Wine glasses and granite counters

Profsuzy | Nov 14, 2009 09:59 AM

My husband just hinted to me that he'd like some nice Riedel wine glasses for Christmas. I must admit that I'm hesitant, mostly because we go through wine glasses awfully fast in our new house with granite counters. I've read a few posts from readers who have the Schott Zwiesel glasses made with the "Tritan" glass. These are supposed to be sturdier than the Riedel, which as someone put it, break if you breathe too hard on them. Can anyone tell me if the Schott Zwiesel glasses qualify as quality wine glasses? Are the rims nice and thin? Do they feel good in the hand? I live in the boondocks. so I'll have to order them sight unseen over the net. If anyone has other suggestions for wine glasses that are elegant yet don't break when the touch granite, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
