Drink wine in style without worrying about breaking glass. Our selection of Schott Zwiesel glassware is made with Tritan technology. After much research and development, in collaboration with the University of Erlangen, Schott Zwiesel has created a new type of crystal glass that is pure, hard and is highly resilient to dishwashers, accidental breakage and chipping. Schott Zwiesel Tritan crystal uses the strength of titanium rather than lead to make the glasses more durable. While they are more durable, their beauty and elegance are exceptional. Dishwasher safe and break resistant. Made in Germany.
We use Schott Zwiesel stemware in our homes and in our cooking school. Schott Zwiesel wine glasses are shock resistant and break less often because they are made of titanium crystal instead of the more traditional lead crystal. What is nice about Schott Zwiesel stemware is that the glass is thin. You will never know that they are so tough until you knock one over on a granite counter top or drop one in the sink and it bounces and does not break or chip. Schott Zwiesel stemware can break, but you will have less breakage with Schott Zwiesel wine glasses than lead crystal wine glasses over time.
