Handblown red wine glass designed in collaboration with a wine expert. Wide bowl allows young red wines to breathe; tapered mouth guides wine to the tip of the tongue. Made in Sweden since 1726. Also available for White and Champagne. (
Award-winning designer Erika Lagerbielke created these red wine glasses in collaboration with noted Swedish wine connoisseur Bengt-Göran Kronstam. The stemware is meant to bring out the full flavor of young red wines—the wide, round bowl of the glass rim allows the wine to oxidize and for the flavor to fully develop. The small, tapered mouth opening guides the wine to the tip of the tongue. Each glass is hand blown by an artisian at one of the oldest glassworks companies in Sweden, Orrefors, which has been making glassware since 1726.
Dishwasher safe, or hand wash and dry immediately.
This Swedish glassware producer is named Orrefors, after the forest-nestled community where the workshops are based. With over 250 years of expertise in the art of glassmaking, their glassware has been collected and exhibited in dozens of museums, including the Copper Hewitt Museum in New York and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. This collection was designed by Erika Lagerbielke, who is renowned at Orrefors for designs that fuse a deep knowledge of spirits and wine with contemporary aesthetics and functionality. Her glassware has graced the tabletops of the Swedish royal family and discerning Scandinavian diners alike.
"Glass is my passion," Lagerbielke says. "I work to capture both rational and artistic qualities in the same design, a concept I call 'Poetic Functionalism.' When designing drinking vessels, understanding human desire is equally important as understanding the beverage and its sensory qualities. A great glass for wine or beer will give someone an enhanced experience of the drink, and also, I hope, create a moment of beauty through the sensual simplicity of the glass."
