Here at Stölzle, we love great regional wines. The great news, especially for eastern U.S. wine lovers, is that some America’s best regional wineries are located close by in Virginia.
With names that run from Barboursville Winery to Trump Vineyards you can explore and enjoy some of this country’s best, according to a recent article in Tasting Table. And, in addition to delicious wines you can also find great values among the varietals that span from albarino and viognier to cabernet franc and merlot.
There’s even a great sparkler from the estate of a certain President (not named Jefferson). According to the Tasting Table article “…a winery that Gayot reports has produced some of the highest-rating sparkling wines in the game.”
To discover the beauty of wines from Virginia is also a reminder to discover the difference a great wine glass can make to your wine-drinking experience. At Stölzle, we offer a wide variety of wine glass collections suitable to tastes – and budgets – of all types. One of our favorites and most versatile is our EXPERIENCE Collection. Created in cooperation with sommeliers, EXPERIENCE was originally designed to enhance the enjoyment of different Rieslings, the range has now been expanded to bring that same distinctiveness to both whites and reds of all types. Our EXPERIENCE is a perfect wine glass collection to bring out all the nuances of whichever varietal happens to be your favorite.
So, when looking for a great new wine region to try, why not consider planning a trip to Virginia? And when you’re planning to upgrade your wine drinking experience, you may also want to consider EXPERIENCE from Stölzle Lausitz.

Recently we came across an article that speaks about chilling your red wines and the best way to drink them after they have been chilled. Being of an approachable mindset, that article resonated with us because, after all, at Stölzle Lausitz maximizing the enjoyment of our wine is always our top priority.
Maximizing the enjoyment when drinking chilled reds may have a lot to do the timing of when we drink our red wines after they have been chilled, according to the folks at tastingtable.com. But no matter if your timing is good or not, one thing is for sure when it comes to maximizing your wine tasting enjoyment – glassware matters. And, at Stölzle Lausitz, we have always got just the right glass for you.
Whether you favor a larger capacity red wine glass or a smaller-sized white wine glass, or perhaps even a single, all-purpose glass, we’ve always got the right glass for the occasion.
So when it comes to your reds – chilled, slightly cooled or at room temperature – we have the perfect glass for you.
More smiles on more faces.

Nothing beats a crisp, refreshing white wine, especially as the temperatures climb as the seasons change. But – just being honest – our heart belongs to reds. And reds of all types. And we realize that many out there feel exactly the same way about their whites. We get it.
That’s why the recent article by the online site Drizly caught our attention: 5 Red Wines for White Wine Drinkers. In case you’re not familiar with Drizly, besides being a favorite of ours, they are the largest online marketplace for alcohol in North America. On the Drizly website it states that their “purpose is to be there when it matters – committed to life's moments and the people who create them. We partner with thousands of retailers in more than 1,400 cities to empower them to grow their businesses and make our customers' good times better. Drizly is available to 100M+ customers and counting across the U.S. and Canada.”
Back to the topic at-hand, “red wines for white wine drinkers” our thoughts are “Why should someone have to choose? Why not enjoy both?
So, if you happen to be one of those die-hard white wine lovers, we completely understand. But, if you read the Drizly article and decide you might want to try a red wine once in a while (or maybe serve them to your guests) consider our EXPERIENCE collection as a glass that will bring out the best in whichever wine you are serving.
More smiles on more faces.

We’re always on the lookout for great new “finds” when it comes to new wines and new wine regions. In a recent edition of Robb Report.com, the Lodi Region of California gets some love for its for its value and quality-to-price ration wines. The Lodi area also boasts a large acreage of old and ancient vineyards, giving its wine a true sense of heritage. With both award-winning reds and whites coming from Lodi at great prices, there’s a great chance to find your “newest favorite” wine in this central California region.
To us, it sounds like wines from the Lodi region share similar characteristics with many of our wine glass collections.
Still being discovered by wine lovers everywhere, Stoelzle-produced wine glasses also provide great value and are also long on performance. It’s been that way ever since we started producing wine glasses in Germany more than 130 years ago.
So, while you’re making you discoveries of delicious new and approachable wines from a new wine-producing region, make sure you also “discover” the many wine glass collections (like our EXPERIENCE collection, above) that will make your newest favorite wine taste even better!

When we speak about the concept of “Stolzle For Life” it all starts with our guest or the consumer.
Whenever a beverage is enjoyed from a Stolzle glass, we want that beverage, that overall experience, to be truly an enjoyable and memorable experience. Studies have shown that drinking wine in moderation improves the overall quality of life. At Stolzle, we want that life to be the best that it can be. That is the reason that we design performance into every glass we make.
Making high-performance glassware requires both a talented design group and an equally talented manufacturing team for the critical execution of the performance-oriented designs. At Stolzle, we utilize our 130+ years of glassware manufacturing knowledge and experience to make sure that each glass shape delivers on its all of its promises.
A great example is our Experience collection. Originally, the range was designed initially a riesling-specific range with four glasses, covering the variety of tastes of this special type of wine. However, the design and functionality of these glasses proved to be so excellent that many people did not want to waive the overall performance and special experience with other types of wine. Therefore, the originally-named Riesling collection was extended and re-named Experience. Experience is still today the number one choice for Riesling lovers.
While delivering on performance, the machine pulled stem design of Experience both impresses with its elegant, stylish shape and its elevated levels of functionality. Today, our Experience collection has expanded and now includes a full range of stemmed wine glasses and a variety of tumblers to match.
Performance, plus style and functionality – a winning combination that has always been a part of the Stolzle Glassware tradition.
Approachable. Affordable. Available.
We love great articles on wine and spirits, especially if they’re educational and encourage us to try new regions or new varietals. Here’s a great article from Liquor.com on white wines covering key topics such as how it made and the most important varietals.
But we would add that the glass you drink your white wine from is almost as important as the wine itself. After all, if you go through the process of learning and then, selecting a specific white wine you will definitely want to taste and enjoy that wine at its very best!
Our EXPERIENCE collection was originally designed to do exactly that – to bring out the best in white wines. The range was initially a Riesling range with four glasses, which cover the variety of tastes of this special type of wine. Design and functionality of these glasses proved to be so excellent that many people didn't want to waive the special experience with other types of wine – both white and red. Therefore, the collection was extended and name of the collection became EXPERIENCE.
The machine pulled stem glasses impress with their elegant and stylish shape combined with a high wine performance. The combination of sweeping curves and clear tapering contributes to an ideal wine consumption. The deep sculpted larger circumference of the bowl tapers funnel-shaped into the pulled stem, thus creating both durable elegance and a high stability.
So, as you carefully learn about and choose your white wine, make sure you also select the right glass. Our EXPERIENCE collection is a high-performance wine glass series meant to showcase all the nuanced flavors of each grape at their very best!
