Nomen est omen


Spearheading a new class

SPIEGELAU's Authentis series was the herald of a new class of professional glassware. The company was one of the first manufacturers in the world to make the most of cutting-edge high-tech production technology, incorporating findings from the world of wine appreciation and perfecting its designs down to the tiniest detail. The result is Authentis. An instant first choice among sommeliers that rapidly advanced to become a model for other later glassware series.

In the past, the highest quality standards were reserved for hand-blown goblets alone. The debut of the new Authentis series in the year 2000 thus ushered in a whole new era of industrial glass production. The joins of the bowl, stem and foot combination are seamless, revealing no hint of their factory origins.


Every glass radiates design quality

The flawless design is a hallmark of perfection and expresses its essence in its name: the Authentis series turns the spotlight on the individual character of the wine, allowing its full sensory impact to come to the fore.

Authentis has received a Certificate of Excellence from the German sommeliers’ association, Sommelier-Union Deutschland which highlights its perfect functionality and outstanding quality. In addition, the Authentis White Wine Glass was the winner of a major wine glass test conducted by prestigious French magazine "La Revue du Vin de France” to find the best “universal” wine glass.

For SPIEGELAU, this enthusiastic acclaim from the cognoscenti both confirmed the path the company had taken and inspired it to continue and advance further.
