Artis, the leading distributor of glassware and tableware, has announced four new additions to its Vinea range of Luigi Bormioli stemware for 2017.
Vinea is a collection of machine-blown stemware that is elegant, sophisticated and highly translucent. It is manufactured in high-tech lead-free crystal glass using Bormioli’s patented SON.hyx® technique. This gives these lightweight stem glasses the characteristics of mouth-blown glass combining strength and elegance.
Independent research has proven that wine changes its taste and aroma depending on the shape of the glass it is served in. In Vinea, Luigi Bormioli has harnessed that knowledge and designed glassware to complement specific Italian wine varietals.
Each of the 11 Vinea pieces has been designed to best highlight the sensorial perceptions of the grape types. There are glasses for Malvasia/Orvieto; Montepulciano/Merlot; Cannonau; Amarone; Brunello di Montalcino; Nebbiolo/Barolo; Prosecco/Coppa spumante and Trebbiano.
The four new additions for 2017 are the 55cl Cannonau (list price £4.64) and the 60cl Amarone (£5.20). Plus there is a new 27cl flute (£3.29) and a stylishly shaped 30cl coupe (£5.30), which is pictured above.
The complete Vinea collection, including the latest additions may be found in the illustrated 2017 Artis catalogue. For your own copy, call 020 8391 5544. Alternatively, it is available to download online at www.artis-uk.com/downloads.
