Description

The first recorded mention of the Spiegelau factory is in the last will and testament of Erasmus Mospurger, dated 1521.
Throughout history, glass has played a major role in shaping lives, propelling economies and advancing civilization. As thousands of other glass manufacturers have come and gone, the company has endured and flourished.
In the sixteenth century, when mirrors were popular in royal courts, the company produced fine glass mirrors, beads and decorative bottles. In 1845 the factory produced snuff bottles, which were all the rage.
In 1911 the factory was rebuilt and modernized. In 1926, owner Fritz Pretzfelder gave the company its current name – Kristallglasfabrik Spiegelau GmbH, or The Spiegelau Crystal Glass Factory. During World War II, he fled to England and returned after the war to take repossession of his company. In 1990 Spiegelau was purchased by Nachtmann Group.

    • Brilliant clarity – by using only the purest ingredients
    • Improved breakage resistance – due to a perfect connection between bowl and stem – “Elephant foot“ improves durability
    • Independently certified dishwasher safe – 1500 cycles dishwasher proof – thanks to the Platinum Glass Process
    • Certified environmental management – Quality Made in Germany

The form of the glass is dictated by a wine`s need to express itself, and by the way that tastes are perceived in each and every wine. The challenge issued to the glass has far less to do with the grape variety, it depends much more on other elements, such as maturity, acidity, tannin, viscosity and the bouquet of the wine.
The glasses are manufactured by the specialists in SPIEGELAU, one of the most important wine glass manufacturers in Europe.
