Ravenscroft's Decanters Collection are hand crafted by the most highly committed European craftsmen in shapes and sizes to meet all needs of the world of fine wine. The Decanters Collection are produced from ancient mineral deposits free of impurities. Using such pure raw materials eliminates the need to add lead content in order to produce brilliant crystal. This is particularly important following the recent discovery that long-term storage in leaded decanters can result in lead leaching into the contents.
The world's most famous enologist, once said, "A wine glass should be invisible." In this spirit, Ravenscroft's mission is to produce the most transparent, lightweight wine glasses possible. Their delicate stemware delivers a whisper-light, sensuous hand and mouth feel. Each glass is shaped to perfectly control the palate attack, delivering a pure essence with minimal distraction.
"Pure, Clean Crystal" Over the past four decades, wine and spirits glass design has experienced a renaissance. Recently, scientists discovered the dangers of lead crystal, most significantly when storing wine and spirits for an extended period in decanters, allowing lead to leach into the contents. Originally, lead oxide was added to glassware as a manufacturing aid. Now, technology has progressed to the point where the addition of lead delivers little or no value to the wine enthusiasts' experience. Despite increasingly stronger industry warnings, several of the world's top stemware manufacturers continue to use lead in production.
Ravenscroft Crystal's time has come. The public now understands that lead-free crystal is the future of the glass industry. Ravenscroft is the world's leading manufacturer of hand-made, pure, clean, lead-free crystal for fine wine and spirits. Their 129-year-old European factory has been producing lead-free crystal for the most exclusive brands of the world. Most likely, you have enjoyed the delicate pleasure of their products under another brand name.
The founder of Ravenscroft, Stephen Falango, has leveraged his background in Economics and Public Policy, with an unbridled passion for wine, to shape the Company as well as the glasses. As a young man during his Master's studies, he became deeply committed to environmental protection, which resulted in his dedication to lead-free crystal. In the spring of 1999, Stephen proposed that their factory create a line of wine-specific stemware and decanters. Stephen's passion and experience as a wine educator, sommelier, wine maker, avid wine collector and entrepreneur inspired his craftspeople to focus on maximizing the pleasure of wine while respecting the wellbeing of wine lovers worldwide.
