"Zalto Universal outperformed every other glass in our blind taste test." - NY Times
Mouth-Blown, Austrian Crystal
Dishwasher Safe and Lead Free


Designed in accordance with the tilt angles of the earth, 24, 48 and 72 degrees, the Zalto Denk'Art glasses are the finest glasses in celebration of wine.  

An ideal glass to enhance and enjoy a wide range of red and white wines.

NY Times, August 2017 Review

"Our experts gushed over the beauty of this exceptionally thin, feather-light glass with its long, elegant stem. The Zalto Universal outperformed every other glass in our blind taste test.

We recommend the Zalto Denk'Art Universal glass for the serious wine drinker. Both red and white wines showcased unbelievably well in this glass. Our pros gushed over the Zalto’s thin, mouth-blown glass and the unique tapered design of the bowl. Made from non-leaded crystal, the Zalto sparkles brilliantly under the light, and its delicate stem is pulled the thinnest out of all the glasses we tested."

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."

Exclusively available in NZ through Foxes Island.
