JOSEPHINE Tasting Set
Our Tasting Set is designed for wine lovers who value a wine’s best possible sensory experience as well as for anyone who simply enjoys tasting and sampling wines.
The same wine tastes differently from different glasses. Thus, the right choice of a glass has a very strong influence on the taste of a wine. We believe that precisely four glasses fully enhance Old World and New World wines to their best advantage. That is why our award-winning JOSEPHINE wine glass collection includes exactly four glasses. With the Tasting Set, you can, in each case, find out for yourself which is the right glass for your wine, and get to know your favorite wines in a completely new manner. Our handblown glasses further appeal to all the senses through their design and delicacy, creating a full and exceptional wine experience.
Our Tasting Set consists of the JOSEPHINE glasses No 1-4 offered at a special price. It is an excellent gift for wine lovers and a fine introduction to the world of JOSEPHINE.
JOSEPHINE Tasting Set
Designed by Kurt Josef Zalto, handblown, and handmade in Europe – every single glass is a unique piece.
Our Tasting Set, specially priced, consists of the following four 4 glasses:
JOSEPHINE No 1 – Height 24 cm, Diameter 8.2 cm – 450 ml
JOSEPHINE No 2 – Height 24 cm, Diameter 8.6 cm – 550 ml
JOSEPHINE No 3 – Height 24 cm, Diameter 11 cm – 800 ml
JOSEPHINE No 4 – Height 24 cm, Diameter 8.5 cm – 300 ml
JOSEPHINE No 1: white wine
JOSEPHINE No 1 is ideal for delicate, fresh, and light white wines, particularly those made from varietals such as Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, and Grüner Veltliner as well as Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, or Silvaner. But JOSEPHINE No. 1 is also the perfect companion for young rosés or lighter red wines such as Trollinger, Gamay, and Pinot Noir, as well as for port wines, Madeira, sherry, and the like.
JOSEPHINE No 2: universal
A true polymath, the JOSEPHINE No 2 brings out the best in any medium-bodied wine – white or red. It is also the perfect vehicle for very mature red wines which should not be exposed to too much oxygen. Finer vintage champagnes also find perfect expression in the JOSEPHINE No 2.
JOSEPHINE No 3: red wine
The JOSEPHINE No 3 boasts the greatest capacity and surface area in our collection. Full-bodied, structurally complex red wines, ranging from Burgundy to Bordeaux, are offered ample space to unfold and develop. Although nominally a red-wine glass, the No 3 also offers fuller-bodied and extract-rich white wines the perfect stage.
JOSEPHINE No 4: sparkling wine
The sparkling wine glass par excellence! Whether Champagne or Cava, Franciacorta or Spumante, almost every bubbly will find its ideal companion in the JOSEPHINE No 4. However, sweet wines – mature dessert wines such as Auslese, Beerenauslese, and Trockenbeerenauslese, as well as Eiswein and Sauternes – also benefit immensely from the shape of this glass. May life’s festive moments last forever!
Kurt Josef Zalto - the visionary among glass designers
With his design for a lightweight, thin-walled, yet flexible wineglass, the Austrian glassmaker has gone beyond the current concept of a good glass.
