Lucaris ELEMENTS INSPIRATION
Drawing inspiration from Traditional Chinese Medicine and Astrology, Ayurveda as well as Western conceptions of the elements, we designed glass shapes that would bring out that “element” in any wine style. Each glass is multi-purpose and can be used for red, white, rosé and even sparkling wines.
“Air” represents the qualities of motion, energy and fragrance, so the Air glass is designed with a round but tapered bowl for easy swirling without overexposing the wine to air or heat. The narrow rim focuses aromas and brightens acidity.
EXTRA WIDE BOWL
The air also has an extra wide bowl for easy swirling to release aromas.
The Air, Water and Gold glasses feature “waists:” a tight curves to help preserve aromas while the wine is still, only aerating it when it's being sipped
TYPICAL "AIR" WINES
Aromatic whites: Gewurztraminer, Muscat, Torrontes, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling
Fragrant Reds: Red Burgundy and Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo (Barolo + Barbaresco), Etna Rosso
