An Homage to Aroma
SPIEGELAU Willsberger Anniversary
All of forty years ago, a revolutionary idea swept the wine world: wine glasses with a wider bowl allowed the wine more “headspace” to unfurl its character. The result replaced the classic wine glass with egg-shaped bowl that had previously been in widespread use.
Today, of course, wine glasses with angular or “diamond” shape bowls have become popular with connoisseurs. The glassware designs in the SPIEGELAU Willsberger Anniversary series pay tribute to their famous forebear in shape and quality, but are industrially manufactured, making them immensely affordable. Willsberger Anniversary is SPIEGELAU’s new reinterpretation of the original Willsberger designs, every bit as fine and delicate as their ground-breaking ancestor. SPIEGELAU was the first manufacturer to produce Johann Willsberger’s mouth-blown glass series, with shapes and lines that are still prized as superlative by wine experts today. So imagine the astonishment of the wine community when SPIEGELAU launched its first successful industrial production of this highly complex form!
