Schott Zwiesel Pure Collection Champagne Flute – 9.5 (95/100 Pts) – James Melendez

I am big fan of Schott Zwiesel stemware and in particular my favourite line is the Pure collection.  There are 17 silhouettes or styles all together (including Champagne flute).

I have used almost every major fine stemware producers glasses and have landed solidly on Schott Zwiesel for several fundamental reasons.  This brand produces a compelling and full line of stunningly beautiful wine glasses that are so distinct that only one producer could have such a great design.

Not only is Pure a great design it is fully functional.  The performance of this stemware is optimum in terms of tasting and maintenance.  When cleaning—either by hand or dishwasher is no longer a worry if the stem you are cleaning will snap off easily.  I had worried so much with other producers stems that I don’t think I cleaned as thoroughly as I would have liked.

Schott Zwiesel calls their glass material Tritan; the key feature is that it does not contain lead instead it contains titanium.  The durability while handling is solid.  The weight of each stem is slightly lighter than many leaded wine glasses.  Also, the performance in dishwasher is outstanding-no streaking or film over time.  I no longer worry about how long I will have a certain stem.

The investment in fine wines is only as good as a solid investment in fine stemware.  I have depended and will continue to depend on Schott Zwiesel to continually deliver high quality wine glasses within a reasonable price point.

About James Melendez

II love wine and business. I am obsessed with the subject, the art, the history, the sciences, organization management, and making things less complex I have been a former national wine marketing manager for a large off-premise food and wine retailer (280+ retail locations in 30 US States); the love for wine taught me the good practice of using the best methodologies to right side a business which unto itself is complex. Further complexity is wine. Wine simple to enjoy and yet profoundly complex because of many factors: Many grape varieties States of wine: sparkling, still and fortified wines Vintage Blends Regions/AVAs/DOCs etc. Many producer styles Many producers Limited supply Limited and often restricted distribution My experience is still a lot of intimidation with respect to wine. Wine means many things to many people; status, fear, success, ‘you’ve arrived’, enjoyment, good times, tradition and even ceremony. I have consulted with wine producers and association. I have spoken on Wine and Social Media, Wine and Video and The Business of Wine in conferences in the United States and Europe. Beer and spirits do have the same dynamics–there are many producers but compared to wine there is no other consumer product like it. I have been writing about since November 2006 on my site and I have over 2,890 wine videos on my YouTube channel talking about general wine subject matter as well as specific educational topics on wine and reviews. I have been a wine judge and have traveled to many wine countries in the new and old world. Wine has taken me to great places. Life is tough for most of us and it is nice to celebrate life with those near and even far. What wine is really about is sitting around a table with family and friends raising your wine glass and saying—to life! I love to write about travel, food, technology and business–please subscribe!
