INTRODUCING A NEW GENERATION OF MOUTH-BLOWN, LEAD-FREE AND DISHWASHER-SAFE WINE GLASSES, THE ZALTO DENK`ART COLLECTION, LUXURY STEMWARE YOU COULD SENSE FROM YOUR FINGERTIPS TO THE MOMENT YOU TAKE YOUR FIRST SIP.
FROM THE FIRST TOUCH, EACH ZALTO GLASS DISTINGUISHES ITSELF FROM ALL OTHER GLASSES. FROM THE PERFECTLY EXECUTED BALANCE TO THE EXTRAORDINARY DESIGN, THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE DENK`ART LINE ARE GLASSES THAT SEEM NEARLY TOO DELICATE TO HOLD, AND YET THEY ARE MADE FOR JUST THAT. THIS IS GLASSWARE THAT STANDS AT THE RAREFIED POINT WHERE FORM MEETS FUNCTION. THIS IS ART.
Master of Wine Jancis Robinson comments on ZALTO Glassware in the Financial Times
“…the glasses that have most impressed me recently, from Zalto, with a similarly rather Scandinavian shape. They are designed by ‘the wine priest, Father Denk’ and the bowls are tilted at the angles of 24, 48 and 72 degrees, which are in accordance to the tilt angles of the earth’. Who knew?
What I love is that Zalto glasses are the thinnest and most delicate glasses I have come across, yet seem springy and almost elastic in the hand. The Zaltos were originally Venetian, but the glasses are made in northern Austria and over the border in the Czech Republic. Best of all, the manufacturers say they are best washed in a regular dishwasher…they are not cheap, but they are cheaper than many of Riedel’s top models and would give any serious wine lover a real thrill over the closeness of contact they offer.”
