NEW YORK-Crystal maker Eisch USA invites New York Tabletop Show attendees to test the benefits of Eisch's SensisPlus glasses with selected Austrian wines from boutique Austrian wineries.

On Tuesday, Oct. 12, and Wednesday, Oct. 13, company president Alan Zalayet will open one bottle from 4-6 p.m. on the hour and on the half hour to pour for assembled guests in the company's showroom at Forty One Madison. He will then ask visitors to describe their experience having tasted the same wine out of two glasses; one glass with the SensisPlus treatment, and one that is "classic." Both glasses will have been blown from the same glass melt and have exactly the same bowl shape and stem; the only difference is the treatment.

Monika Caha, proprietor of Monika Caha Selections, will provide examples from each of her portfolio's artisanal vineyards that encompass nine of Austria's 16 wine regions. "Not only do I think that SensisPlus aids in the enjoyment of my portfolio of wines, Eisch Glaskultur, with its generations of glassmaking, understands well the needs of my winemakers who themselves come from generations of wine producers," Caha said.
