“One For All” – The Preferred Universal Wine Glass
What’s more important to the wine enthusiast — a cupboard full of fragile wine glasses in different sizes and shapes, or a good supply of an acclaimed all-purpose, universal wine glass and a cellar full of wine? The “One for All” Gabriel-Glas is ideal for any style and varietal of wine. The stunning lead-free crystal glass is offered in two qualities —the “workhorse” StandArt wine glass, and the “paper-thin” mouth-blown Gold Edition Gabriel-Glas. Both versions of Gabriel-Glas are sublime examples of form following function: The glass functions to fully express the wine it delivers, be it Champagne, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling or Chardonnay – any wine shines in Gabriel-Glas. And the glass’s graceful form is a unique silhouette pleasurable to the senses.
Designed to Decant
Form follows function: Gabriel-Glas is designed to act as a gentle decanter that allows the flavors and aromas of wine to emerge in the glass and then delivers it to the palate in a manner that expresses even the subtlest flavors. The glass’s broader-based bowl – 95 millimeters wide — along with the gentle conical shape at the top of the glass — 66-millimeters at the mouth – is a shape engineered for maximum sensation. Get close to the wine: The glass’s elegant and striking shape enables a wine’s aroma to emerge in the vessel and allows a wine’s nuances to unfold. The glass delivers an extremely enjoyable wine drinking experience.
Elegant & Durable
The Gabriel-Glas is strong by design. Both the StandArt and the Gold Edition glasses are fused as seamless vessels with no stress points, differentiating them from many glasses that have a seam at the base of the bowl where it affixes to the stem and another where the stem affixes to the footplate. As a seamless glass, Gabriel-Glas is more durable than many other glasses on the market.
The Gabriel-Glas StandArt glass is molded with a wider base at the bottom of the glass and a conical shape at the top, designed to drive the bouquet and flavors of wine. The glass is wonderfully balanced, durable yet elegant, space-saving and economical. An everyday go-to glass.
The Gabriel-Glas Gold Edition glass, shaped exactly like the StandArt glass, is an exquisite mouth-blown vessel, painstakingly crafted by master artisans. The “lighter than air” Gold Edition glass offers great finesse and delivers a sensational wine-drinking experience. It is supremely elegant and delicate, yet surprisingly durable.
Gabriel-Glas is dishwasher safe. However, not all dishwashers, dishwasher soaps, and dishwasher loaders are created equal! Our glasses are lead-free crystal and seamless making them durable, but like all fine things, they must be handled with care.
