Zalto in the Media

Here are links to articles and video featuring Zalto stemware.

New! The Wall Street Journal have compiled a list of perfect things. Zalto is on it. "... there are also things that - by virtue of great design and meticulous craftsmanship - have achieved their optimal state. There will be no upgrade, no obsolescence."

Carolyn Evans Hammond loves Zalto and writes extensively about the glasses in the Toronto Star. "Move over Riedel. Zalto is the new gold standard of stemware."

Robert Parker, the world's most influential wine critic, talks about how he enjoys using Zalto wine glasses on his Facebook page.

Wine Spectator loves Zalto too. They recommend them here.

A great article in the LA Times.

"Which wine glasses are the cool kids coveting these days?"

Bon Appetit raves about Zalto here.

"Quite Possibly the Greatest Wine Glass We'll Ever Drink From"

And The Village Voice (note: article no longer available) included Zalto in their Gift Guide for wine lovers in 2013.

"It's like flying first class -- you'll never want to go back to coach."

An excellent article in the Wall Street Journal (note: article no longer available) about Zalto.

"I don't want to stop holding this glass."

Jancis Robinson lauds the Zalto glasses here.

" current favourite glasses have taken me into a whole new territory of sensual pleasure. Zalto glasses, originally made by a family with roots in Venice, are hand-blown, do not contain lead oxide so do not get cloudy, and combine an angular bowl shape with the thinnest glass I have yet come across."

The Telegraph (note: article no longer available) in the UK published this article about Zalto.

"I like the way wine tastes out of Zalto but it's really the way these glasses feel in your hand that makes them so seductive. The glass is hand-blown, extremely fine, and so light that when you pick up other glasses after holding one, they feel uncomfortably clumsy."

But perhaps the most important of all is an article from the German magazine Stern from December 2009. Stern conducted a comprehensive blind tasting of wine glasses where the professional jury was blindfolded and wore gloves. Zalto won first place in all three categories. An English translation of the article is here.
