AS GLASS...OR NOT
Midnightsun Designs ISO Wine Tasting Glass
those interested in blind wine tasting, this black, opaque
wine glass by Swedish company Midnightsun Designs is made
exactly for that purpose. Blown by master glassblowers
at the Swedish Älghult Glassworks, the ISO Wine Tasting
Glass is made out of a dark, lead-free crystal so that
tasters will not be influenced by the color of the wine.
However, many experienced wine tasters do take color into
consideration when judging wine and might deplore this
aspect. Neatniks might also find the glass frustrating,
as the dark surface is prone to reflecting fingerprints.
do, however, appreciate the glass’s narrowed top,
which concentrates the wine’s aromas and makes for
a better tasting. It is slightly impractical as a wine-tasting
glass, but we think it makes for a quaint and quirky wine
glass collector’s item. Price is $30 per glass.
