For 500 years the German company Spiegelau has produced glassware and accessories that have graced royal courts and dinner tables alike. Such a wealth of experience allows Spiegelau to create stemware extraordinarily suited to enhancing a grape’s body and bouquet—whether it be a generous bowl to unlock a full-bodied Bordeaux, or a more fluted shape to concentrate a delicate champagne. Storied history aside, Spiegelau continues to innovate technically and aesthetically, recently developing a line of “extremely dishwasher-safe” wine glasses and eliminating the seam between the bowl and stem for an even more elegant silhouette.
When your craft dates back to the Middle Ages, it’s hard to escape the weight of history. But that hasn’t stopped Luigi Bormioli from innovating the art of glassmaking. Since setting up shop in 1946 in Parma, Italy, this family-owned company has made products that respect the past yet also focus on the needs of users today, particularly in regard to the strength, clarity, and affordability of the glass. Bormioli’s lead-free wine glasses, carafes, tumblers, and more — with design flourishes inspired by Renaissance painters — are always simple and elegant.
