A unique suite of wine glasses explicitly designed to enhance flavor and bouquet; brings a new dimension to the enjoyment of fine wine. Form and function have been carefully tested. Difference is the creation of Erika Lagerbielke; one of Sweden's foremost stemware designers; who worked on the new glasses in close cooperation with wine connoisseur Bengt-Goran Kronstam. Unlike other wine glasses; Difference is designed to reflect the wine's maturity rather than grape variety or region; which often demand many different types of glass. In the Difference concept; all that is needed are two glasses for red wines (young and mature); two glasses for white wines (dry/crisp and fruit); one glass for champagne (tall and narrow to conserve the bubbles; yet gently curved to capture the bouquet) and a small glass for sweet dessert wines. All Difference glasses have their own distinctive design idiom - their large bowls are strikingly curved; their stems slender and tall; bringing elegance and beauty to the glass. The broad foot; meanwhile; adds visual and physical stability. I probably worked on Difference more than on any other design; both aesthetically and functionally; says Erica Lagerbielke who in 2002 celebrated her twentieth anniversary as an Orrefors designer.
