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.
“Gold” was specially designed to bring out the brilliance in sparkling and sweet wines. Its tall, flute-like shape helps conserve bubbles while the tulip shape and waist hold in delicate aromas. The straight-sided, narrow rim brightens acidity in sweet wines to keep them in balance.
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 "GOLD" WINES
Sparkling: Champagne, Proesseco, Cava, etc
Sweet: Sauternes, sweet Riesling, Tokaji
