German glass wear manufacturer Eisch Glaskultur has teamed up with Ronn Wiegand to launch the Ronn Wiegand Signature series of breathable wine glasses.

“After a year and a half of using Eisch breathable glasses on a daily basis — on hundreds and hundreds of wines from around the world — I was very impressed,” said Wiegand, master sommelier and MW. “I think that these breathable glasses are truly revolutionary. They are effective in helping wines taste smoother, fruitier, and more forward. I was so impressed with the glasses that I wanted to help them create a new series that helps highlight the elegance, grace, and strength of the greatest wines from around the world.”

The line is machine-made, lead-free crystal with a pulled stem and specially designed to show the best in New World wines. Each piece is produced from a single lump of glass, eliminating the seam between the stem and the bowl for a smooth, elegant profile. Report James Graham
