THE FUTURE OF TRADITIONALLY
MOUTH-BLOWN WINE GLASSES
Forbes Business Magazine quotes Grassl Glass as
“Tall and handsome with fine lines and curves like a Lamborghini”
“Justified among individuals who literally spend their day tasting liquids”
“Indulge every nitpicky aspect of wine drinking”
Swiss Design, Mouth Blown, Light & Durable!
Designed for functionality first; each glass optimized for different types of wine. Other producers in the mouth-blown glass segment focus on aesthetics first. Grassl Glass is the first producer to have functionality in mind, alongside thin bowls and the featherweight elegance for the true wine connoisseur.
An oxy-fuel fired furnace melts glassmaking sand, soda, dolomite, potassium, potassium oxide and recycled glass. The result is a 1700°C hot, lead-free molten mass resembling the composition of pure rock crystal.
Twenty years of glassmaking experience are required to consistently craft the Grassl Glass Collection. Five artisans are needed to produce a single stemmed glass during the hot-shaping phase. Followed by a slow-cooling process with an additional five steps for finalisation.
All Grassl Glass designs are based on core principles of functionality and usability. Whilst the Vigneron Series is built on the feedback of the most renown winemakers today, the Elemental Series focuses on the absolute essentials of wine drinking.
“Grassl Glass changed my perspective towards stemware completely! Suddenly there’s “more” of everything in the wine, both the bouquet and palate. Suddenly all the wines that I’m drinking give me a huge leap forward in terms of my senses, which translates into extreme pleasure.” – Bok
