|Viticole Tasting Glass
The INAO (Institut National des Appelations d'Origine) has long been the designer of a tasting glass for serious wine buffs. It is in general use in Europe. Until now, we could offer only the hand-blown INAO glass. But recently a manchine-made glass of the has proportions has come on the market. It is 6 inches tall and holds 7 1/4 ounces. A slightly larger glass of the same general proportions is also shown below. It holds 10 1/2 ounces and stands 6 7/8 inches tall.

|Durand Lead Crystal
These wine glasses from France are evidence that the French are taking their glasses as seriously as they do their wines. "A tasteful glass for the taste of wine," is their guideline. They gave careful attention to the size and shape of the bowls, the thin rim, the diameter of the mouth, even the diameter of the foot. These are hand blown of 24 percent lead crystal, and attractively boxed in pairs. The larger of the two serves water or wine equally well. The smaller one is useful either for red or white wine. They are produced by Crystal d'Arques, a segment of the gigantic ARC International.
