Description

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.

Thinking of starting your wine glass collection and curious about which glass works best for you? One of our bloggers researched the subject. Click here to read her findings and which glasses she selected.

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

"nearly" unbreakable, we like dringing wine out of a glass vs acrylic and these are perfect for outdoors

I chose these glasses to add white wine glasses to my collection of Schott Zwiesel stemware.
Alice B on May 3, 2015
I like the tall size of the stem. I will use this for both red and white wines, instead of having 2 different sizes.

I like using matching wine glasses when I have guests. These have been attractive and sturdy enough to use for entertaining.

Met my requirements for a good glass for full body white wines - plus I love Schott glasses!

Did they change the schott zwiesel forte full body white wine glasses within the last year or two? The ones we ordered don't seem to match our old ones.
A shopper on Nov 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I purchased a set in May of this year and, more recently, another set of the full body white wine glasses. They are identical but I can't speak about any that might have been sold a year or two ago. What was a little confusing was that the printing on the box said they were red wine or water glasses but label that was put on the side said they were full body white wine glasses.
