“Great wines develop even better in the new Denk`Art glass — a great enrichment for the entire glass- and wine-world!”

"Zalto Wine is too short to drink bad wine, it is also too short to drink good wine from bad glasses"
Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg
The Washington Post
"We recently discovered Zalto Denk'Art glassware from Austria, whose elegant, eye-catching design first piqued our interest and whose dishwasher-safe performance won us over. These glasses allow us to swirl and view appealing whites and inhale the bold aromas of reds. If we use them every weekday for a year, we'll have upgraded every sip of wine we drink for just a few dimes a day".
Heinz Reitbauer
Patron of the “Chef’s Hat-crowned” restaurants “Steirereck” and “Pogusch”
“The Denk`Art glass is fleet-footed, very elastic and despite the almost delicate working, surprisingly break-proof. Furthermore, it makes a great visual impact, is contemporary and all features considered superior to all other glasses.”
Marisa D'Vari
"The thin glass showed the color beautifully and the shape enhanced the aroma. Even better, I found they are dishwasher safe and resist clouding. If you love wine, Zalto offers a stylish and modern alternative to fine stemware currently on the market". A Wine Story
S. Irene Virbila
Los Angeles Times
“Thomas Keller is using them at the French Laundry and Per Se. They’re on tables at Eleven Madison Park, Bouley and Le Bernadin, too. Even Robert Parker has given Zalto an enthusiastic quote. Sommeliers are crazy about Zalto glasses.”
Fiona Beckett
“Lovely to handle – featherlight, very fine-rimmed and curiously flexible...compared to the Riedel Sommelier range they’re very reasonably priced.”
Jamie Goode
The Sunday Express, UK
“I’ve recently come across another glass manufacturer whose glasses I really love: Zalto. These are truly beautiful hand blown glasses that are amazingly light and delicate, yet quite flexible and resilent too.”
Rudolphine and F.X.Pichler
Winemakers from the Wachau
“For us the burgundy-glass by Hans Denk –Denk`Art- is the most ingenious glass for Grüner Veltliner. Especially for more mature, particularly premium and concentrated `Smaragd`-wines. For the wine it creates an enamel, profound fruit and elegance in implausible extent. We are enthusiastic.”
Olly Smith
The Daily Mail
“… there are plenty of other good wine-glass manufacturers out there, from Dartington to Schott Zwiesel. I rate the Austrian company Zalto particularly highly. Its glasses are delicate and elegant to hold, and beautifully designed for enjoying wine. The one that catches my eye is the Universal glass, which is designed for both red and white wine.”
Alice Feiring
“Its stem was bouncy, balanced and fine as a violin bow, light as a hummingbird’s bones. Its rim was as honed as my favorite knife. This wasn’t merely a wine glass; it was a precision instrument that bordered on the spiritual...”
David Schildknecht
Robert Parker´s Wine Advocate
“... I´ve been doing a few comparisons with the Zalto and other glasses... I´m impressed enough to covet some Zalto.”

The Fine Wine Experience (Hong Kong)
“We chose Zalto for their fine wine experience enhancing technical shape, their beautiful aesthetic and their sheer hand-blown artisanal quality. When opening fine and rare wines, the important last step is the right glass. That’s why we invested in Zalto glasses for our events, and that’s why we recommend and sell them to our customers.”
Mandy Chan
Ginsberg + Chan (Hong Kong)
“We love using Zalto glasses for our tastings and other events. There is a noticeable difference in the way the glass feels in your hand and how the wine moves within it. We believe this elevates the experience for our guests. And sets us apart.”
Timothy Feather
Claret Wines (Macau)
“Zalto glasses are simply the best way to enjoy wine. As a wine drinker for years I have been waiting for a glass which fully allows the wine to open and express itself in the way the winemaker would want. For anyone who spends money on a decent bottle of wine, Zalto glasses should be mandatory.”
Stephen W.
Private Client (Hong Kong)
“Having used Zalto glasses for 2 years now, I have been extremely impressed by their performance in bringing out the best in each wine. They are beautiful to look at and surprisingly robust especially considering their feather light feel. A satisfied Customer!”


Robert miller
“The glasses from Zalto will inspire you and force you to re-evaluate your relationship with whatever stemware is in your collection. While priced at a premium, this still provides exceptional value compared to the top line offerings from Riedel, Spiegelau, et al. Elegant in your hand like in a way that no other stem achieves, this glass elevates even the most pedestrian of wines to Grand Cru status. The Zalto glass brings a sensuality and seductiveness to wine drinking that is missed in these days of exhibitionist wines. Drawing you in closer, it whispers the pedigree of what's in the bowl, and allows the wine to tell its tale - heartfelt, honest, and transparent.”
Jancis Robinson MW
“What I love is that Zalto glasses are the thinnest and most delicate glasses I have come across, yet seem springy and almost elastic in the hand... Best of all, the manufacturers say they are best washed in a regular dishwasher. ......they are cheaper than many of Riedel's top models and would give any serious wine lover a real thrill over the closeness of contact they offer.”
Francois Mauss
President of the «Grand Jury European»
“I didn’t think, that there would be anything better on the glass-market ... this glass is. Moreover it has something erotic ...”
Andrew Jefford
“If you’re looking for glasses and your budget tiptoes into hand-blown territory, though, these are, truly, the best I’ve ever used.”
