Schott Zwiesel Quality Guaranteed
Examine the foot of a Schott Zwiesel glass and you will see a tiny, discrete logo on the foot plate. This is

fail for unusual reasons we provide a forensic investigation service that can determine how/why a glass failed.
Only a genuine Schott Zwiesel wine glass bears this maker’s quality mark.
