bordeaux. While they're all excellent, my favorite is Spiegelau Burgundy. Personally, I like the bigger bowl, and the fact that they cost much less... so I don't feel bad breaking them. There is no noticable difference of flavors or aromas between the respective Riedels and Spiegelaus.
I have been enjoying my 'Top Ten', full-bodied red, stems from Schott-Zwiesel for the past year. (6pk for $85) They are very resistant to breakage (unlike riedel) and dishwasher safe. I have purchased other varietal specific stems from this collection, but this stem works well with both whites and reds.

After attending one of Riedel's fabulous demonstrations of the effect of stemware on wine, I looked around at the tables littered with glasses and asked Georg if he had a favorite, multipurpose shape that he brings on his travels. His answer? The Chianti/Zinfandel shape.
Now you know what I use at home -- though I must admit to using specific shapes when I break out top bottles of Pinot Noir, Riesling, Cab and bubbly.
