Titillating Your Tipple

Zahara Homeware’s Inspired Luxury Glassware

Hidden away at a beautiful beach house in Isla Negra some 45 kilometres south of Valparaiso, Chile, you may find an array of coloured glasses belonging to poet Pablo Neruda, who believed that different colours would enhance the taste of wine. Could this be true?

To answer the question, Zahara threw two parties in early 2017 to find out, serving identical wines to the same guests. Unwittingly, the guests were marvelling at the rich aromas of the wine during the second party. Wine and guests all remained the same, the only difference being Zahara’s visually enchanting glasses. The exquisite artisanal work boasted a range of hand-painted colours and shapes, inviting and further sustaining a steady stream of conversation throughout the night.

Heartened by this warm response, Zahara begun traveling around the world, drawing on countless spectacular sights for inspiration to enrich its repertoire of glasses, while sharing their experiences to any with a keen ear.

Now anyone can delight in the beauty and novel drinking experience a Zahara glass offers.
