Thin and durable glass How a wine is enjoyed when drinking from a wine glass is also about the balance between the bowl, shaft and foot. “A good wine glass should be nice to hold and beautiful to look at”, says Malin. The choice to use lead-free crystal was important for STORSINT. “Lead is a metal that is harmful to both people and the environment, and we do not allow it in any products. The lead-free crystal glass has a fine luster, is thin and strong and can be machine-washed”, says Malin as she toasts two glasses lightly against each other, spreading a nice and crisp reverberation
For Malin, the collaboration with the sommeliers meant that some of her conceptions about wine changed. For example, that champagne or other sparkling wine should always be enjoyed from tall flute glasses with plenty of room for the bubbles. “It’s true about younger wines, but we learned that an older champagne is more aromatic, and can therefore be served in a wine glass with a larger bowl to develop its full potential”, says Malin and adds: "In the world of wine, there’s always something to learn."
