Gabriel Glas Mouth Blown #16737
Aromas unfold as the wine expresses itself in this unique lead-free mouth-blown crystal glass thanks to the conical shape and bouquet-driven design. Restaurants, tasting rooms and oenophiles love this durable glass that brilliantly and simply showcases the finest qualities of all wines.
From the Robb Report (February 2015): "For the last 20 years, one mark of a serious wine connoisseur has been a cabinet spilling over with specific glasses for every varietal. But lately a backlash against this tyranny of stemware has taken hold, and a number of fine-glass makers have responded with "universal" designs meant to enhance every sort of wine. One of the best is the Gabriel-Glas. Made in Slovakia from a design by the wine critic Rene Gabriel, its broad bowl increases the surface-to-air ratio, essentially decanting the wine in the glass, while its graceful curve channels aromas to the nose and gently delivers wine to the tongue. Gabriel-Glas fans include influential sommeliers such as Mark Bright of Saison and Luke Kenning of Farallon, and after testing the glasses with wines from Barolo to Riesling, we too found ourselves reaching for this delicate vessel over the many others crowding the shelf."

Absolutely wonderful glasses with a beautiful shape!

These glasses are incredibly light! They are a dream to hold, but the added plus is the wine tastes so much better in these glasses compared to our other brands. I would recommend these lovely glasses to anyone who is a wine aficionado.
It makes any good wine you have almost 30% better
With a few friends we compared this glass with a few other glasses (Riedel Sommelier Bordeaux, Riedel Ouverture Red, Rona Charisma, Gabriel Stand'Art). We were surprised at how much difference there is between the aroma of the same wine served in different glasses. Among all glasses tried, the Gabriel mouth blown consistently delivered the most nuanced aromas and greatly enhanced any good wine. At $50 each it's a no brainer as it makes any good wine you have almost 30% better. It will pay for itself after just a few bottles. It is also incredibly light and delicate and just a sheer joy to hold in your hand.
Good balance, very durable. Able to use with reds or whites.
This is one of the best universal glasses I have found. I think the mouth blown glass is worth extra cost if you are always careful to wash these by hand. Worth it.
Very Nice, Great Balance, Lightweight
This new glass from Gabriel is wonderful because it's so light and balanced in the hand. I love that it's a universal shape, so I can drink red or white wine with the same glass, which means I don't have to have separate glasses taking up space in my cabinets! I couldn't tell the difference between the machine made vs the mouth blown, but the price difference was significant so I chose the machine made.
