Schott Zwiesel Forté
After long years of intensive research and development, in collaboration with the University of Erlangen, Schott Zwiesel has succeeded in creating a new type of crystal glass: Tritan®. The use of unique ingredients, including Titanium instead of lead, combined with an advanced manufacturing process, has created an incredibly pure, hard and clear crystal glass — crystal glass that is highly resilient to accidental breakage and chipping in the dishwasher. Tritan® is a unique, patented crystal glass that sets a new high standard. And the Schott Zwiesel Forté series is our choice for classic elegance and durability in everyday stemware at an even better than everyday price.

Schott Zwiesel Pure
The Pure line of stemware by Schott Zwiesel brings the pursuit of pleasure in wine to the point. The bowls of the various shapes both allow a fine wine to breathe and to focus the bouquet for those discerning of aroma, taste, texture ... And they clearly do it all with a certain style. Tritan®, too! Pictured from left to right: Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Cabernet Sauvignon.

We were introduced to the Riedel Vinum line of stemware soon after our opening in 1991. We’ve been most pleased to recommend Riedel Vinum wine glasses to our discerning clientèle since. Each individual shape is designed with great care and attention specifically to enhance the particular character of and yield more of the nuances inherent in a vast array of fine wines, to increase the enjoyment of each and every glass. Riedel was the first to recognize and then promote that the shape and size of the glass really does matter. We regard Riedel Vinum as among the best of class in fine machine-made crystal stemware.

The development of the Denk`Art series was inspired by the Earth and universe beyond. The curve of the bowls are tilted at the angles of 24°, 48° and 72°, which are in accordance to the tilt angles of the Earth. The ancient Romans utilized this triumvirate of angles with their supply repositories, finding that produce stayed fresh for a longer time, and that it also showed improved taste. Due to these cosmic parallels, it has been posited a wine might reach its utmost potential in a Denk`Art glass, developing everything that is possible in the nose as well as on palate. This is glassware that stands at the rarefied point where form meets function. Pictured from left to right: White Wine, Champagne, Burgundy, Universal, Bordeaux.
