Zalto Denk Art: Zero-Gravity, Hand-Crafted Stemware


Zalto is an Austrian company, though the family is originally from Venice, settling in Austria some six generations ago. While they may not have the widespread name recognition of a Riedel, they still represent an Austrian glassmaking dynasty. Every single glass is hand-crafted and hand-blown in the northern part of Lower Austria (Neunagelberg to be exact). Production is tiny, as you would expect given the hand- crafted nature of every glass.

See below for pictures, descriptions and pricing.

Champagne Glass
Price: $58.95
The traditional flute, designed by Kurt Zalto. The signature angles of the bowls are based on the “triumvirate of angles” at which the Earth tilts: 24, 48 and 72 degrees. Maybe this is a bunch of mumbo-jumbo, but these are the same angles that the Romans found were ideal for shaping their amphora. In any event, the glasses show off sparkling wines with unprecedented depth and clarity though, for aged Champagnes, we would personally recommend using the "White" or "Universal" glass.


Universal Glass
Price: $58.95

This is our favorite glass; called the "Universal" because it can be used for reds and whites. When you travel through Germany, it is incredible how many producers use this glass for Riesling - there might not be a better glass out there. We use it for Burgundy and older Champagnes as well. We'll snag a line from movie advertisements: "If you buy only one Zalto glass this year, buy this glass."


White Glass
Price: $58.95
For the complete glassware arsenal, this should be considered. It does seem to make the fruit more vibrant with white varieties like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, etc.


Burgundy Glass
Price: $62.95
This is perhaps the most exotic glass in the Zalto Denk Art Series. The ultra-wide bowl maximizes the exposed surface area of the wine. It is to be used with the greatest Burgundies in your cellar, though all reds will show beautifully in this glass, including Nebbiolo, Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, etc.


Bordeaux Glass
Price: $62.95
Perfectly suited to accentuate Bordeaux and other sturdy reds.
