Product Details

Appreciated by winemakers and wine enthusiasts alike, Zalto enjoys cult status in the world of wine. The Denk'Art range has revolutionised the wine glass and set new standards. The collection pays tribute to the influential Austrian wine expert Hans Denk, who spent decades studying wine and mentored Zalto in its early days. Handcrafted perfection is Zalto's core principle. The glassware is produced from carefully selected raw materials using complex traditional glassblowing methods in the Waldviertel region of Austria, where the art of glassblowing dates back to the early 14th century. The glasses are crafted with straight sidewalls that taper like a chimney, differing slightly for each type of wine and without seams and joins, so the wine is the focus, appealing to all five senses:

  • Sight: Maximum transparency; the wine’s colour is allowed to shine
  • Touch: A wafer-thin body without a rim; delicate but elastic – proof that all parts are mouth-blown
  • Smell: The internal surface of a mouth-blown wine glass bowl is rough when viewed under a microscope. This rough surface creates a larger surface area and provides some drag to allow a fuller appreciation of the wine's aromas. The completely smooth internal surface of machine-made glass does not affect the wine in the same way
  • Taste: The design of the glass influences the extent to which the tastebuds – sweet, sour, salt, bitter, umami – are stimulated; for example, a wide bowl lets the wine flow backwards, a narrow goblet wets the tip of the tongue first
  • Hearing: The delightful sound made when clinking first-class stemware

Recommended for: Bordeaux, Rioja, Sangiovese (Brunello), Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, as well as Chardonnay and Orange Wine

Why we love it
