The Italesse Story

Italesse is an Italian glass producer that was originally founded in 1979 to address the lack of style and quality found in the glassware being used by beverage makers, hotels, restaurants and resorts. In 2007, Italesse took its experience producing bottles and glassware for professionals and started a line of modern glassware suitable for the home. They also expanded from glass into plastics, bringing that signature Italesse touch to the design of durable plastic stemware, tumblers and ice buckets for safe and glamorous indoor and outdoor use.

Why We Love Italesse

Whether you have a restaurant or are just entertaining at home, Italesse glassware is designed to impress and improve your drinking and dining experiences. Italesse wine glasses, decanters, champagne flutes and so on are carefully mouth-blown or molded by experienced glass workers. The resulting glass is strong, elegant and comfortable to hold, and sparkles with the apparent confidence of its fine craftsmanship. The plastic vessels are just as thoughtfully made, and they have the added benefit of being unbreakable and scratch resistant.
