I do enjoy a classic looking champagne glass, but these are wonderful glasses. The new shape of these glasses is great feels stable in your hand and holds up well.

This is excellent glassware. It is well crafted. I tipped the glass over on my counter top and the glass did not break! The glass has nice structure and gives a very good taste.
I was on a tour of the Korbel winery in Sonoma County, and one of the people in my tour group recommended these glasses. I went home with several different varieties of Korbel I liked from the tasting, and decided to order a set of these glasses to go along with them. When the glasses arrived I set up a tasting party. It's amazing, comparing them to my ordinary champagne glasses, these really are engineered to maximize the look and the flavor of good sparkling wines. Everyone in the group agreed, even in blind taste tests! Now my problem is we drank all my Korbel ... I guess I have to go back!
