Wine & Bar Essesntials
The Dartington Wine & Bar Essentials range is a great collection of glassware that really is indispensable! A comprehensive collection of crystal glassware for beers, wines and spirits which is smart enough for entertaining and special occasions, and also practical and suitable for dishwasher use. The range includes the usual suspects like red wine, white wine and champagne glasses, and a few slightly more unusual suspects such as copa, margarita and martini cocktail glasses for an authentic drinking experience. Also in the range, beer glasses, tumblers and shot glasses are the perfect pieces for any party. To top the range off, we have port, sherry and brandy glasses all shaped for flavour.
The Wine & Bar Essentials glassware is made using high performance crystal which has excellent clarity and durability, and is also dishwasher safe, making this a great range of glassware for everyday use as well as special occasions. Each glass comes in a boxed set of 2, with the exception of the shot glasses which are boxed in 6's and the individual carafe and decanter.
The Wine & Bar Essesntials glassware range is manufactured in Poland, a country that is renowned for it's superior glass manufacturing industry. We check each set of glasses before dispatch, however if any of your glasses arrive in less-than-perfect condition please contact our customer services department and we can arrange to replace the whole set or to have individual glasses sent out to you.
Care Guidelines For Your Dartington Crystal Glassware
Wash your glassware before use.
When washing glassware use warm soapy water and a lint-free cloth.
Rinse glassware with clear warm water.
Dartington Crystal can be used in the dishwasher if handled with care and using a low temperature washing cycle.
Dry with a soft cloth holding glasses by the bowl not the stem.
Avoid twisting the stems of your glassware during washing and drying.
If staining appears on any of your glassware, it can be removed with vinegar on a soft cloth, or soak in a solution of vinegar and water (50/50).
A mild abrasive such as rice or crushed eggshells can be used inside containers. Stand or store crystal stemware right side up to avoid damage to stemware rims.
Expose glassware to rapid temperature changes, e.g. very hot oven or cold water.
Use glassware products in microwave or conventional oven or in a freezer.
Never stack one glass inside another.
The Dartington Story
Since 1967, Dartington has created inspired choices in crystal and glass for the home and to give as a gift. Many original Dartington glass makers were brought to Devon from Sweden, so it is no surprise that Dartington glass and crystal has an elegant, clean design style. It is Dartington's aim to make glassware that is admired but also used and enjoyed for many years. Today, Dartington is the only crystal factory remaining in the UK, and their crystal collection continues to be hand made at the Torrington factory (well worth a visit if you can!), set in the rolling hills of North Devon. Dartington also offers hand made glassware collections which are designed in England and crafted to high standards by Polish or Slovakian manufacturers. Value for money and superior durability are also provided by selected machine made drinkware in lead free crystal.
