I was “bitten by the wine bug” when I was 19, visiting a vineyard in Italy. Many years later I joined Le Bernadin, opened Aldo Sohm Wine Bar, created a Laguiole winekey and partnered with Zalto and Sohm & Kracher.
Recently I am honored to have been awarded M. Chapoutier prize for the Best Sommelier of Les Grandes Tables du Monde in 2019 and Wine Spectator’s Grand Award for Le Bernardin's restaurant wine program in 2021.
This year, my TV series "An Austrian Wine Journey" ("Eine österreichische Weinreise") has debuted!
To this day, I am incredibly lucky to have my hobby as my career!
Light as a feather, but sturdy. Beautifully proportioned, nicely balanced in the hand. The ‘Universal’ has become my everyday glass; I also love the Bordeaux and Burgundy Zalto models and use them when the wine calls out for more room to spread its wings.
The assorted Riedel glassware went to the basement when Zalto came to town. These are the best!
Granted, I am extremely biased, but these are the most elegant glasses I’ve ever used. I just gave a set of six to a dear wine collector friend, and I was lucky enough to be able to drink from them recently. I’m going to start slowly, ordering my own!
The Zalto Universal is the best all around glass on the market. Also the most beautiful and elegant. Everything seems to taste a little better in these glasses.
I wasn’t sure if these would live up to the hype, but once you try them you’ll understand. They are so light and well designed to bring out the aromas and flavors of the wine.
I have Riedel varietal glasses as well, which I was so pround of, but now that I have Zaltos, I’m not sure I can go back. The Riedels I have aren’t handmade so they are much heavier and just clunkier. Comparing side by side, Zaltos are a work of art. Also, once you watch the video of how they are made you will respect all the hard work that goes into making a glass. I can’t wait to grab a few more once they’re back in stock.
These are the best glasses in the world. They are sold out everywhere so if you see them available, buy them. They showed up very fast. Great service!
The best wine glass ever!
Our second set of Zalto’s and could not be happier. Simply the finest glassware made!! Excellent customer service and lightning fast shipping from Adlo Sohm!!
Great wine glass!
Hard to find glasses were delivered on time. Easy process. Would highly recommend purchasing from this company
The Burgundy glasses are truly stunning! Customer service was top notch, I bought 6 glasses and one of them arrived with a broken stem (they are so fragile, but so worth it) and when I reached out about a replacement I was sent a new glass within hours.
Rapid and safe delivery
This is my third such purchase. This is the best wine key anywhere, and the design by Aldo is beautiful. Do like me, buy one and take it to your dinner reservation at Le Bernadin and ask "The Mayor" Also Somm to open your bottles that meal. Even more special that way.
It’s great to see that this glass was in stock and available for quick shipping. I unfortunately broke one in my collection and can’t live without them.
They are the perfect pairing with Aldo’s wine selections.
Beautifully crafted, so remarkably light compared to our previous white wine glasses. Very elegant way of drinking white wines and champagne!
Very lightweight and yet luxurious in feel. The wine tastes better in these glasses. Perfect size!
Terrific high quality glasses. Stronger than they look and easy to clean. Work well for all types of wine.
Engaging, educational, and fun!
