Our handcrafted bordeaux wine glasses are ideal for full-bodied, complex red wines that are high in alcohol and tannins. Their generous size allows the wine to aerate in the glass and the bouquet to develop fully. The shape of the rim directs the flow of the wine to the front palate to enhance sweetness, thus accentuating fruit while softening bitter tannins.
Each bordeaux wine glass is individually made of lead-free crystal glass: the wine glass bowls are mouth-blown and the stem and base are handcrafted. The glass features simple yet dramatic lines with a perfectly balanced stem and stable base. The superior quality of these premium glasses is evident in their clarity, brilliance, timbre and finish. We recommend to hand wash the glasses. Handcrafted in Switzerland by Glasi Hergiswil since 1817.
Recommended for: Bordeaux (red), Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Brunello, Chianti, Rioja.
The Glasi Wine Series comprises a Bordeaux wine glass, Burgundy wine glass, Chardonnay wine glass, and a wine decanter.
