INSPIRE SENSISPLUS & ESSENCA Gold- Platinum & Copper-Edition

In the INSPIRE SENSISPLUS series, the stems of the finely blown, elegantly light ESSENCA SENSISPLUS glasses are carefully refined with colours that harmonise with each other in the workshops of Glashütte Eisch, so that the two series can be combined to match the personal taste.

The refinement of the stems in gold, copper and platinum in the ESSENCA SENSISPLUS GoldCopper and Platinum Editions creates shiny highlights. In an additional processing step, the precious metal layer is permanently protected by coating with the EISCH GPC-Protect© technology.

Our lines SKY and SUPERIOR SENSISPLUS are made of brilliant, lead-free crystal glass with state-of-the-art technology and are very break-resistant due to the technique of pulled stems. The finely blown UNITY SENSISPLUS glasses are mouth-blown by master glassblowers.

No special care is required for the SENSISPLUS glasses, so they can be treated like other high-quality crystal glasses. Their SENSISPLUS qualities will be retained as a permanent feature. The glasses are dishwasher-proof (except ESSENCA GoldPlatinum and Copper Edition).

“Eisch sent me samples of SensisPlus and non-SensisPlus glasses in two different styles. I couldn’t see any difference when I closely examined both pairs and was somewhat sceptical when I put them to the test with a full-bodied red wine. The wine in the SensisPlus glass lived up to their claim. Within a few minutes it was significantly softer and mellower than the wine in the non-SensisPlus glass.”

The development of the SENSISPLUS glass

The Idea

In recent years and over the past decades the main focus in the development of the wine glass has been to determine the shape of cup which would enable a particular wine to be enjoyed to best advantage. There has been a considerable degree of success in this respect, so that wine connaisseurs today have the choice of a wide range of different glass forms and sizes available for the enjoyment of fine vintages. However, this approach is increasingly reaching its limits since a further refinement of the shape of glass beyond the grape variety – for example according to producing area or vintage – is technically possible but hardly practicable for the individual consumer. And so we at Eisch have turned our attention since the end of the 1990s instead towards the question as to how the so-called “optimally” shaped wine glass could be developed further.

The glass

The result of this development work are the SENSISPLUS glasses which represent the gourmet glass series from Glashütte Eisch. They combine the experience and innovative power of Glashütte Eisch to create a unique interpretation of the highest level of wine enjoyment and reveal the full taste potential of the wine. The original character of the wine and its structure are retained. Eisch produces SENSISPLUS glasses not only for wine but also for spirits, fruit juices, mineral water etc.


Can other manufacturers also offer SENSISPLUS glasses?

No. The glasses were developed by EISCH and only EISCH can produce the glasses. SENSISPLUS glass is a protected brand.

What does SENSISPLUS mean

SENSISPLUS glasses develop the full taste potential of wine. The original character of the wine and its structure are retained. Enjoy a moment of SENSISPLUS enjoyment.

How are SENSISPLUS glasses produced?

The manufacture of SENSISPLUS glasses is a trade secret.The glasses are not coated with chemicals!

Is the wine changed at all by the SENSISPLUS glass?

No! The wine is not changed. Its character is retained.

Who is Ronn Wiegand?

Ronn Wiegand is a world-famous wine expert. He lives in the United States (California). He is one of the very few people in the world who are permitted to use both titles: “Master of Wine” AND “Master Sommelier”.

What does Ronn Wiegand say about SENSISPLUS glasses?

Ronn Wiegand was the first wine expert to test the glasses. He summarised the results in a letter. In it he said, among other things, that he was sceptical at first and that he then tested about 30 wines in the glasses. He was impressed by the SENSISPLUS glasses and he congratulated Glashütte EISCH on a really successful contribution to the enjoyment of wine.

Who is Robert Parker

Robert Parker is world famous among wine drinkers as the best-known wine critic. His verdicts on wine (he awards the so-called “Parker Points”) are highly rated worldwide.

What do SENSISPLUS glasses have to do with Robert Parker?

At the 25th anniversary celebrations of the Robert Parker Wine Advocate in autumn 2004 at the Culinary Institute of America, California, the glasses were presented to the public for the first time. The Wine Advocate is an important wine magazine which is published by Robert Parker.

What do you have to pay attention to if you want to do a comparison tasting with the SENSISPLUS glasses?

Ideally you should compare a SENSISPLUS glass with a similar (or as similar as possible) common glass. If this is not possible, use a glass by another manufacturer which is as close as possible in shape, size and content to the glass. Please make sure that all the glasses are washed by hand in the same way. Use a bottle that has just been opened for the tasting. Pour the same amount of wine into both glasses and wait a few minutes. Now try the wine in the SENSISPLUS glass and compare it with the wine in the standard glass.

Are SENSISPLUS glasses only available for wine?

No! EISCH manufactures SENSISPLUS glasses not only for wine but also for spirits, fruit juices, mineral water etc.

How can I recognize a SENSISPLUS glass?

You can recognize the glasses by the sand-blasted wave symbol on the base: 
SensisPlus Weingläser Logo 


And you will also see this label on the glass:

SensisPlus Weingläser Logo




How are the SENSISPLUS-glasses produced?

UNITY: The glasses are handmade in perfection of brilliant lead-free crystal by master glassblowers SKY: The glasses are made of brilliant lead-free crystal with the latest german technology. They are of thin-walled quality and yet, due to the one-piece stems, very break-resistant. SUPERIOR: The classic glasses are made with the latest technology from high-quality lead-free crystal glass. A high breaking strength through the one-piece stems characterizes these goblets.

Is a carafe for decanting the wine superfluous now?

No. If there is enough time, you should still decant the wine into a carafe because it is a pleasant ritual. In addition, a decanter is an eye-catcher on the set table. With older wines, in any case, decanting will be necessary to separate the sediments.

How should I care for my SENSISPLUS glasses?

The SENSISPLUS glass will retain its qualities permanently. It should be treated like any other high-quality crystal glass. It does not require any special care.

Can SENSISPLUS glasses be washed in the dishwasher

Yes, undecorated glasses can be washed in the dishwasher without any problem. If the glasses are decorated with painting etc. please check the care instructions supplied.
