Top European stemware manufacturers celebrate their notable collections with these exquisite new goblets, flutes, and crystal accessories.  

Wingen-sur-Moder, France
Last fall, crystal manufacturer Lalique and wine critic James Suckling released a universal wineglass to such acclaim that the team has created eight additional pieces. The full 100 Points collection, which debuted in October, features Bordeaux, Burgundy, and water glasses in addition to a Champagne flute, two different-sized tumblers, a decanter, and a water carafe—all with the simple frosted crystal ribbing that made the first 100 Points wineglass a success. Prices range from $90 for a tumbler to $990 for the decanter.

Kufstein, Austria
Riedel, which has been in the glassmaking business for almost three centuries, was the first company to release a line of varietal-specific stemware, in 1973. Known as the Sommeliers series, each glass is shaped differently in order to complement the bouquet and flavor of various types of wine. To celebrate Sommeliers’ 40th anniversary, the Austrian brand released Sommeliers Black Series in September. The collection features six shapes—including Zinfandel, vintage port, and Montrachet glasses—and it is Riedel’s first collection to be made entirely from black crystal. Two red-stemmed versions of the series also are available, one with a black bowl and base and the other with a clear crystal bowl and a black base. All glasses are priced at $159 each.

Lorraine, France
Saint-Louis’s Thistle—a nine-piece Art Nouveau collection of barware distinguished by its hand-brushed 24-karat gold and platinum details, Venetian-style cuts, and acid etching—turns 100 this year. To mark the occasion, the oldest crystal manufacturer in Europe has added two new Thistle items: a nearly 12-inch vase ($3,000) available with gold or platinum engraving, and a paperweight ($5,250) that is limited to 25 examples and features an etched blue thistle that is created using a blowtorch.
