Schott Zwiesel Forte Light-Bodied White Wine Glasses
Designed with a classic, traditional shape, the Forte collection’s bowls are perfectly sized for the appropriate wine. Each glass is reinforced at the rim and both ends of the stem (where it meets the foot and the bowl) and the soft tapered bowl focuses your wine’s essence to the palate. This collection is the perfect introduction to the fine design of Schott Zwiesel Tritan crystal.
To fully appreciate a young, crisp, white wine this glass is the perfect choice. It features an opening that’s slightly larger than the body of the glass itself, allowing the wine to dispense at the tip and sides of the tongue for a fuller realization of the wine’s sweetness. This glass is designed for crisp, sweeter, light-bodied whites such as Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling.

Care & Usage Show
- Dishwasher safe
They are incredibly durable - far better than other name brands.... they will break if you are careless or are on the third bottle of wine, but far beyond their competition
The only problem I've had is with the shape of the glass - which I love the look of. It is a bit of a tight squeeze for washing. I can get my (very small!) hand in with a sponge, but only just barely. If you are good about rinsing the glasses right away, this shouldn't be a problem. I have heard you can put these in the dishwasher, but I haven't tried it.
Even with the tight fit, I would still pick these again. LOVE them
We use these glasses often and I love the fact that they can be washed in the dishwasher and continue to look as beautiful as when I first purchased them. They are perfect for my needs.

Questions & Answers
Which one is 8 inches tall with a top diameter of 2 1/2 inches
I can't find them but have purchased them in the past(last year). I need a white wine glass by them that is as close to 8"" as possible. I am on the last one and it is exactly 8"" tall. My dishwasher is limiting the height. THanks so much, Claudi
At this time the shortest white wine glass we are carrying is the Forte Light Bodied which is 8 1/2 inches tall.
