Schott Zwiesel- The World's Best Crystal Glass
Schott Zwiesel (a brand of Zwiesel Kristallglas, AG) has a 130 year history of innovation and success, including such break through developments as the first machine made stemware and the first lead-free crystal glass. With the introduction of the proprietary Tritan Crystal technique (the result of special compositions such as titanium with a unique tempering process) Zwiesel has once again revolutionized the industry. Rigorous laboratory testing proves the brilliance, dishwasher safety, and break resistance of Tritan. We invite you to discover why we call our product "The World's Best Crystal Glass" and why it is the choice of the finest restaurants, resorts, and sommeliers worldwide.
From Fortessa, the leading designer of formal and casually elegant tableware.
Dishwasher-safe, Durable Composition
Schott Zwiesel's process tempers each of the zones of stemware that are most prone to breakage: the rim, the junction of the bowl and stem, and the junction of the foot and stem. The added strength of the Tritan composition along these zones renders the stemware chip and break-resistant and allows the pieces to stand up to the abuse of daily use.
The highly durable composition also gives Tritan glassware the ability to withstand extensive dishwashing without etching, discoloring or clouding the material. Independent, long-term testing has proven our new crystal glass shines through 3,000 dishwasher cycles without damage, blemish or any loss of brilliance.
Designed with Better Taste in Mind
Schott Zwiesel creates Tritan Crystal Glass with aesthetic beauty in mind, but also with purpose.Each piece provides total balance by proportionately engineering the height, width, weight, and capacity of the glass. The proper pour capacity is measured in each wine glass at the bowl's widest point. This leaves the correct distance between the wine and the stemware's rim, which allows the glass to be turned sideways and experience characteristics of each wine varietal's bouquet at maximum potential.
Additionally, the laser-cut rim of each piece creates a smooth path for wine to travel into one's palate.
When the stemware is tipped back, the straight rim directs wine to spill at the appropriate section of the palate where a high concentration of taste buds can catch and savor each and every flavor of the wine. Laser-etched effervescent points in champagne flutes, which direct a cascade of bubbles to the center of the flute provide a longer lasting effervescence to champagnes and sparkling wines- a once hidden detail only experienced by much more expensive crystal.
