Wine glasses are a tricky purchase for many folks. When guests are around for dinner or a casual meal with the family, you want a quality and authentic wine glass as it will compliment the rest of your cutlery and company. Manufacturing in Italy provides jobs for the local Italian economy, rather than cheap labor abroad. That is why I have written an article on wine glasses manufactured and sold in Italy.
Brands That Sell Wine Glasses Made in Italy (The Short Answer)
Throughout my research on wine glasses manufactured in Italy, I found five different brands. These five brands are Design Italy, My Italian Decor, Murano Glass, The Italian Collector, and Gifts Plaza.
Design Italy was founded by Roberto Ferrari and his wife, Paola. A strong passion for design and manufacturing in Italy ignited the idea to begin this business. Design Italy wishes to supply clients across the globe, with the aim of always benefiting its customers.
The company is proud to be a part of the Italian Netcomm Consortium, which pairs together e-commerce companies and enables Design Italy to sell worldwide. Being able to sell Italian-made products worldwide is becoming difficult, but Design Italy is proving it can still be possible.
All of Design Italy’s products are 100% made in Italy. Design Italy’s products are manufactured in Italy as the owners believe that promoting Italian-made products and Italian business is important for the economy. Production in Italy is slowly dying and Design Italy likes to think it is keeping this going.

Murano Glass is a business based in Murano, just off the coast of mainland Italy. The island is famous for being the island of glassware. The glass used to manufacture its products is formed from silica, which is liquified at a high temperature and formed into a soft glass that can be molded into almost any desired shape.
Using this technique opens up many possibilities for intricate designs, Murano Glass employs local and experienced manufacturers in order to handcraft the wine glasses using this unique handcrafting method. Murano Glass is proud to call itself a 100% Italian-made company. Each wine glass is handmade using glass from Murano, constructed by workers in Murano.
Murano Glass is proud to stick by traditions and provide manufacturing and craft jobs for the local economy. It is a company that many people use worldwide due to its recognition as a premium wine glass manufacturer and seller.

The Italian Collector
The Italian Collector has a purpose. Its purpose is to discover beautifully handmade Italian products and sell them, spreading awareness for Italian hand craftsmanship. The business was birthed due to a love for Italian glassware by the owner’s grandmother.
This obsession was infectious and inspired the founder to seek out Italian glassware and sell it to others. The Italian Collector has a target market for those who consider themselves passionate experts in Italian glassware and manufacturing.
Italian craft is ingrained in the culture and The Italian Collector feels it is important to embrace this. After all, it would be a waste to allow Italian artisan products to go under the radar. The Italian Collector’s passion for Italian-handmade products is as large as their cultural appreciation for it. This is why the company only purchases products that are 100% made in Italy.
