Standardized Form

The new wine tasting glass made by SCHOTT Zwiesel will replace the standardized types (forms K, T1, T2) established in 1981. It is described in the German Industrial Standard (DIN) No. 10960, which does not only include its dimensions, volume, material and execution, but also the necessary guidelines for its use as a testing tool. Those tasting glasses that meet the standard are allowed to bear the DIN association sign, which is then placed on the foot of the glass. German wine experts are so convinced of the usefulness and effectiveness of this new tasting glass that they are even wondering whether it would be a good idea to suggest it as a replacement for the internationally standardized “ISO Glass”.
