The House of Puiforcat has a knack for organizing remarkable encounters. To tackle the art of enjoying wine, the Maison brought together Lombardy native Enrico Bernardo, 2004 “World's Best Sommelier,” and London-based designer Michael Anastassiades, champion of minimalist elegance. Together, they rose to a formidable challenge: how were they to combine two substances that do not make for an ideal combination, metal and wine? Simple, by separating them! The partners thus imagined a chalice that would sit on a silver-plated metal base. What about the stem? It was simply eliminated. The relationship between the taster and the receptacle, the interaction between the nectar and the palate thus became more natural and sensual.
