Zalto Gravitas Omega glass
Grounded to earth through the eschewal of a foot at the base of its stem, the Gravitas glass both catches and demands the attention of every wine connoisseur. This precarious balance commands a similar respect for the wine itself.
The Zalto Gravitas Omega is not quite a glass or a decanter. It is simply unique. Aerate your wine by rolling the Gravitas Omega in circles on a flat surface. It does have a flat spot on the bowl to prevent it from rolling off the table or to rest! Perfect for red wines or for experimenting with your favourite beverage.
In a Gravitas glass, the wine reveals itself in all its color against a bright background, coats the surface of the sidewalls and instantly imparts its inner character. This unique shape, which incorporates the bowl of the respected Burgundy glass, requires the connoisseur to pose it on the table with the same care they afford the wine. We have also seen this glass used in restaurants for fine cognac and armagnacs.

- The glasses can be polished with a dry cotton dish towel or microfiber towel.
- Drying the glasses should be done carefully and without causing pressure or most importantly torque. Twisting the bowl while holding the base is likely to cause breakage.
