Do it yourself
Look over the glassblower's shoulder - this is how a professional works: The glass is heated in the flame and turned until it becomes viscous at about 1000 degrees. The desired glass structure is gradually created by pulling, blowing and driving, as if by magic.
Now it's your turn. Under the guidance of the expert you blow your own wine glass. It is a very special experience to hold and form an otherwise fragile, cold material as soft and liquid as honey.
And while you are doing it yourself, the glassblower will tell you about glass, little anecdotes and personal experiences.
Has your glass received the desired shape? Now it only takes a little patience until it has cooled down and can be filled with fruity white wine, orange juice or mineral water. Now enjoy a small aperitif, e.g. with bread and a little cheese and toast with your self-blown glass.
You will of course be able to take your glass home as a souvenir.
If your group is larger than 20 people, we recommend booking an additional event. Then the group can be split up, as otherwise too long waiting times arise for the individual persons. How about forging a barbecue skewer, a guided tour of the distillery or a chocolate workshop?
