from vine to glass with Sur la Table + Fortessa

There’s something so simple, yet sweet about gathering around a table with good wine, great food, and interesting people. Recently, Sur la Table and Fortessa teamed up and invited me to the perfect late summer dinner party at DeLille Cellars to do just that! Over sumptuous wine and amazing, locally sourced dishes, we toasted to their newest collaboration, the Schott Zwiesel Air collection of gorgeous glassware. Keep reading to see even more of this beautiful collection, what we drank and ate, and what makes this glassware so special.

Typically, when I think of gorgeous meals like this, the food is always center stage, but for this dinner party the wine was truly the star of the show… and the Air and Air Sense glasses provided the ultimate stage. Honestly, I’ve never seen glassware this clear and brilliant — it was like each glass was illuminated from within somehow. I was lucky enough to bring some of the glassware home with me and I cannot wait to entertain guests in #mytinybungalow this fall with them!

The glasses are also extremely durable because they are made of the best crystal glass, with titanium and zirconium which helps to provide that gorgeous brilliance. Plus, if you’re clumsy like me, these glasses are perfect because they are durable, dishwasher safe (!!!), and chip and scratch resistant. When I say they are durable, what I mean is that during dinner, someone hit a glass on the table and it didn’t even chip. Yeah, I held my breath for that stunt ;)

See that glass bubble in the middle of my glass? This is the Air Sense collection which helps to aerate the wine, making it even more delicious. Each Air Sense glass is basically a miniature work of art because it’s handmade and mouth blown. The design of the glass is especially fun because it was created in collaboration with Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and his design firm Bernadotte & Kylberg and Schott Zwiesel.

Each of the delicious courses were served on the crispest, cleanest white dinnerware I’ve ever seen… but really, I should have been well-versed in this pieces: the dinnerware was made by Fortessa, who also makes most the tableware for 5 star hotels in North America. When I was a designer and worked on tabletop pieces, I could only hope of designing plates this thin and gorgeous… Trust me when I say this, it’s a true sign of quality that they are able to produce such delicate tableware in this shade of pure white. Once this dining room makeover is complete, I just might need to invest in some more ‘grown up’ dinnerware!

The evening was truly magical, while also being informative (I had no idea what went into making glassware!) — and the perfect excuse to chat with other bloggers, chefs, and wine geeks in a gorgeous setting.
