The Zalto wine glasses were designed to showcase wine like no other, elevating the concept of form and function to the highest level in wine appreciation.
Mouth-blown, lead-free Austrian crystal. Dishwasher safe.
Master of Wine Jancis Robinson comments on Zalto wine glasses 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. 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."
