Our wine glasses

JOSEPHINE No 1 – White

CHF 80.00

Handmade white wine glasses | Designed by Kurt Josef Zalto*

The JOSEPHINE No 1 is ideal for delicate, fruity, and rather light white wines as well as rosés. Young Pinot Blancs, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blancs or Grüner Veltliners make a focused, balanced, and concentrated impression in the glass. Lighter Chasselas, Müller-Thurgau, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Silvaner wines taste equally as good in the JOSEPHINE No 1 as do lightly chilled red wines such as Trollinger, Gamay and Pinot Noir. The glass is versatile: even Port wine, Madeira and Sherry are shown to their best advantage. However, the No 1 shows its particular strength with fine Rieslings – including those with some residual sweetness and a lot of finesse. Definitely check it out!

JOSEPHINE No 2 – Universal

CHF 80.00

Handmade universal wine glasses | Designed by Kurt Josef Zalto*

As a true universal genius, the JOSEPHINE No 2 brings every medium-weight white or red wine to its optimal development. From Pinot Blanc and Viognier to Sangiovese and Tempranillo - the glass is convincing for a wide range of wines. It is thereby practical, and emphasizes subtle notes as well as the nuances of more complex wines. Mature red wines, to which not too much oxygen should be added, and high-quality vintage champagnes also demonstrate their full potential in the JOSEPHINE No 2. Those who don’t have too much time to consider their choice of glasses would do best to pick this multi-award-winning universal glass. And then: simply enjoy!!

JOSEPHINE No 3 – Red

CHF 80.00

Handmade red wine glasses | Designed by Kurt Josef Zalto*

Our JOSEPHINE No 3 glass is a proven Grand Seigneur. It has a large surface area, so that full-bodied and complex red wines have enough contact with oxygen. Kurt Josef Zalto has succeeded in squaring the circle with this glass – a combination of a Bordeaux and Burgundy glass. Full-bodied, concentrated and seductive Pinots, Bordeaux blends, Baroli, Syrah and the like can unfold in the JOSEPHINE No 3 in an expansive manner. Moreover, this masterpiece offers the perfect stage for full-bodied and extracted white wines, such as barrique-aged Chardonnays, as well as icon wines such as those from Napa Valley, Oregon, South America, South Africa and Australia.

JOSEPHINE No 4 – Champagne

CHF 80.00

Handmade champagne glasses | Designed by Kurt Josef Zalto*

Sparkling wines such as Champagne, Sekt, Franciacorta and Cava are often related to a special occasion and deserve an elegant glass that allows them to shine. The JOSEPHINE No 4 impresses through its unusual shape and lies perfectly balanced in the hand. The same surface area as the universal wine glass and its deeply pointed tip at the bottom of the bowl serve to highlight the fine mousse of mature champagnes as well as the gentle perlage of other sparkling wines. The narrowing towards the rim of the mouth promotes the richness of the bouquet and transports it in a focused manner towards the nose. Sweet wines such as Auslese, ice wines, Tokaji or Sauternes also benefit from the shape of this unique glass. Let festive moments last forever!

Every glass in our collection is skillfully mouth-blown by our adept artisans. This meticulous process ensures that each piece is a distinctive work of art, celebrating uniqueness and craftsmanship.

Our decanters & red wine sets

JOSEPHINE Decanter – Brilliant

CHF 180.00

CHF 180.00

Handmade Brilliant decanter | Designed by Kurt Josef Zalto*

Inspired by the shape of a brilliant, the mouth-blown Brilliant Decanter presents your wines elegantly and stylishly.

With its minimalist design and delicate structure, the Brilliant Decanter elicits the last tasteful secret from top wines. The decanter optimizes aeration, ensuring every flavor note is drawn from the wine. In addition to the characteristic bend of the JOSEPHINE collection, the bottom of the decanter slopes into a cone. This defining design element ensures a spiral-shaped swirl that rapidly enriches wine with oxygen as soon as it is poured. The depth of the cone creates an unprecedented ease of control and stability when pouring.

The shape and lightness of the decanter allow for elegant pouring with just one hand.

JOSEPHINE Decanter – Brilliant Magnum

CHF 270.00

CHF 270.00

Handmade Brilliant decanter | Designed by Kurt Josef Zalto*

The self-confident size stands in exciting contrast to the filigree structure, while the minimalist design underscores its impressive appearance. With its large base, the decanter is particularly suitable for the optimal aeration of young wines.

For the design, Kurt Josef Zalto was inspired by a brilliant cut diamond, which for him symbolizes the pure, beautiful and everlasting. In addition to the characteristic kink of the JOSEPHINE collection, the base of the decanter has a cone, which ensures optimal aeration of the wine during pouring by means of a spiral-shaped swirl as well as emphasizing the tonal nuances of the wine.

The shape and lightness of the decanter allow for effortless, elegant pouring.

Care products: Linen Cloth and Brush

CHF 35.00

For glass polishing, there is nothing better than a soft linen cloth, which you should purchase especially and exclusively for this purpose - quasi as the accompaniment for your glass. The linen cloth from Josephinenhütte is produced in an Italian weaving mill in fourth generation, it meets the demands of professional sommeliers and gets better with every wash.

The brush could well become your favourite care utensil: In a matter of seconds, it absorbs those last drops of water that like to stay at the bottom of the glass, thus preventing the formation of limescale deposits. The brush should only be used for absorbing the droplets of water and should then be left either lying or hanging to dry.

Linen cloth: Pure linen made in Italy 75x55 cm. Machine washable to 60°C.

Brush: Handmade in Franconia, natural fibre, wooden handle (FSC-certified), black lacquered, size no. 6, length 19 cm.
