KROSNO Ava Wine Glasses are modern, rounded shaped wine glasses.  They are among the most versatile glasses in that their shape can be used with a variety of red and white wines.  This set of 4 glasses with 12-oz. capacity is most often used with red wines.  It is made with clear, clean glass, so the rich color of the red wine can be seen.  It has an extra long and elegant pulled stem that is comfortable to hold, but that still allows you to cradle the bowl to warm the wine with your hand.  The top of the glass is fire-polished for a smooth finish.  And it tilts slightly inward, focusing the aroma of your wine for a more satisfying experience.  The glass is also carefully blown so that the bowl is thin.  This ensures that when you drink your wine, you will taste wine and not the glass.  It is an elegant glass for an elegant evening at home by yourself, with your family, or entertaining.

The Ava Line of wine glasses includes the 8-ounce champagne, 10-ounce, 12-ounce, and 16-ounce wine glasses.

  • Each piece is carefully reviewed for quality and clarity, ensuring KROSNO's high standards.  Still, glass is fragile and requires careful handling to ensure years of enjoyment.

Ava Wine Glasses

Handmade Ava Wine Glasses have pronounced character and distinctness. They are a perfect combination of long-lasting traditions of hand-blown glass molding and modern design. Every glass, with its elegantly long stem, is designed to enhance the experience and taste of the wine it holds. The set is the one and only choice for those who can appreciate elegant table settings. The line was created in 2004 and still remains a favorite today.

Rim

Cut for a thin edge, then hand polished and fire polished for a smooth, clean edge.

Bowl

Exceptionally tall and spacious bowl that is wonderfully clear so the suble color of the champagne shines.

Stem

The extra long stem on Ava Wine Glasses is striking and elegant.  It effectively isolates the wine in the glass from the warmth in your hand.  Perfect for white wines and champagnes, and for controlling the warmth with reds.
  • Ava's pulled stems are made from the same grab as the bowl for a seamless stem. This provides durability and stability to the wine glass.
  • By contrast, attached stems are made from a separate grab of glass that is attached when the bowl is still hot.

Base, or foot

The broad base enhances stability and balance.

Handling and Care


Each KROSNO piece is carefully reviewed for quality and clarity, ensuring KROSNO’s high standards. Still, glass is fragile and requires careful handling to ensure years of enjoyment. 

We highly recommend hand washing stemware and handmade glass. If you choose to wash glass in a dishwasher, make sure that the glass is not touching metal or any other glass to reduce the risk of incidental breakage.


For best presentation:

  • Hand wash in warm water with minimal detergent; rinse in clean water
    • If washing in a dishwasher, be sure glass is not touching other glass or metal; remove prior to final rinse
  • Dry by hand with a soft microfiber cloth
    • Even if machine washing, remove the glass prior to the final rinse and drying cycle which may leave deposits on your glass
  • Polish glass using a microfiber cloth (i.e., polishing cloth)
  • Prior to serving, steam glass and polish once more for extra brilliant shine
    • Steam glass by holding the opening of your glassware about 6 inches about the spout of a steaming tea kettle until it fogs.  Polish the glass until the fog is completely gone. Admire the shine.


How to polish a wine glass:

Polishing glass preserves the brightness, shine, and clarity of your KROSNO glass.  It also prevents build up and deposit from minerals in water and beverages.  For the most beautiful, longest lasting glassware, polish your glass regularly.  And for striking dinner parties, don't forget to give your stemware a good steam!

ORDER: Inside, Rim, Bowl, Stem, Base

  1. Cradling the bowl of the class in one hand, carefully polish the inside of the glass with the other
  2. Next, gently run the polishing cloth (microfiber) around the rim of the glass
  3. Without leaving fingerprints where you've already polished, polish the outside of the bowl
  4. Holding the base of the glass, polish down the stem
  5. Last, polish the base.

NEVER twist the bowl and base in opposite directions.
