For game
a strong-bodied red wine

The strong flavors of game pair best with a classic, intense Bordeaux or Cabernet Sauvignon with heavy tannin and spicy notes.


The right glass

The red wine goblets Purismo for strong tannin and demanding wines bring out the spicy aromas of venison and rabbit particularly good.

For fish
a light white wine or rosé

Chardonnay or white burgundy, with their typical freshness and levity, pair outstandingly with fish, whether steamed or fried.


The right glass

The subtly elegant Octavie white wine glass with a sparkling cut-diamond look and wide round bowl, is like it is made just for a delicate bouquet.

The right glass

The tall and slender flute of the hand-blown Grand Royal Platinum white wine goblets create a wonderful moment of pure enjoyment.

For vegetarian dishes
a dry and fruity wine

A red Beaujolais pairs excellently with steamed vegetables or gratins. A semi-dry Pino Gris or Grüner Veltliner is a real treat when served with grilled vegetables, risotto or salads.

The unobtrusive Entrée collection provides the right wine glass for your menu without a fuss.

SPARKLING WINE OR CHAMPAGNE

A feast has to be celebrated with champagne, naturally! Champagne is a sparkling wine from the Champagne area in France. It is subject to strict production criteria and earns the name only when from a strictly demarcated area, hand picked, and produced according to the “méthode champenoise", a special bottle fermentation. For classic champagne, only 3 types of grapes may be used and the bottles closed with a natural corks.

Sparkling wine is the term currently used to refer to all quality sparkling wines that cannot be called Champagne. This doesn’t mean that sparkling wine is poorer quality than Champagne. Sparkling wines are produced through the same bottle fermentation as champagne. So when you treat yourself to a ‘Vin Mousseux’ or ‘Crémant’ in France, a ‘Cava’ in Spain, ‘Spumante Metodo Classico’ in Italy, ‘Winzersekt’ in Germany or a ‘Hauersekt’ in Austria – you are getting the same quality.

In the end, it’s a matter of taste!

We offer exquisite glasses for lovers of champagne and sparkling wine in our different collections.

It is added to the champagne before corking and gives the champagne its particular taste, from extremely dry to sweet. The different designations tell how much residual sugar is still in the sparkling wine.

Brut Nature (Brut Zéro, Brut de Brut, Brut Sauvage, Ultra Brut, Pas Dosé, Dosage Zero, Naturherb): less than 3 grams of sugar per liter No dosage is added to the finished sparkling wine in this case.

Extra Brut (Extra Herb): less than 6 grams per liter.

Brut (Bruto, Herb): less than 12 grams per liter – the standard for dry sparkling wine
