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 workshops in the world. Each glass is unique and has been created from lead-free crystalline glass using a traditional glass-blowing method. As well as having a perfect, highly sophisticated and fascinating design, the glasses of 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!”
The VISION series is predestined for wine and has been created to perfectly represent its diffrent facets. In addition to this, the glasses offer an extraordinary platform for small delicacies or sophisticated desserts. The harmonic wavy shape of the bottom creates an eye catching ring when filled with spume or liquids. The depression in its centre provides space for amuse bouche or decorative highlights.
“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 FRESH, STRAIGHT, INTENSE, BALANCED, RICH and NOSTALGIC clearly explain what they are used for. You intuitively reach for the glass which in the best way presents the flavours of the wine that you particularly wish to emphasise. If you want a powerful wine to be more harmonious or a touch more lively and fresh, you pick the glass with the designation that mirrors your requirement best.” - Silvio Nitzsche
For extremely fresh white wines, Prosecco or any variety of sparkling wine and light rosé wines.
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.
