Recently, the Sommelier Society of America celebrated the final classes before the holiday hiatus with Director of Education Rudiger Eilers (above) giving students an allocation of Stolzle Glassware. Classes start up again for the organization in early January with the final exam set for Feb 11th. Kristy MacDonald, sommelier at famed Chef Thomas Keller's Per Se NY was the instructor for the evening.
With a legacy dating back to 1954, the Sommelier Society of America today is a locus for top-notch wine education courses in New York City. Unlike other certification programs, the SSA course is designed for serious wine professionals who want to study the trade in one of the most thrilling and eclectic wine markets in the world.
Stolzle USA is proud of its relationship with the Sommelier Society of America and looks forward to continuing to support their efforts in wine education.
A great whiskey deserves a great glass!
We loved it that when Whisky Advocate named George Dickel 13 Year Old Bottled in Bond its 2019 Whisky of the Year that they presented it the best glass - the world-famous Glencairn glass produced in our Stolzle Lausitz factory! Congratulations to the George Dickel brand and we're honored to keep such company!

Stolzle USA's Jay Allie recently paid a visit to the Boston location of famed steakhouse Smith & Wollensky to check in with their Vice President of Culinary, Chef Matt King. The steakhouse chain has been using our 22 oz. Event all-purpose glass for more than 15 years.
Here's what Matt had to say about his relationship with Stolzle:

The ambition for the Stolzle brand has always been to deliver the "best product" and at the end of May, Stölzle Lausitz celebrated the 130th anniversary of doing just that at the company's location in Weißwasser / Saxony with a big celebration. In the traditional centre of the glass industry, the company is now the last remaining glass manufacturer with international significance. Customers and companions of the brand traveled to Weißwasser to celebrate this commemorative birthday together.
