Just in Time for Valentine’s Day . . .

January 30, 2008
Terrakeramik.com is thrilled to launch the fine crystal stemware collection by Glasi Hergiswil of Switzerland. Each piece is individually mouthblown from lead-free crystal glass by skilled artisans in this 200-year old, employee-owned glassworks on the shores of Lake Lucerne, Switzerland.  
  The Glasi Wine Series comprises a Bordeaux wine glass, Burgundy wine glass, Chardonnay wine glass, and a wine decanter.The size and shape of the wine glass bowls and rims are designed to enhance the characteristics of particular wine varietals.Our wine decanter features a long neck with a slightly widened opening for easy, drip-less wine decanting and has a broad base to expose a greater surface area that allows the wine to aerate and release flavors and aromas.
The Glasi Champagne Series comprises a Champagne flute and the Conca ice cooler.The functional design of our Champagne flutes brings out the fine aromas and effervescence of fine Champagne and sparkling wine.With its stunning lines derived from a seashell, the Conca ice cooler is perfect to chill a bottle of Champagne or white wine. The thick glass helps insulate its contents and the weight provides the necessary stability to keep the contents upright.  
  Our handcrafted Glasi beer glasses are ideal for pilsner-style beers and showcase the color, effervescence, and clarity of the beer. The inverted cone shape with an even taper focuses the hop aroma of a beer and maintains a robust head.
