Filigree craftsmanship meets innovative design
"Zieher glasses are all about top quality craftsmanship, which is created in one of the most innovative and best glass blowing work- shops in the world. Each glass is unique and has been created from lead-free crystalline glass using a traditional, hand-blown method. As well as having a perfect, highly sophisticated and fascinating design, the glasses in the VISION range are guaranteed to provide maximum aroma and optimum development of the wine. However, it is particularly the fascination of the light, the colours and the visual depth that make it impossible to tear your eyes away from the glass, because: You have never seen wine like this!"
"No distinction is made between red wine or white wine glasses in this collection, the glasses are simply theme-based or character- based. The names of the glasses clearly explain what they are used for. You intuitively reach for the glass which presents the flavours of the wine that you particularly wish to emphasise in the best way. If you want a powerful wine to be more harmonious or a touch live- lier and fresher, you pick the glass with the designation that reflects your requirement best."
The wide opening of this glass allows the carbon dioxide in sparkling wines to gently evaporate. This prevents the aroma perception of the nose from being broadsided by a concentration of carbon dioxide, which is often the case with classic sparkling wine glasses. The glass provides the palate with a centralised aroma concentration, which allows the wine to express its exquisitely lively, refreshing and light character. The development of the flavour-carrying, freshly acidic structures is encouraged, and individual features of the bouquet are brought into focus.
The characteristics of the wine are reflected harmoniously one to one in this glass. The authenticity of the aroma culture of a grape variety is made discernible and presented in an unpretentious way, which makes this glass particularly suitable for all types of authentic grape varieties such as Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc. Light, aromatic red wines are transformed into pure drinking enjoyment.
The tapering neck of this glass intensifies the aroma molecules, which are positively hurled out of the glass. The acidity is harmoniously structured in the fruit bouquet, and completes the opulent overall sensation of strength. The glass provides intensive oxidation, making it ideal for any wine that can be decanted or served in carafes.
A perfect glass for wine that is not for decanting because of its sensitive structure, but still requires a great deal of air. This crystal emanates pure consonance.
Even with discordant wines, it succeeds in creating a concentrated and highly elegant impression. This glass turns wine into a complete aromatic experience, without overdoing it.
A glass for the majority of heavyweight or high-proof drinks. The small presentation surface ensures that the wine or brandy does not become overly concentrated, so that the heavyweight aromatic elements are released in a nuanced way. Due to the glass having a narrow opening the nose cannot go in very far, which prevents the perceiving mucous membranes from receiving a barrage of alcohol.
A glass which manages to enrich any mineral water with its extremely open chalice design, which appeals to an extensive palate. The acids and the individual, extremely fine mineral elements of the water are delivered to the tongue and the palate in a refreshing way. At the same time, the carbon dioxide is harmonised and has an extremely refreshing effect, but avoids being penetrating, flavour-destroying or intrusive.
”Of course, there is life without wine, but who wants that?“
