"The Stradivarius among the wineglasses" - Stuart Pigott, The Riesling Story-The best White Wine on Earth
Anyone who has ever seen the traditional production of a glass is struck by how fascinating this ancient craft is. There is a charm to the apparent contradiction of the primal fire and the demanding work of the glowing furnace with the precise mechanics and the instinct that is necessary to create these works of art. Despite the simplest of tools, the master glassmakers achieve an astonishing precision that cannot be achieved in this form even with the most modern technology thus giving the human component an outstanding value.
As in music, where the handmade violins of the experienced masters from Modena are considered by many to be unmatched despite today’s possibilities in the production of modern violins, Zalto glasses are fascinating instruments for drinking pleasure.
For expressive, medium to full bodied wines with fine minerality and subtle aromatics, this glass emphasises complexity and refinement.
All Zalto glasses are lead-free. We recommend using a dishwasher rather than hand washing.
*ZALTO wine glasses require additional time to pack and ship. We must ship them separate from wine with additional protection. Should you purchase them with wine, we will need to invoice you separately for additional shipping. For Local, Los Angeles Deliveries - we can ship with wine at no additional fees.
I discovered the wine industry while working with Chef’s Thomas Keller and Joachim Splichal in the top dining rooms of Los Angeles. My passion redirected my career from restaurants/hotels to vineyards and wine-education. Now with over 25-years of experience hosting events; leading trips around the wine world; I published a wine book; produced my own wine called Beekeeper Cellars and sat for the difficult Master of Wine Exam! Today, I am considered one of the region's best wine educators and work for my 20,000 followers (follow me), visiting vineyards and wine regions and produce over 100 wine classes and events a year for my businesses and my team.
