This Crystalline stem glass is manufactured using Xtreme® technology that is extraordinarily light, elegant, easy to handle and yet extremely durable.
The Etoile Collection is the result of a joint collaboration between Italesse and the Maitres Cuisiniers de France. Mouth blown, the original Etoile range was too expensive for general restaurant and home use so the Maitres Cuisiniers de France approached Italesse asking if they could take the perfect attributes of the Etoile glasses into a more mass produced environment without compromising the design.
The mission was certainly not easy especially given the extremely high demands and expectations of the French masters. Prototype after prototype was developed, continuously fine-tuning the process until it was concluded with the hallmark Italesse result: aesthetics combined with functionality. A beautiful and reliable stem glass that is both durable yet light to hold has been created. The shape and features are ideal for wine tasting and, importantly, suitable for all types of wine.
The Etoile range of glasses are available in 2 forms. The more expensive Excellence collection is mouthblown and handcrafted, each glass lovingly shaped and moulded to fit perfectly in your hand and to enhance the drinking experience. The Standard collection is at a lower price point and is machined in Xtreme Cystalline glass for toughness and durability and to match as close as possible the detail of the handmade Excellence equivalent.
