Part of Grassl’s Vigneron Series, the Cru Wine Glass has a classic elegant look and weightless feel that’s imparts a fine wine experience with every sip. Specially designed to capture the unique character and nuances of light-bodied reds like Pinot Noir, Chianti and Barolo, it’s a formidable addition to your glassware collection.
Grassl Glass preserves traditional glass making techniques with a focus on functional wine-centric design.
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 completion.
All Grassl Glass designs are based on core principles of functionality and usability. The Vigneron Series is built on the feedback of the most renown winemakers today while the Elemental Series focuses on the absolute essentials of wine drinking.
