Tapio Wirkkala’s Ultima Thule glassware similarly references the icy cold reaches of Scandinaiva and the distinct expressive power of Finnish glass. Designed in 1968, Wirkkala’s Ultima Thule contributed to iittala’s national breakthrough and remains a distinctive iittala design.The Ultima Thule stemmed red wine glass has textured sides that reference the northern icy terrain of Scandinavia. The unique texture of the glass is created by a time-laboring technique that is created by the molten glass burning the surface of the wooden moulds.

Perfect winter wine glasses.
I have always admired these glasses and am so glad I finally bought them. They arrived quickly and very well packaged. Although they are expensive, they are very sturdy and should last many years.
ProsCan go into the dishwasher. Stems are relatively short, so they are easy to store in a cabinet.

Stemmed red wine glasses
I had previously purchased some of these to add to my dishes of the same design and after I found out how versatile the size was for other beverages, I purchased more and love using them. My grandchildren enjoy using them too and I don't worry about breakage as they are a bit heavier than many glasses.

ConsNothing to dislike!
