  • THE BRIEF
  • Zalto Glas is an astonishing range of mouth-blown glassware from one of Austria's finest, small glass blowing houses. They are lead oxide free, which means they don't leach any harmful lead, and they won't cloud either. One of the most amazing qualities of Zalto, is the ultra-fine edge and light body weight, but with an elasticity and resilience that means they don't shatter as soon as you walk near them!

    The design for the glasses came from one of Austria's most respected wine gurus, Hans Denk. In his approach to designing the ultimate range of glassware, Denk drew inspiration from the angles of the earth's axis. Not only does this make for a strikingly impressive aesthetic, but the precise angle allows for a wide bowl width, in turn increasing the surface area to volume ratio, and enhancing the sensory experience of tasting the wine.

    The Bordeaux glass works wonders on wines rich in structure and fruit concentration and for wines high in tannin. Broader-based than most 'Bordeaux' glass styles, its unique design brings harmony to potent, concentrated and structured wines. While it works particularly well for Bordeaux, Brunello di Montalcino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz etc., it's also superb with Nebbiolo and Pinot, too. Don't let the name fool you into thinking this is a one-dimensional stem.

    Francois Mauss, President of the 'Grand Jury European': "I didn't think that there would be anything better on the glass-market....this glass is."

    Jamie Goode, The Sunday Express, UK: "I've recently come across another glass manufacturer whose glasses I really love: Zalto. These are truly beautiful hand blown glasses that are amazingly light and delicate, yet quite flexible and resilient too.'"

    Fiona Beckett, www.matchingfoodandwine.com: "Lovely to handle - featherlight, very fine-rimmed and curiously flexible... compared to the Riedel Sommelier range they're very reasonably priced."

    Andrew Jefford, Decanter.com: "If you're looking for glasses and your budget tiptoes into hand-blown territory, though, these are, truly, the best I've ever used."

    Alice Feiring, www.alicefeiring.com: "Its stem was bouncy, balanced and fine as a violin bow, light as a hummingbird's bones. Its rim was as honed as my favorite knife. This wasn't merely a wine glass; it was a precision instrument that bordered on the spiritual..."

    Jancis Robinson MW, www.jancisrobinson.com: "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... Best of all, the manufacturers say they are best washed in a regular dishwasher... 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."

    David Schildknecht, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "... I've been doing a few comparisons with the Zalto and other glasses... I'm impressed enough to covet some Zalto."

    S. Irene Virbila, Los Angeles Times: "Thomas Keller is using them at the French Laundry and Per Se. They're on tables at Eleven Madison Park, Bouley and Le Bernadin, too. Even Robert Parker has given Zalto an enthusiastic quote. Sommeliers are crazy about Zalto glasses."

    Olly Smith, The Daily Mail: "There are plenty of other good wine-glass manufacturers out there, from Dartington to Schott Zwiesel. I rate the Austrian company Zalto particularly highly. Its glasses are delicate and elegant to hold, and beautifully designed for enjoying wine. The one that catches my eye is the Universal glass, which is designed for both red and white wine."
