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.
From beer mugs to stylish serveware, these standout designs are perfectly cut out for an Oktoberfest party. All you have to do now is curate the perfect brew-and-bites menu, and figure out who to invite over.
Love the thrill of a stoop sale? Feel a frisson of excitement digging through the treasures to find that amazing deal? Then get your fix here, with this collection of Gilt Home favorites offered at unbeatable prices. Shop early and often, as the selection changes weekly.
During all our holiday parties, it’s common for the bar to get de-stocked (i.e., stuff breaks). Restock your bar — and go beyond just replacing the old; instead, add something new — with these stylish glassware essentials and cocktail accessories.
