Squat goblets with thick rims and fat stems once defined the American wine glass. Ubiquitous in red sauce joints and antiquated white tablecloth restaurants, stemware since has come a long way. Today, the gold standard is made by Austrian company Gabriel Glas.
The key to the brand’s design success? Paper thin bowls so delicate they meld with the wine becoming barely perceptible. In other words, there’s virtually no barrier between the consumer and an ethereal white Burgundy. The stem is equally feather light and svelte, evocative of a poised crane or heron balancing on one leg. However, fragility is only in appearance. Gabriel markets their glassware as mouth-blown, lead-free dishwasher-safe wine glasses.
While these glasses cost MORE than Zaltos in the US, we are thrilled to offer them to you at $10.00 less!
