The story of glass, which dates back to 4,000 B.C., begins in Mesopotamia, reaches Egypt around 2,500 B.C., and becomes widespread in continental Europe through the Crusades. In terms of both time and geography, the birth of glass coincides with the regions and periods in which wine was first cultivated. Throughout history, societies have preferred to serve their primary choice of drink in glass vessels. The magic of glass and the mystique of wine – the depth of its flavor, aroma, color, and appearance – complement each other.
The Rasagandha wine glass line takes its shapes from the baked mud pots that gave rise to thousands of Anatolian pots, pitchers, and cauldrons going back to around 2000 B.C. Rasagandha belongs to Anatolia's geography and rich history yet does not represent a specific period or form. It is unique.
The Rasagandha wine glass line, designed by Faruk Malhan and enhanced by red wine, white wine, champagne, grappa, and cognac glasses, has a distinctive character; these wine glasses are designed to give the real flavour and aroma of wine and address all senses individually.
