how to make good wine taste great
It was not a fluke, the wine is more enjoyable, and it was so much fun introducing other friends and family to them, as Henri had to us. So we bought more. Now we have them for various types of wine. All the stemware you see on our table in the photographs here is from Eisch. We started giving them as gifts as well, wanting our friends to enjoy them - and wanting them available to us when we are entertained by them! We have so much fun doing the taste comparison with our guests, because no one believes that the same wine will taste better in a different glass!
Now we have hutches and cabinets full of our previous crystal stemware, which rarely gets used, because everyone always wants the best wine experience they can have, and that requires drinking from these amazing Eisch glasses. I have taken some of the images and information found on the Eisch website to post for you here, explaining why the wine is better in their crystal:
Eisch Breathable Crystal Stemware from Germany
Eisch Breathable wine glasses are made from a special process that changes the molecular structure in the glass allowing it to breath. A wine poured into an Eisch breathable glass for just 2 to 4 minutes will show signs of aeration equivalent to the same wine that has been decanted and aerated for 1 to 2 hours. This fully natural process takes place within the wine itself in just minutes. The original character and structure of the wine are preserved, yet the wine’s aroma and palate impression become more open, generous and polished. The Breathable Glass does not lose its effectiveness ever! It does not have any special cleaning requirements, so you can wash it as you would other quality crystal glass.
We, our family and friends can vouch for the fact that you will truly find your wine tastes the same, but better, with these glasses. And we have no vested interest in making this claim. (Although Eisch if you see this, a few new sets of your stemware would be appreciated!!) With Christmas coming before we know it, you might want to consider these as gifts for your wine-loving friends, or for yourself. Let me know if you do!
Cheers! Sante! Salut! ChinChin!
