Wine & More
WINE & MORE derives from the liaison between sensuality and functionality. The result is a delightfully designed range of brilliant, sparkling goblets, carafes and decanters made of Tritan®-crystal glass.

The demands made on a glass by spirits and cocktails are just as high as those made by wine. Nevertheless, SCHOTT ZWIESEL has taken up the cause, with BAR PROFESSIONALS, to meet the needs of every kind of drink.

At home with the best
Wherever you travel – worldwide – international top class hotels and restaurants serve their drinks in crystal glasses made by Zwiesel Kristallglas. For the demands made on the product are always the same – high, higher and the highest. Throughout the world, we are probably the most frequently called upon, premium cut glass producer in top class hotels and restaurants when it comes to dining table, drinks and living culture. All of this is based on the foundation of almost 140 years of glass making tradition in the Bavarian Forest. The location and the people of Zwiesel are, for us, the source of this tradition, to which we feel committed. The fact that, as a proprietor-run medium-sized enterprise, we have succeeded, by virtue of the attractiveness and quality of our products, in gaining recognition all over the world is the best proof that this tradition is properly understood to this very day.
Two successful partners: Tim Raue and SCHOTT ZWIESEL
With Tim Raue, the SCHOTT ZWIESEL brand has succeeded in winning one of the currently most influential master chefs as its partner. Among restaurant critics, he is regarded as one of the best of the younger generation of top class chefs. The highlight of his career so far was when he was awarded the first Michelin star in the year 2007, as well as being recognised with 18 points in the Gault Millau and his election as "Chef of the Year" in the Gault Millau in the same year.
Only five months after the opening of the Restaurant MA Tim Raue, he once more received a Michelin star and 18 points in the Gault Millau. Since November 2009, the chef is again a potential hot contender for a second Michelin star. An astonishing career for one of the most extravagant newcomers among the younger avant-garde – after all, the prominent cook grew up in the somewhat rough district of Berlin Kreuzberg, where he was a member of a neighbourhood gang.
Since July 2010, Tim Raue together with his wife Marie-Anne has been running the Restaurant Tim Raue in Berlin Kreuzberg. With this, the two of them fulfilled their lifelong dream. From the culinary point of view, the cook remains true to his line of approach: in his restaurant, he continues to serve food inspired by the Asian cuisine, which can be characterised as a combination of Japanese product perfection, Thai aroma and Chinese cuisine philosophy.

Enough space for 8000 persons
The convention centre in Dublin
One of our latest references is the Convention Centre in Dublin: On September 7th, 2010 the building at the exposed position in the docklands of Dublin was officially inaugurated. The Convention Centre offers 22 multifunctional rooms for events, trade fairs, trainings, conferences, concerts and performances, etc. The largest room offers space for 8000 persons. Meals are prepared already from 10 persons upwards – in this way, the house fulfils the different desires of its guests. This gastronomic challange requires strong partners: Zwiesel Kristallglas is one of them. We have equipped the Top Restaurant with the series PURE LOOP of the brand SCHOTT ZWIESEL. As special design for the convention center our engravers finish the water glass with extra glass cutting.

An alliance for optimal wine enjoyment
"Being a connoisseur and appreciating enjoyment always has to do with respect for the material and the joy of sharing. That's why ecology is such an important issue for the VDP. And we are happy when, not only in the field of wine growing, people are thinking about how we can make a better job of it."
Chairman of the German Association of Prize-winning and Quality Wine Growers (VDP)
For perfect enjoyment, the right glass is just as important as the choice of the wine. For this reason, Zwiesel Kristallglas and the VDP have forged an alliance for optimal wine enjoyment. The two brands ZWIESEL 1872 and SCHOTT ZWIESEL represent both the traditional art of glass making as well as a high standard of technical know-how and competent on matters concerning the enjoyment of wine. The VDP includes about 200 of Germany's best wine growing estates as its members, whose motto is "Class not Mass", and who belong to the best ambassadors for German wine throughout the world.
Two success factors determine the cooperation between the two partners: excellent, high-quality products and a high level of expertise. For both of us, the absolutely strict orientation towards quality forms the basis for our work – in wine growing as well as in glass making, whereby the real quality is founded on constant performance over many decades.
Together with the VDP Quality Wine Growers Association, we have developed a premium wine glass which optimally brings out the rich taste of the wine. The glass is the ingenious, simple quintessence of the complex interaction between the shape of the glass and the enjoyment of the wine. The brilliant clarity of the crystal glasses makes the colour shades of the wine in all their genuine nuances visible. Golden-yellow or purple, the noble wines sparkle in the finely shapes goblets.
