Schott Zwiesel® Forte Full-Bodied White Wine Glasses

By replacing the lead in traditional crystal with titanium and zirconium, Schott Zwiesel has created the strongest, clearest, most brilliant crystal glass available. Patented Tritan® Crystal retains its clarity and luster for the life of the glass and resists chipping, scratching, and breakage.

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.

For more mature white wines, you’ll want a full-bodied white wine glass. This is a taller, straighter glass and will allow the wine to dispense to the rear and sides of the tongue to better taste the bolder flavor. This glass designed for rich, oaky, full-bodied whites such as Chardonnay, Bordeaux Blanc and Gewürztraminer.

Schott Zwiesel
These glasses are amazing!
when I was at Sur la Table, the associate did ""the noisy test"", where she took 2 glasses and banged them together. No breaks or chips. I would not have been able to do that with the reidel glasses that I was replacing. Since I entertain a lot, and my guests are not alweays careful, this was a big plus

Pretty...while they lasted
I admit I am clumsy, so I thought these would be a smart choice. However, I have only one unbroken glass left in each set of six (white and red) I received two years ago. Yesterday I broke one merely by knocking it over sideways onto my countertop (so the drop was not a far one). If you read reviews on other sites, you will see that I am not the only one to have had bad luck with the durability aspect. I will say they were pretty while they lasted
