Spiegelau Crystal Hybrid Burgundy Glassware

$15.99 inc GST - per stem

The designs for the new Hybrid range were developed in conjunction with Johann Willsberger and draw inspiration from both the hand-made Willsberger Collection and the Spiegelau Authentis range, which has enjoyed worldwide success.
Crystal clear, with a consistent design, using shapes which redefine our way of thinking, Hybrid embraces the vital function of the wine glass as mediator between wine and its consumption. Good stemware is never a mere triviality – only an appropriately shaped glass ensures maximum enjoyment for the drinker, allowing the wine to develop perfectly without its essence being lost.
Since Willsberger Collection could previously only be made by hand, production processes were modified so that the elegant glasses could be perfectly and cost efficiently manufactured using machinery. This has enabled Spiegelau to make this type of design available to a wider public for the first time.

Spiegelau combines over five centuries of hand craftsmanship and innovation with the most advanced modern glass making technologies to produce superb glasses that are ideally suited for today´s wine lovers.  In addition, Spiegelau also preserves the age-old craft of hand blown glass. By working closely with sommeliers, chefs and consumers, Spiegelau has truly  personalized the wine experience, creating a sturdy-yet-fine wine glass for every taste and need.

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.
