Jon Bonné wrote a gift guide for the holidays, shining a spotlight on Gabriel-Glas for a universal wine glass:
“The worthy entry this year is from Gabriel-Glas, which somewhat resembles its Austrian counterpart, Zalto. While the Zalto glasses follow the model of a different shape for each type of wine, Gabriel-Glas went the other way, with a “One for All” design meant to flatter a wide range of wine styles. That’s welcome news to wine lovers who don’t want to buy a full range of glassware — and while the Gabriel-Glas stems aren’t inexpensive ($29 apiece) they are surprisingly durable and work, as a universal glass, remarkably well. In truth, there’s a second glass in Gabriel-Glas’ line — a $55 handblown version that’s featherweight but otherwise quite similar in shape. It’s too late to order from the Gabriel-Glas online store (www.winegls.com) in time for Christmas, but you can find them at such local stores as Plumpjack, Paul Marcus Wines, Artisan Wine Depot and Bay Grape.”
