This sophisticated glass is a brilliant choice for savoring your favorite full-bodied white wines. The remarkably light and exceptionally durable Air series was created by Swedish design duo Bernadotte & Kylberg.
The ingenious design of the glass invokes an uncanny lightness with its whisper-thin stem and softly curved bowl. The secret to Schott Zwiesel glassware’s longevity is their exclusive Tritan Crystal and manufacturing technology. By eliminating lead content from glass and replacing it with Titanium and Zirconium, Tritan Crystal delivers superior durability and brilliant light-reflecting appearance. Additionally, Schott Zwiesel reinforces the zones on their glassware most vulnerable to breakage: the rim, the junction of bowl and stem, and the junction of foot and stem. Independent testing has proven Schott Zwiesel glassware resists chips, scratches, breakage, discoloration, spots and stains even after 1,000 cycles in the dishwasher, helping it maintain its beauty and luster for a lifetime of use.
For more mature white wines you will want a full-bodied white wine glass. This is a taller, straighter glass and will allow the wine to dispense to the rear and sides of the tongue to better taste the bolder flavor. This glass designed for rich, oaky, full-bodied whites such as Chardonnay, Bordeaux Blanc and Gewürztraminer.
