Technical perfection is the basic principle of the Zalto Glass Manufactury. Zalto Glasses have always been produced following a tradition of using only the most highly skilled glass-blowers working with a selection of the best raw materials. This tradition, and the resulting fineness of each glass, echoes the delicate virtuosity of the great Venetian glass artists of the Renaissance. 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. In the northern part of Lower-Austria the tradition of glass blowing goes back to the early 14th century. The Zalto family, a glassmaking dynasty whose roots reach back to Venice, settled down in this region six generations ago. Since then Zalto has been producing high quality hand-blown glass in Neunagelberg. You can watch a great video of Zalto Glass production on Vimeo.
