Schott Zwiesel's Cru Classic Collection is a new glass series in a timelessly elegant design. The stems of the glasses are relatively short in comparison to the bowls, making them beautifully balanced and especially easy to handle. The bowl itself is designed to enhance the flavors of the wine, allowing you to enjoy the wine as its maker(s) intended. Crafted from lead-free titanium crystal glass, Cru Classic Wine Glasses are strong and dishwasher-safe, remaining clear and lustrous for years to come.
ABOUT SCHOTT ZWIESEL TRITAN TECHNOLOGY
A Quantum Leap in Crystal Glass
After long years of intensive research and development, in collaboration with the University of Erlangen, Schott Zwiesel has succeeded in creating a new type of crystal glass. The use of unique ingredients combined with an advanced manufacturing process, has created an incredibly pure, hard and clear crystal glass. A crystal glass that is highly resilient to dishwashers, accidental breakage and chipping. Tritan® is a unique, patented crystal glass that sets new standards.
Additional Strength Added to Vulnerable Zones
There are three zones on a piece of stemware that are most prone to breakage:
Schott Zwiesel technology individually tempers each one of these zones to give added strength to the tritan composition. The stemware resists chipping and breakage to stand up to the abuse of daily use. This technology creates lasting durability and longer life to the stemware, without compromising the aesthetic quality of the product.
