Ratings & Reviews
Recommend these glasses.
Very nice glasses - appear similar to Riedels but according to other
reviewers are more durable! Have only just received and started using them
so time will tell as to their durability, but they have been given the thumbs up by
my wine drinking friends.
Great Wine Glass at a Great Price
by Steve Winkler
The Scott Zwiesel Forte glass is our family’s go to glass for all red wines at our house. The bowl is large enough to allow good wine to breathe. The rim is thin for a great mouthfeel. The stem is sturdy and shorter than some glasses making cleanup easier since they will fit into the top level of our dishwasher. We have had good experience with the durability of the titanium crystal; and finally the price is really great for a glass of this quality. Highest recommendations.

We are not sophisticated, we just know what we like. These glasses are excellent, deep, and balanced in the hand. They are a bit harder to clean because of the height. We like to hand wash and dry.
all purpose wine glass
As a wine collector for a number of years, I have purchase many of the Schott Zwiesel Titan Forte Bordeaux wine glasses and can confirm that for the price point, it is one of the most classiest and elegant wine glasses that I have encountered. In fact with its lightness and shape, I use it as an all purpose tasting container and quite frankly, use it more for tasting red and white Burgundies preferring it over the traditional larger bowl shape Burgundy glass.
The bottom line is I highly recommend it to any wine connoisseur who wants an elegant glass that shows the wine well!
Yes ... We break a wine glass occassionally but have found the Tritan Forte's to be much tougher yet still an excellent crystal glass in both our restaurant and home use.
They stand up to both hand and dishwasher cleaning very well.
There is a huge difference between drinking good wine in a crystal vs glass wine glasses!!
Schott Zwiesel, Forte Bordeaux/Cabernet Glasses
by Eleanor -
After breaking many Reidels, we discovered Schott Zwiesel wine glasses. They are elegant but durable, and the choice of many tasting rooms. The Bordeaux/Cabernet size is great for use as an all purpose wine glass.
I have owned various sizes of Schott Zwiesel wine glasses for many years now, and agree with other reviewers that they are outstanding glasses, especially for the low cost. I have the merlot, chardonnay, burgundy, and two other sizes that no longer are available (too bad). They all rival any of the best glasses I've ever used at high end restaurants and wine bars, and are very durable. The only reason any of them have broken is because of an accident. I'm now excited to be purchasing the bordeauux size glasses to round out my collection!

I have a set of these that I have had for years... Love um... great everyday glass!
At $10 a stem you can't go wrong!

These glasses are a very nice size for most of the reds we enjoy and are comfortable to hold. This is our second set and we'd recommend them for everyday use, as well as parties. Would definitely buy more.
Great Wine Glasses
We purchased these, and also the Burgundy and one of their white wine glass sets as well. The glasses are high quality. While they are dishwasher safe, we always have washed them by hand. This is usually where we break them... dropping them too hard into the rinse sink or slipping out of our hands while washing.
They are a good value. This line - the Tritan Forte - are larger glasses than we had thought when ordering but we've come to like them.
It is nice to have a non-lead crystal alternative and something for everyday use.

We have used these for years and find them very durable. Have only broken one in 5 years. Dishwasher safe as far as we can determine. Highly recommended for all around use and even some abuse.
Red wine lovers choice

These are the very best wine glasses you will ever own! Very durable!!!
Great Wine Glasses
These are great wine glasses - unlike the ones made by the company whose name starts with "R", the Schott tritan glasses do not fog up because of cleaning in the dishwasher. They are stronger, too.
I Love These Glasses!
I've been using these glasses (I also have the white wine, merlot, and white burgundy ones) on a daily basis and they're terrific. They have broken on occasion (typically at the stem) but they are dishwasher safe and look and feel nice. Great glasses for the money!

This is our second set (they do break when dropped on a ceramic floor). They are great glasses and a good value.
