To meet the highest demands requires the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics. This combined with an approach to superior quality creates something exceptional – Zalto Denk`Art.
Appreciated by connoisseurs and gourmets Zalto Denk`Art is the benchmark for glass-culture.
Technical perfection is the basic principle of the Zalto Glass House. The tradition of using only the most highly skilled glass-blowers is reflected in the fineness of each Zalto glass. It echoes the delicate virtuosity of the great Venetian glass artists of the Renaissance.
In the northern part of LowerAustria the tradition of glass blowing goes back to the early 14th century. Since then glass-blowers have been producing high quality handblown glass in this region, which has made a name for itself among bon vivants beyond all borders.
Despite its feather-light weight and delicate edges, the Denk`Art series of glasses maintains all the best attributes of a modern glass as far as care and longevity are concerned. Denk`Art glasses may be washed in a dishwasher and should be considered your everyday glass as well as the glass to use for your most special occasions.
They are produced without the addition of lead oxide and are resistant against clouding
Angles – Perfect Flavour
The development of the Denk`Art series was as influenced by the earth as by the universe beyond. The curve of the bowls are tilted at the angles of 24°, 48° and 72°, which are in accordance to the tilt angles of the earth. The ancient Romans utilized this triumvirate of angles with their supply repositories, finding that produce stayed fresh for a longer time, and that it also showed improved taste. Due to these cosmic parallels, we believe that a wine can reach its utmost potential in a Denk`Art glass, developing everything that is possible in the nose as well as on the palate.
The Wine Priest – Father Denk
The development of the Zalto Denk`Art glasses is influenced by the capacious knowledge of the priest Hans Denk, who has spent decades in the study and tasting of wines, and is one of the most valued and inspirational wine experts in Austria. With the brand Denk`Art we pay homage to the mentor of these remarkable glasses.
“Clear supremacy of the development of taste and bouquet,” as Father Denk himself has put it, are the advantages of the series Denk`Art; a fact which has been attested to by well-known sommeliers and wine connoisseurs around the world.
