The renowned Swiss wine critic René Gabriel, is the creative genius behind the Austrian-made Gabriel-Glas a perfectly shaped glass designed to highlight the bouquet of white, red, sparkling and dessert wine. The broader base of the bottom of the glass is a “bouquet-driver.” The slightly conical design concentrates the aromas and pleasurably delivers them to the consumer and offers “unbelievable wine enjoyment.” The Gabriel-Glas is elegant, sturdy and dishwasher safe.
Why is Gabriel Glas superior to standard wine glasses?
One Glass for All
The glass is ideal for every style of wine. Form follows function: The broader base of the bowl of the glass — a precise 95 millimetres — and the conical shape at the top of the glass— allows for the “nose” of a wine, its top, middle and a base notes to emerge in the glass. The glass acts as a gentle decanter. The shape is designed for the maximum enjoyment of every varietal and style of wine served in the glass. These glasses are supplied in standard catering style boxes and are ideal for bulk purchases.
Dishwasher Safe Crystal
The Gabriel-Glas is strong by design. Each glass is either molded — the StandArt glass — or blown — the Gold Edition glass — as one piece, seamless with no stress points (e.g. at the base of the bowl, or base of the stem like many other glasses). Gabriel-Glas, of Austria, is lead-free crystal and perfectly safe in your dishwasher! So invite your friends over and don’t worry about hand washing all those glasses. Save time, space and money.
Large on Your Palate
The shape of the glass was designed to allow for the wine to flow freely onto your palate with a focused, rather than defused, distribution of wine normally created by bulbous-style wine glasses. This provides for perfect extraction of the wine, balanced between the acidity and its sweetness. Because of the broader base and narrow opening of the glass, the wine flow is more broadly distributed in the Gabriel-Glas in contrast to many other glasses. Gabriel-Glas delivers wine to the palate in a manner that expresses even the most subtle flavors.
