Ratings & Reviews
I was amazed when I opened the shipment - this glass has jewel-like facets to the stem that are stunning the way they reflect light. I love thin hand blown stemware like this, and plan to give it to a friend as a wedding gift. The chic cylinder packaging is so stylish that I still keep my glass in it, and it's wonderful for transporting too, almost like having a built-in wine tote. So far I am impressed by the Sommeliers line overall.

But please take the stickers off of the glass. You package them so well and then put the stupid hard to remove stickers on them. HUH?
