All Zalto glasses are mouth-blown, lead-free and dishwasher-safe.
I think the Zalto wine glasses are great. They’re surprisingly lightweight and provide a vastly better wine drinking experience versus other stems I own e.g. Riedel Sommelier series. If you’re considering the Zalto, don’t hesitate buying a set, you won’t regret these wine stems.
Unclear if I have the olfactory senses to truly appreciate the glasses - but they look and feel fantastic. One of the shipments (I bought several different types) came with couple of broken stems - but AldoSohm customer service took care of it with no muss and fuss.
If you’ve never tried wine out of a zalto glass, you haven’t lived! It is def a different experience. My first time was at blue hill stone barns (top 10 restaurant in country, maybe world, I forgot). I said I had to have these glasses. Very pricy but since I’m locked up all year in my house, why not! Worth every penny. Cheers
