Pairing wine expertise and refined design, the Jancis Robinson collection is the result of a truly collaborative cross-disciplinary partnership between the celebrated product designer Richard Brendon and the most respected wine critic and journalist in the world. As well as being functionally perfect, the Jancis Robinson collection has been meticulously designed to look and feel refined, elegant and timeless. The ultra-fine, but remarkably strong, mouth blown crystal puts the wine lover in intimate contact with the wine, enhancing the tasting experience.
Each piece in the Jancis Robinson collection is expertly mouth-blown in an area of Europe where the craft has been perfected over hundreds of years. The glassblowers are masters in their field and it was imperative they had the skill to make glass as fine and light as Richard and Jancis required for the collection. The trickiest bit was getting the quality and weight of the products just right. They went through many rounds of prototypes to ensure they will delivered a final product that met every single one of requirements perfectly.
The Wine Glass is at the heart of the collection and has been specifically designed to offer the best tasting experience for every wine, whatever its style or strength, including Champagne, port, sherry and beyond. Carefully designed shape of the ultra-fine tulip-shaped bowl of the stemmed Wine Glass allows the wine to breathe and captures its array of aromas, enhancing the experience of every sip. Finest Crystal – The glasses are very light, perfectly balanced and of a quality that can only be achieved by mouth blowing. The rim of the wine glass is particularly fine to minimise the amount of glass that comes between the wine and the palate, significantly enhancing the drinking experience.
